When we go away, whether that be for a week or a night, we like to eat out and treat ourselves a bit. Somewhere we have really enjoyed previously in other countries is Planet Hollywood but neither of us had ever been to the one in London. We had a Buy A Gift voucher for a Two Course Meal for Two with Drinks at Planet Hollywood so this was the perfect time to use it. Using the voucher was really simple. After it was delivered I went on to the Buy A Gift website where I could find the restaurant’s phone number
One of my absolute favourite places to visit is the zoo and luckily, John and Erin love them just as much as I do. Just over a week ago it was John’s birthday and we went away to London for the night using a Buy A Gift Voucher for a hotel stay. We needed something to do while we were there though so we decided that London Zoo was the way to go. Using Buy A Gift again, we chose the Entry To ZSL Zoo For 2 Adults experience which costs £48.60. If we had bought tickets on the day to the
AD | We were guests of Greater Anglia and SEA LIFE London Aquarium for the purpose of this post. All opinions are our own. As a family we don’t always get to spend the most time together. John works 6 days a week at least 2 weeks of the month and Erin is often asleep even before he gets home. Life tends to get in the way a lot of the time but Greater Anglia gave us the opportunity to have a fun packed day out together as part of their #railadventure campaign. When it came time to decide where we
Over the years John and I have been to London quite a few times. Last year we went at least 4 or 5 times. Even though Erin is only 2 we want her to experience different places in the UK, especially cities as diverse as London. We only have one trip planned this year for a day before we go on holiday in April but we have a lifetime to see as many things as possible. So, with that, I wanted to talk a bit about some of the things I want to do in London on our next few
Now that Erin is nearly 2 and running around all over the place going away with her is not nearly as easy as it used to be. She used to be quite happy sitting in her pushchair wherever we went and wouldn’t be too bothered about getting out. However, now she wants to be out all of the time and gets really frustrated if she’s confined for too long. Visiting London means Erin has to stay in her pushchair while we’re going from place to place on the tube and again if we’re in shops etc. John and I have
We have been to London quite a few times this year and have always been mega busy with either pre-booked activities or other plans I have made! The last time we went we were there for 4 days and 3 nights meaning we had quite a lot of time to fill. London can be very expensive though with meals out for all of that time as well as the accommodation and travel costs both to get there and on the tube. Recently, I have been trying to find more and more free or super cheap things to do in London
Having been to a couple of other Hard Rock Cafe restaurants elsewhere (Rome and Orlando) John and I thought it was a bit strange that we’d never been to Hard Rock Cafe London. We were in London a couple of weeks ago so we had the perfect opportunity! We arrived at close to 12pm when we thought the restaurant would be packed. Although it was getting busy there wasn’t a wait for a table and we had plenty of choice of where we could sit. We were seated quite close to the toilet and baby changing which was perfect as
John and I got married in Florida in 2013. While we were there we went to Ripley’s Believe It Or Not and it was so much fun. We recently had the opportunity to visit Ripley’s London and we couldn’t wait! Ripley’s London can be found smack bang in the middle of Piccadilly Circus. When we arrived Erin had just fallen asleep! Typical and very bad timing. However, we were heading home that day so we couldn’t wait for her to wake up and it’s a good job we didn’t as she ended up sleeping through our whole visit to Ripley’s!
