Following on from the success of our first family abroad last autumn, we were keen to take Tilly on another family holiday in the sun. In late March / early April we decided that the Med would likely be on the cool side still, so we decided to look further afield to the Canary Islands. The weather is pretty reliable for much of the year but it comes with the downside of a four hour flight. Find out how we got on.
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.
