Over the Easter Holidays we had a lovely mini break in London. It was fab to have a really good explore and a lovely way for me to relax after all the goings on at home! We only had one real plan for our break and that was a trip to Shrek’s Adventure.
We had visited Shrek once before over Christmas and had a wonderful time. On one hand I was very excited to be returning, on the other I was worried that as we had visited once and it was no longer a surprise, that it might not be as good a second time round.
As you all know the Easter break was a bit of a mixed bag for me, swapping form fun days out with the kid to funerals. What kept me going was the knowledge that we had a mini break in London booked, a stress free break with no driving and lots of fun.
We love Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure, it always makes for a fabulous day out. I write about all the reasons we love it recently, you check that out here. As we’re currently in the middle of the Easter break it was on our list of places to visit, especially as they have added loads of extra egg-cellent activities for the holidays.
One of Norfolk’s leading attractions, Amazona Zoo in Cromer, offers a unique Easter day out where families can explore and learn about a varied and fascinating selection of animals native to South America.
Come along to the Zoo on Easter Sunday and each child will receive a free cream egg!
Over the weekend we headed to Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure Park for some family fun. It’s nice and close to us and we try to visit at least once a year, so on a cold and blustery Saturday, after two days cooped up n the house feeling unwell, it was the perfect destination.
When it comes to days out with the kids in Norfolk Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure Park is a classic, it is jam packed full of things to do for all ages and all weathers. It’s also changing and growing which is lovely to see. I used to visit as a child when we stayed with family in Norfolk over our Summer Holidays and it is lovely to take L now and see some of the same dinosaurs I used to love whilst enjoying all the lovely new facilities. It will always have a soft spot in my heart and I feel I need to disclose that more than the fact we were gifted our tickets at the weekend!
We visit the Sea Life Centre at Hunstanton about once a year or so. We enjoy a visit to Hunstanton but it is a bit of a drive for us, so don’t go often, but adding a visit to the Sea Life centre makes it a great day out.
If you are like me then you’ll want to be getting outdoors whatever the weather. However, this time of year, when it’s cold, wet and windy it can be hard to find the enthusiasm for it. Harder still to get the rest of the family on board. That’s one of the many reasons we love Treasure Trails, how better to persuade a five year old out of the warm and into the cold than becoming super spies for the day, spies with a mission to solve.
