15 free things to do in Windsor, Berkshire

We visit Windsor regularly, the town is steeped in history, is home to the Queen and offers some great events, places to eat, an awesome toy shop at Daniel Department Store and awesome sites to see. Whilst exploring the town over the years I’ve discovered there is loads you can do for free in the town. 1) Changing of the Guard this a formal ceremony that takes place at Windsor Castle on set days throughout the week. In warmer months this happens more regularly. You can see the soldiers marching from the barracks up to Windsor Castle with a marching band and it’s wonderful to see.

Walking and exploring the grounds at South Hill Park

We enjoy going for a walk around the South Hill Park nature trail in the woodland area which are made of of wooden and metal sculptures. The sculptures are animal themed eg bee, fox and dragonfly to mention a few. We have got a buggy round the woodland paths before but there are some steepish climbs with drops to the side and next time will opt to take the baby carrier. We also took the dog with us on our adventure. South Hill Park Nature Trail There are two large lakes at South Hill Park - the South Lake and the North Lake - this map will help you get your bearings and has a selection of walks marked on it. The lakes are a great place to feed the ducks and geese. There is plenty of open space for children to run and their are beautiful rose garden next to the main South Hill Park buil...

20 free and low cost ideas for the school holidays

It amazing that there is so much going on locally for the family in Berkshire during the holidays, it’s one of the reasons we enjoy living in the area, we love to get out and about, making memories and getting involved in the community. However, I feel it’s also important for us to have some downtime at home or be out in the fresh air with nature, whether in the garden, the park or woods plus it also helps financially if we can do some free or cheap activities as well. I also know that I need to have the school holiday days planned and structured as this seems to help ensure everyone is happy and busy throughout the holidays. Here are 20 ideas of free or low cost ideas for the holidays which I find useful. Do some baking Visit the library Photo challenge - eg. captu

Winter Walks in Berkshire and a warm drink

Walks are an important part of our families lives, we exercise the dog daily but also just enjoy being outdoors in the fresh air, away from the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives. A chance to get some air in the lungs, watch the wildlife, spend some quality time together and make memories. We enjoy winter walks, especially on crisp cold winter days but we equally enjoy jumping in muddy puddles on rainy ones. Us adults sometimes will also treat ourselves to a hot drink after or during a walk at weekends as a little treat, this idea has prompted this blog post. Here are a few walks in Berkshire and the surrounding area where you can walk and also grab a hot drink. Click the links for more information about each of the walks.

Chinese New Year, Maidenhead Celebrate – The Year of The Rat

A couple of years ago we experienced the Chinese New Year celebrations in Maidenhead which marked the Year of the Dog. The sun shone as the Chinese Dragons danced their way down the high street after starting the procession with firecrackers, drums and dancing. There was a great atmosphere in the town as the Chinese Dragons, a symbol of China, which are believed to bring good luck to people, made their way along the procession route - it was fantastic to watch. This year, 2020, marks The Year of the Rat and Maidenhead celebrate again on Saturday 25th January 2020, 1pm - 2pm. The Eagle Claw Kung Fu School UK will again perform their traditional dragon and lion dance. The dragon dance will make its way down Maidenhead High Street from The Boy and the Boat statue at the top of the High St...

Walking at Dorney Lake

Dorney Lake is a 2,200m purpose built lake owned and financed by Eton College, set in 400 acres of parkland. The land includes an arboretum and nature conservation area. The lake was made for and used in the 2012 Olympics and still has its Olympic rings on display today. The lake is situated in Dorney, Buckinghamshire not far from Eton and Windsor. The lake can be accessed by the public for walking. When we visited there were lots of walkers with their children who were on their bikes and scooters as the paths around the lake are flat, which is also great for buggies. During our walk at Dorney Lake we saw a swan, grebes and cormorants and it was wonderful to see the grebes diving up and down in the water fishing. Once you enter the Dorney Lake entrance, there is a public c...

A walk at Allens Field, South Ascot

On 23rd March 2019 we went for a family walk at Allens Field, South Ascot, having never been to the nature spot before. We went on a Saturday lunchtime and did not see anyone else walking there, so it was very peaceful and we were able to enjoy seeing our first bees of the year and two bright yellow moths / butterflies. You can take a 1.4 mile circular walk which takes approx. 20 – 30 minutes, around the site. Allens Field consists of woodland, wet woodland and grassland space. During our walk we just made up our own route to explore. There is a map in the car park to help guide you around the 9.5 hectare site. We enjoyed discovering the woodland paths but the best bit for us was discovering the beautiful wooden sculptures at the site. There is a little nature play area (see photo

AD // Gifted for Review – Beat That!

Thank you Gutter Games Ltd for gifting Berkshire Mummies Beat That! to review. We love a board game over the festive period and can’t wait to play this throughout the holidays. The game appealed as there is a chance to challenge yourself in ways that you might not necessarily do in everyday life. The game tests your understanding of your confidence levels verses your actual competence to achieve the set challenge. Who can play Beat That! The game is aimed at 11+ year olds. We don’t have children this age so played the games as a ‘date night’ whilst the little ones were in bed. However, we have since allowed our eldest to have a go at some of the challenges for fun, outside of the game setting with our help. Please note the box states the game is not suitable to anyone under 36 mon
