Silverstone Lap of Lights 2021

With last year being as rubbish as it was when it came to festive celebrations and general joy, we were super excited to visit the entirely Covid Safe experience offered by Silverstone and the amazing Lap of Lights. It surpassed all expectations and we had the best time. This year with everything looking a bit cheerier and restrictions not being as harsh we were delighted to go back and see what was on offer for 2021.

Summer Fun at Pensthorpe

Always one of our favourite days out we headed to Pensthorpe Natural Park at the weekend to check out what they were up to this summer.

We started our trip with a visit to Hootz House indoor play, but upon setting foot inside L decided he’d rather be out in the sunshine. Fair enough! So we spent the first hour playing outdoors and making the most of all the play equipment on offer. It was a lot quieter in the morning than when we walked through later in the day so that’s worth remembering.

Amazona Zoo & Football Golf

Yesterday we headed to Amazona Zoo in Cromer to spend a fun summer day with friends. As well as seeing all the animals and having lots of fun in the play area we also ventured across the carpark for a round of Football Golf. 

It’s safe to say the kids had a blast. Whilst at the zoo they spent most of their time on the play area. With the one a system that is currently in place the free flow nature of the zoo has been lost and a few quite significant areas have been cordoned off, which for a small zoo was a big deal. This meant that once they were at the play area they were reluctant to leave as they were aware it wouldn’t be so easy to get back to. It didn’t stop the fun though.
