Our Roadmap Out of lockdown

You’re off to great places, Today is your day

Here is where I’m going to collate all of our outings as we head out and about after a year of lockdown. We like exploring and so will continue share our experiences as we re-visit some of our most favourite local attractions and then venture further afield. We will share our feelings about value for money, and the facilities from car parking post codes to toilets and of course ice cream availability. I’ll also be able to share any changes we experience in this “new normal” which might give you a heads up if you’re planning an adventure of your own. After the last twelve months being stuck indoors we are determined to make the most of this summer and never take the small things for granted again.

  • Returning to the West Midlands Safari Park
    Every day for the last three months Arlo has been asking to go to the Safari park – as annual pass holders we would visit regularly prior to lockdown and it’s quite literally one of his most favourite places to visit and so of course it had to be the first place we went to […]
  • The Botanical Gardens
    Now that spring has finally made an appearance there’s an abundance of colour bursting in to life at the Botanical Gardens. We have been visiting the gardens since the 1980’s when I was a little girl so trips to the gardens are always nostalgic for me. There’s some areas of the gardens which remain unchanged […]
  • Cycling at Kingsbury Water Park
    We had a wonderful afternoon at Kingsbury Water Park, we opted to hire bicycles to make sure we could see as much of the space as possible – and with fifteen different lakes and 600 acres to explore we will most certainly be coming back again. The best bit about Kingsbury for Arlo was the […]
