We needed to head up to North Somerset. So we thought let’s turn it into a family day out. Tricky in winter though as many attractions shut. But wildlife venues are always a good year round bet. So we headed to Tropiquaria near Watchet.
Restoring the Wellington Monument in the Blackdown Hills, Somerset is an ongoing project. Unfortunately scaffolding currently covers the monument itself. However, its surroundings still make for a pleasant family walk. The National Trust manage the site, so take a look on their website to see what the monument looks like. I am excited that the restoration includes a plan for a viewing platform. Hopefully there will be some great views from there.

We found visiting Willows Activity Farm a fun experience for a toddler. It is not the cheapest day out, but we found it very well organised (you get what you pay for and all that…). Willows Activity Farm is near St Albans in Hertfordshire, just off junction 22 of the M25. The entrance fee includes the kid’s farm, all shows, fun fair rides, a tractor ride, huge outdoor and indoor play areas, including the Peter Rabbit Adventure Playground. They hold different activities throughout the year, depending on the season. We visited in December, so there was of course a Christmas theme, including a visit to Santa.

A toddler’s visit to Shepreth Wildlife Park would be straightforward. But our demands were a little more complex. It is an increasing challenge to find venues for multi-generational days out. Especially as the toddler increasingly just wants to run about. Shepreth Wildlife Park appeared to tick lots of the boxes. Something for the toddler to do, wheelchair accessible for great granny, drivable to from Cambridge, on the train line from London, has a cafe for lunch…
