Pittville Park, Cheltenham: free things to do with kids in Gloucestershire

One of our favourite free things to do with kids in Cheltenham is a visit to Pittville Park.  It’s a place I went as a youngster and now I enjoy taking my own children too!  It’s only now as an adult that I realise quite how amazing this park is.  We live in Gloucester now and there’s nothing quite like it here.

Walking around Pittville Park with my children yesterday, I really noticed quite how beautiful it is.  I lived in the centre of Cheltenham town for just under 10 years from my late teens through to my mid-twenties and I definitely took the park for granted and never made the most of it.

Skenfrith Castle, National Trust

On Saturday it was Ben’s Dad’s 70th birthday.  We didn’t actually know it was his 70th, but we did know it was his birthday!  I did ask Ben how old his Dad was and he had no idea, so we had to ask.  For a treat, we picked up his Dad and wife and took them to explore 13th century Skenfrith Castle with us.

Stonehenge: my review of this ancient wonder of the world

Today was our four year wedding anniversary and we wanted to mark the occasion by doing something special, but also affordable. We’re saving the last of our spending money this month for U.K. Vegan Campout, so we’re very aware that every penny we spend right now is less spending money on amazing vegan junk food in a couple of weeks!

With full tanks of fuel we just needed an idea of where to go and that wasn’t hard as I was keen to tick another item off my 2019 bucket list and visit Stonehenge!

In this blog post I will share my honest review of Stonehenge and lots of photos.  Continue reading “Stonehenge: my review of this ancient wonder of the world”

Reasons to visit Liverpool
