… keep it quite but there’s a beach we go to quite often that’s usually very quiet or deserted except for the three of us – this last visit was in the Easter holidays and we had it all to ourselves, well apart from the seagulls. Granted you wouldn’t be able to swim there without grazing your knees, but there’s sand, rockpools and fossils galore. Clue – it’s somewhere in Wales!

Day Trip

We got a little squished in the Natural History Museum but did fight through the crowds to see the whale at my sons insistence then spent a blissful few hours in the V & A (one of the best museums in the world, I’m sure) Throw in a stroll through Hyde Park either end and voila, a lovely day out.V&Anatural history museumV&A
