The Tudor town of Warwick is one of the most charming areas of the UK to visit with your family. Sitting ever-so quaintly against the River Avon, Warwick is just a few miles away from the history-steeped medieval town, Stratford-upon-Avon.
As parents, we want to give our children the world, and at Christmas, this is all too apparent. However, the pile of gifts sitting under the Christmas tree come Christmas morning is wonderful, but will they remember these in years to come. This Christmas switch your focus to creating magical family memories with a trip to one of the Merlin attractions to enjoy the festivities.
As a family, we like to mix up our family adventures. Between theme parks, animal parks and more educational (yet fun) trips. Warwick Castle is a happy blend of education and fun for all the family. We visited a couple of years ago when I was pregnant with Piglet so it was lovely to plan another trip over as a complete family.
In typical British fashion, the weather was slightly against us with the rain starting as we got about an hour away. Not to be put off we donned our Joules coats and we were right as rain. After all, there is no such thing as bad weather just bad clothing (or so the saying goes).
Our last visit to Warwick Castle was when I was pregnant with Piglet, now she is about to celebrate her second birthday. Despite the weather, we were right as rain in our Joules coats and ready to explore the horrible histories maze alongside Warwick Castle itself.
I seem to be playing catch up all the time at the moment. That juggling act of running myself down versus letting people down. Any thoughts of being organised etc. are firmly on hold. From constant illness that is sweeping through our house, which I wish quite frankly would do one. To family life feeling especially hectic with birthdays, activities and school events. I can’t even console myself that it will get better in the next few weeks as we are now in the run up to Christmas.
This summer the Boo Roo and Tigger Too household are looking to visit some of the major UK attractions. The trouble with visiting these attractions is the cost of entry, a family of four can around £100 depending on the attraction
