Days Out

We love a good day out, exploring our local area and further afield.

Hopefully you’ll be able to find some inspiration for your own days out here – and if you’ve got suggestions of awesome family days out you think we should try, do let us know!

If you’re looking for something specific, pop it in the search bar on the right hand side or give me a shout on twitter and I’ll see if I can find it for you!

Of course if you’d like collaborate with us on a review do get in touch and we can talk this over.
 

Selfridges Ice Rink – A morning with Peppa Pig and Father Christmas!

Lasy Sunday we were lucky enough to go on a really fabulous and festive adventure! We were invited to visit The Ice Rink at Selfridges – what a treat!  Of course as ever we didn’t tell Ben and Chloe what we were doing or where we were going – just that we were “going on an adventure”!  The first thing that struck me on arrival was how glamorous a setting it was – lots of beautiful peachy coloured baubles and luxurious faux fur throws! I’m not really sure what I expected but this was utterly fabulous in comparison to the most functional “proper” ice rinks I’ve been to in the past!  No ice hockey here thanks! We were lucky enough to have arrived pretty early and we were able to change into our skates and get out onto the ice before there were too many people around – of course the downside…
