Tucked away off a residential street in the leafy Buckinghamshire town of Beaconsfield is a wonder in miniature – the model village of Bekonscot. It is one of our local attractions so we know it well but if you live in London, the South East or are vaguely handy for the M40, you should certainly look it up. Here are five reasons why you should visit Bekonscot.
Odds Farm Park has introduced fresh and local food and a brilliant new play area to boot. We headed over to this favourite destination of families in Bucks, Berk, Herts and beyond to get the low down.

My daughter loves pink and ponies. Turns out she loves duelling gladiators too.
Peter Rabbit and his friends from the animated series on CBeebies have a brand new home at Willows Activity Farm, just off the M25 near St Albans. 3-year-old Tilly puts the new Peter Rabbit Adventure Playground to the test and we find out what else is new down on the farm.
I take a look at annual passes for child-friendly attractions to help Tilly enjoy her final year before school.
Tucked away in north west London, a little way before Metro-land begins to give way to the Hertfordshire countryside lies an unexpected taste of the seaside. On a hot summer’s day Ruislip Lido provides a scene that wouldn’t at a glance look out of place on the Med with a beach that’s teeming with families and sunbathers. We popped by for the Ruislip Woods Festival and to see the lido’s attractions and weren’t disappointed.
A combination of increasingly warm weather plus a clutch of events made for a busy Bank Holiday weekend.
Months of being stuck inside are drawing to a close and we’ve been making use of our National Trust membership to rediscover nature with some fabulous days out.
Child friendly activities can feel thin on the ground at the start of the year. The weather is cold and wet, while many attractions are closed. Fortunately the February half term sees many reopen with bags of events to boot. Here’s my pick of toddler and preschooler days out this February half term for South Buckinghamshire, South West Herts and the surrounding area.
