The London Transport Museum Acton Depot only opens for three Open Weekends per year. The Museum Depot at Acton is a huge warehouse that holds the majority of the Museum’s collection which is not on display at the main Museum in Covent Garden. The Depot houses over 320,000 items of all types, including many original works of art used for the Museum’s celebrated poster collection, signs, models, photographs, engineering drawings, uniforms and of course lots of different vehicles from throughout the ages. Sounds perfect for transport geeks, but is it any fun for a three year old? We went along to the Acton Depot Open Weekend: Family Fun to find out…

Glamping at Camping Aichelberg, Germany

Glamping at Camping Aichelberg

‘I need a cup of tea’, demands Daddy. Very British. ‘No problem, there’s a kettle here’, says I. Pause… ‘Er, um, I don’t seem to be able to find a kettle. I’m sure there was one in the picture when I booked’. I trundle off to the reception to do a fabulous mime of a kettle whilst wittering on about ‘heißes Wasser’.

3 Things to do in Rotterdam with a Toddler on a Monday

3 things to do in Rotterdam with a Toddler

There are lots of great things to do with a toddler in Rotterdam. But not on a Monday. It seems that almost every museum is shut. Which is a shame because the Maritime Museum has a great play area. It is marketed at 4 to 8 year olds, but it was perfect for my toddler. The only drawback is the entry fee. Although the under 4s are free, at 12.50 euros per adult the entry fee is quite expensive compared to other maritime museums in London and Bilbao. Especially as you only tend to spend a couple of hours in such places. Anyway, here are the 3 things to do in Rotterdam with a toddler on a Monday that I found…

Eureka! Science Museum in San Sebastián

Eureka! Science Museum in San Sebastian

We had a great time at the Eureka! Science Museum in San Sebastián. So good in fact that I largely forgot to take any photos – apologies! There are lots of exhibits to keep all ages entertained, including our toddler. And in common with many European museums that I visit, it was practically deserted. I know it is a good thing that so many museums in London are freely accessible to all. But it doesn’t half make them busy by comparison.

The Aquarium in San Sebastian

The Aquarium in San Sebastian

It is almost inevitable that when on holiday with a toddler, you will end up in an aquarium. You have a couple of hours to kill, perhaps the weather isn’t great, there’s not much else that is toddler-friendly… So on our recent weekend break we of course visited the aquarium in San Sebastian.
