Chester Zoo & Blackpool Tower Bus Trip with National Holidays


Disclosure - we paid for a different National Holidays trip a while ago and didn't have the best time (you can read about it here). National Holidays invited us back as an apology and for the opportunity to give them another chance. I originally paid as a normal customer and was not asked to write this blog post. 

Chester Zoo & Blackpool Tower Bus Trip with National Holidays - A Review

National Holidays offer coach trips throughout Europe. There are lots of different options including city breaks, theatre breaks, guided tours, trips to top UK attractions and more.

There's no denying they are hassle-free and a convenient way to travel, especially if you don't drive. We booked the Chester Zoo and Blackpool Tower Trip in October - our party was made up of myself, my mam, Heidi (10) and Jack (8).

The cost of this trip is usually £99 per adult and £89 per child inclusive of return coach travel and transport throughout, entry to Chester Zoo and the Blackpool Tower Eye (or alternative), a 3-course evening meal, overnight accommodation and breakfast.

Because so much is included and we took packed lunches for breakfast & lunch plus our own snacks, we hardly spent any money across the weekend so I would say trips with National Holidays are a brilliant option if you're on a budget.

Shakespeare for Tweens with RSC at Northern Stage

Disclosure - We have a mix of press and paid-for tickets to see this show

I struggle with Shakespeare sometimes - the language is often alien to me and if it's not a popular play, I struggle to follow what's going on at times. I don't think there's any shame in saying this. I also think this puts a lot of people off going to see Shakespeare and I can understand why.

Sunderland Festival of Light


The Festival of Light in Sunderland is moving to a brand new venue this year. Instead of the usual Roker Park, the new venue of Mowbray Park in the city centre (it's right next to Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens) will host this month-long festival.

Fontburn Reservoir | Family Walk & Play Park

I'm always looking out for new family walks to try and if they have a play park - even better. Fontburn has been on my list for ages. They received a new play area in 2018 and I'm annoyed that it's taken me so long to get here. We visited on a blustery Saturday afternoon in September and practically had the place to ourselves. 


Fontburn is near Rothbury in Northumberland and honestly feels as if it's in the middle of nowhere.

10+ Easy Coastal Walks in North East England (less than 2 hours long)

A walk along the coast is a brilliant activity to enjoy with the family at any time of the year. Nothing beats a good dose of sea air. We're spoilt for choice when it comes to coastal walks in North East England and I thought I'd share some of our favourite easier walks by the sea. They're all less than 2 hours long (round trip) and most are pushchair and dog-friendly too.
