    Top 7 Things to do along the M62 Corridor this Summer

    The summer holidays have landed… I’m only just starting week three and already pulling my hair out thinking of what to do with the kids. I’ve been researching a bit and recounting some previous great days out, so thought I’d share with you the top seven places I intend to visit over the next few weeks. Driving too long with my two can be a trauma at times so I’ve looked for simple routes, all along the M62… starting East and moving over to the West (and all places I can get to before Toy Story 2 finishes and all hell breaks loose). #1 The Deep- Hull I really love…

    Cheshire Ice Cream Farm

    Have you noticed when something has been specifically designed for children, its always accompanied by a high price tag?

    LIVERPOOL’S TERRACOTTA ARMY EXHIBITION

    If you fancy yourself as a bit of a history buff or would like a day trip out with an educational twist for the kids, then this is the place for you – The Terracotta Army Exhibition at The Liverpool Museum. The exhibition showcases never seen before in the UK, artifacts excavated from Emperor Quin Shi Huang burial ground – The First Emperor of China. We arrived with a pram loaded with coats, brollies, baby bags, an eight-month old baby and toddler in tow. The usual family day dressage. It’s a fantastic exhibition and quite sizable too, taking at least one and half hours to get around. So, if you’re…
