Trying to keep the kids busy this summer? Look no further for ideas of loads to do around Buckinghamshire and the surrounding area.
A railway museum and a Steampunk festival may sound like an unlikely combination but it actually makes for a brilliant family day out, as we discovered at Buckinghamshire Railway Centre.
The charming Buckinghamshire village of Great Missenden was for a long time the home of author Roald Dahl, most famous for his children’s books. Now it’s home to a the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre, dedicated to celebrating his life and work and inspiring the creativity of new generations of children. I take young Tilly to introduce her to the world of Dahl for the first time, plus we’ve a golden ticket giveaway with a family ticket to the museum up for grabs.
I recently made a phizz-whizzing discovery of a marvellous charity just down the road from us. Read about their work plus win a family ticket to the Roald Dahl Museum in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire.
Amersham Museum has a great selection of activities over the summer holiday to keep the kids busy. I take Tilly to check out what’s on at this little museum with a big local heart.
I do enjoy a good walk but getting my daughter similarly enthused isn’t always straightforward. Traditional walks for us grown ups often revolve around a stop at a recommended hostelry. Giving a child-friendly twist to the format, I decided to see if I could entice Tilly on a walk with a family friendly pub as the goal.
The Legoland pass for preschool aged children offers unlimited off-peak visits a year for only £60. Could this be the best value annual pass for stay-at-home parents? I take Tilly to find out.
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.
