The school holidays are here and the kids need keeping busy for six long weeks. Together with Cassie at Mummy on a Budget, we have Buckinghamshire covered, with what’s on listings and ideas for days out across the county as well as the surrounding home counties and London. Whether it’s museums, outdoor spaces, crafts or fetes, you’ll find it here.
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.
Relatively little known amongst the great houses of England but boasting some truly breathtaking gardens, Wrest Park is tucked away in rural Bedfordshire, to the north of Luton. Managed by English Heritage, our visit coincided with their Georgian games event, one of a series of family friendly activities taking place over the summer holidays.
