AD Review // Guided Tour with Canoe and Kayak Adventures in Windsor

AD Review // Guided Tour with Canoe and Kayak Adventures in Windsor

Disclaimer: This blog post is written in Paid Partnership with Canoe and Kayak Adventures in Windsor. Views of our gifted Guided Kayaking Tour are honest and those of Berkshire Mummies. We were kindly invited to go on a guided canoeing tour along the River Thames at Windsor with Canoe and Kayak Adventures and what a wonderful and memorable experience it was. Lockdown had ended and outdoor water sports were allowed to open again, after months of being at home it felt so refreshing to be out somewhere different, making memories in one of our favourite Berkshire towns, in a covid safe…

Visiting Runnymede Pleasure Grounds

Visiting Runnymede Pleasure Grounds

Runnymede is known for it's connections to the Magna Carta and is situated in Egham, Surrey on the outskirts of Windsor, Berkshire. There is lots to see and do whilst visiting Runnymede Pleasure Grounds. It's a great place to visit with the family. You can take a stroll alongside the River Thames with plenty of opportunity to watch the wildlife and boats. From the car park, if you walk with the play area on your right, head toward the river. Then turn right, walking past the boat club, you can then follow the tow path to Bell Weir Lock. The…

A visit to The Nature Discovery Centre

A visit to The Nature Discovery Centre

I recently went for a walk and visit to The Nature Discovery Centre in Thatcham and have to say I was really impressed with the Wildlife Trusts site. I went mid-week, during term time and met my parents for a social distanced walk and picnic. The weather was a mixture of sunshine and showers which was kind to us during our picnic. It’s a lovely family friendly destination and I look forward to going back with my husband and the kids soon.  What is at the Nature Discovery Centre? The Nature Discovery Centre is made up of a series of…

A visit to Aldermaston Wharf

A visit to Aldermaston Wharf

We took a visit to Aldermaston Wharf, which is home to part of the Kennet and Avon Canal and just 1.5 miles away from Aldermaston in West Berkshire. What did we see and do at Aldermaston Wharf? After parking the car (details below), we went straight to find the canal. From the car park we walked through the grounds of the quaint Aldermaston Tea Rooms garden which had a one way system from the car park. Then we were immediately on the canal.  Aldermaston Tea Room First of all we turned right and walked up to the electric lifting bridge…

Places to feed the Ducks in Berkshire

Places to feed the Ducks in Berkshire

One of our favourite post-lockdown activities has been feeding the ducks, geese and swans. It’s a great activity to do with our youngest who can now get involved and my eldest enjoys the activity too. It’s cheap, outdoors and we tend to feed the ducks whilst also on a walk. So I have decided to compile a list of places to feed the ducks in Berkshire and the surrounding areas. Where can I go to feed the ducks, geese and swans? California Country Park, Wokingham has a large lake where you can feed the birds. There is also a cafe…

AD – Review // A Goring Gap Wildlife Walk

AD – Review // A Goring Gap Wildlife Walk

Disclaimer: Berkshire Mummies was gifted this experience in exchange for a honest review. We had the fantastic opportunity one sunny Monday morning in July 2020 to go on a Goring Gap Wildlife Walk with our guide Steve. This is a business which has been born out of lockdown and for us it was great chance to explore a part of the Thames Path we had not walked along before. How do the Goring Gap Wildlife Walks work? A few days before going on the family walk, Goring Gap Wildlife Walks sent me an email confirming our walk, time, where to…

Walking at Buckler’s Forest, Crowthorne

Walking at Buckler’s Forest, Crowthorne

Last week, during the week we went Walking at Buckler's Forest, Crowthorne. The walk is adjacent to a new housing estate, Buckler's Park which is still being built and covers 100 acres of forest, grasslands, heathland and ponds. The site was once the former Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) and on your walk you may see some existing features of the research site including the fire tower. The area to walk in felt vast with all the ponds and tall forest trees. There are a number of different set paths you could take and from the car park there were information…

Walking at Bramshot Farm Country Park, Fleet

Walking at Bramshot Farm Country Park, Fleet

We went walking at Bramshot Farm Country Park, Fleet, which, I know isn't in Berkshire but was worth the drive. The walk is about 13.5 miles away from Bracknell (approx 19 minutes drive on a good traffic day according to google!). We went on an overcast Friday afternoon. There were about 15 cars in the car park and it was nice and quiet with plenty of room for everyone. I suspect on sunnier days and weekends it will be busier. What impressed me the most about Bramshot Country Park is how well managed and maintained the 91 acres site was.…

Visiting Mill Meadows, Henley-on-Thames

Visiting Mill Meadows, Henley-on-Thames

Despite being in Oxfordshire, Henley-on-Thames is just over the Berkshire boarder (approx 25 minutes / 30 minutes from Reading / Maidenhead) and worth a visit. It's not only a quaint town to visit but you can have some great walks along the river watching the boats and wildlife. We enjoy visiting Mill Meadows, Henley-on-Thames, its one of our favourite parts of the town. In terms of walking we generally head back from Mill Meadows towards the town for a walk, if we want a short walk we turn back at the bridge, by The Angel on the Bridge pub (this…
