Portsmouth and the surrounding area has some fantastic attractions for those interested in naval history. We recently had the opportunity to visit the Royal Navy Submarine Museum in Gosport and Spinnaker Tower. Read on to find out how we got on.
Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park was home to the unforgettable 2012 Olympics and Paralympics. We visited the Paralympics and had an amazing time watching athletics, wheelchair basketball and wheelchair tennis; that day will stay with me forever!
A perfect spring day calls for a spring like visit, which must of course include lambs! We’ve visited Bucklebury Farm Park several times before and always enjoyed our visit so decided to venture out to see their newborn animals.
As the kids have got older we’ve been able to try more adventurous activities as a family. One of these was a trip to Reading climbing wall, which we decided upon after we saw an offer on Groupon.
I love snowdrops as they’re a sign that spring is nearly here. This weekend we saw oodles of them when we visited Welford Park in Berkshire to see their snowdrop displays.
*Update: the REME museum near Wokingham relocated in April 2015 and is now based in Lyneham, Wiltshire.*
We recently visited REME (Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers) museum, which is attached to Arborfield Garrison near Wokingham. REME are responsible for maintaining electrical and mechanical equipment in the British army, this includes everything from tanks and helicopters to dental tools. Whilst this might not sound the most exciting topic for kids the stand out feature for me was how family friendly they’ve made the museum.
