Have you ever fancied a career as a fighter pilot? If so, I’ve found the perfect place to visit. There aren’t many places in the world where you can imagine yourself in Top Gun but Boscombe Down Aviation Collection in Wiltshire is one of them. Oh, and the kids will probably enjoy it too!
We live relatively near to Stratford-upon-Avon but I’ve never felt the need to follow the Shakespeare tourist trail. If this is your kind of thing I can assure you there’s plenty to keep you entertained in the town. But it doesn’t float our family boat. Instead we spent some time exploring Stratford’s alternative attractions.
Earlier this year I took the kids to Bletchley Park, home of the famous code breakers. I loved the visit, primarily for its sense of atmosphere and untold secret history. Yet whilst my kids enjoyed it, I couldn’t help but feel that a lot of the explanations and exhibits went over their heads.
It has taken a while to write but this is my final post about our holiday in the Haute-Loire region of central France. I’ve already reviewed our CosyCamp lodgings and written a round up of things to do in the Haute-Loire but felt the town of Le Puy deserved a post of its own.
Our summer holiday was spent camping in the Haute-Loire region of central France (read our CosyCamp review). Named after the river that flows through it, the area is predominately rural with lots of small farms, meadows, cattle and forests.
Crocodiles of the World is the only crocodile zoo in the UK and is run by enthusiast Shaun Foggett. Originally opened in 2011 it recently moved to larger premises so it seemed the ideal time to pay a visit.
