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.
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.
Two-year-old Tilly is obsessed with babies of all kinds so the opportunity to visit newborn lambs wasn’t an opportunity we were going to pass up. The Chiltern Open Air Museum is one of our local attractions and it’s something of a favourite. It feels rather understated, nestling in woodland down a rather minor road and with a sizeable site that makes even busy days feel relaxed. The museum is based around a collection of historic buildings that have been relocated to the museum site and offer an authentic insight into life from the past. Whereas last year Tilly’s ability to interact with the museum was limited, this visit revealed she’s of an age to get a huge amount from a visit.
