No Christmas is complete without a trip to the theatre to watch the panto and this year we can recommend an amazing show for you. St.Helens Theatre Royal will be showing Peter Pan from now until January 13th and it is most definitely a show not to be missed.   Over the last 12 months St. Helens has become one of, if now our all time, favourite theatre, especially when it comes to family entertainment.

This week I had the absolute pleasure of being invited to Inglewood Manor for one the most quintessential of English customs, afternoon tea, and I was delighted to be able to attend. I have wanted to visit Inglewood Manor for a long time but until now had never had the chance, so as you can imagine I was excited to get the opportunity to go and have a look around for myself. Inglewood Manor is perfectly […]

Things to do in Liverpool

Liverpool is one of my favourite cities because there is loads to see and do and there is always something new going on from Giant parades, to cultural festival,  and of course the Christmas markets. As well as having loads to see and do there are also lots of lovely hotels in Liverpool and with 3 train stations it’s easily accessible for a day trip or weekend break. If you are thinking of visiting Liverpool […]

Our first visit to VR-here Liverpool

November 27, 2018 admin 0

On Sunday we took the train over to Liverpool and enjoyed a lovely family day out. We started our day with a trip to VR-here Liverpool, which is located just outside of the city center in an industrial area but is within walking distance, even for little legs like those of the tiddler. We hadn’t told the boys where we were headed but as soon as they read the sign outside they were so excited […]

October 16, 2018 admin 0

Despite living here for the best part of 14 years we had never visited Spaceport or taken the ferry across the Mersey to Liverpool, although we had talked about doing it a few times, that is until this week when we combined both activities and had a fun filled, educational, family Sunday.   We headed over to Spaceport for 10 am when it opened, which I would recommend you do too if you decide to […]

Earlier this year we spent a week on a farm in Kirkby Stephen and had the best time, switching off from the world and enjoying precious family time. We had never been to this part of the country before as we usually venture more towards the Lake District we we were unsure what to do and where to go but we found some great places.

The Snowman Tour is coming your way this Christmas

September 7, 2018 admin 15

It might only be the first week of September but the boys are back at school and the weather has most definitely taken a turn for the worse here in the North West which means that is is absolutely fine to start thinking about Christmas, or at least I think it is.   Up until now the highlight of the Christmas preparations has always been about visiting the main man himself but this year as […]
