Visiting Aldershot Lido

Visiting Aldershot Lido

We love visiting Aldershot Lido but haven't been since before the global pandemic and look forward to returning soon. It's a fun place to spend a day, especially on a sunny hot day. What's at the Lido At the lido there is a large pool plus another section of the pool for lane swimming. There are 2 slides and a driving board (open subject to availability) plus changing rooms, a cafe and plenty of room to ‘set up camp’ around the pool area.  How much is the lido and do I need to book?

AD – Gifted Tickets // Review – Maidenhead Mini-Golf

We were delighted to be invited to Maidenhead Mini-Golf to have a go on their brand new 18 hole, dinosaur themed, mini-golf course and were thrilled it was dry and sunny after a very wet week! It was a perfect way to enjoy a Friday Half Term afternoon. We received a very warm welcome, were given size appropriate golf clubs and picked a different coloured ball each, had a quick safety briefing and headed out onto the course. The mini-golf course was busy which was great to see, but the rounds flowed nicely with us only having to wait for…

A visit to the Museum of Berkshire Aviation

A visit to the Museum of Berkshire Aviation

At the beginning of 2020 before Covid-19 was part of our day to day lives we took a visit to the Museum of Berkshire Aviation. Our eldest and my husband both love aeroplanes and helicopters so when we saw the Museum of Berkshire Aviation recommended on a local Facebook group we decided to go and have a look. What's at the Museum? The museum isn’t huge and is based at the historic site of Woodley Airfield, near Reading - once the centre of a thriving aircraft industry. The museum is crammed full of aircraft of all different shapes and sizes…

All Aboard at Pinewood (Wokingham) Miniature Railway

All Aboard at Pinewood (Wokingham) Miniature Railway

*This post was written pre-covid. Keep an eye on the miniature railway webpage for updates of when the railway may re-open. We visited the Pinewood Miniature Railway situated between Wokingham and Crowthorne on 15th April 2018. It’s certainly popular and we queued for about 15 minutes for a ride on one of the miniature trains. There were about 4 trains in operation so the queue kept moving all the time. Whilst waiting it was great fun just watching the trains (a mixture of electric and steam) leaving and returning to the station and it meant that my little one didn’t…
