Is there anything more Autumnal than wrapping up warm and going for a walk in the woods? Kicking up the leaves, hunting for mushrooms and stopping for a hot chocolate. There are so many beautiful woodlands in Bucks and Berkshire. In fact Burnham Beeches is one of the finest ancient woodland tracts in Britain.
October half term is always one of the most fun with so many themed events running! Whether you’re looking for Halloween days out or Autumnal fun I have you covered! From free events to big days out you will find plenty of ideas to fill the week.

The summer holidays are here! To help you keep the kids entertained without breaking the bank, here’s a handy guide of things to do. I’ve broken it down into different types of days out and I’ve included as many free options and discounts as I could find.
I will also be running giveaways for free family days out on my Instagram page throughout the summer holidays. Make sure you’re following @babyinbucks and have me saved as a favourite so you don’t miss out.
What else would you do when there’s a heat wave than head to the nearest splash park!! Here’s my roundup of splash parks, paddling pools and outdoor lidos. There are shockingly few in Bucks itself so I’ve included ones in Oxfordshire, Hertfordshire and Berkshire too.
Basildon Park is a beautiful National Trust property in Berkshire, near Reading. On first glance you might think there’s not much for the kids here, but let me show you what we discovered! When you first arrive there are a couple of ball trails near the entrance which the kids loved! But if you head up the hill to the woods there is a much bigger play trail to discover. They no longer advertise it because it isn’t maintained. It used to be called the Wild Play Trail and several parts of it still remain.
The musical trail at The Grove Hotel was one of our favourite lockdown discoveries and we’ve been so many times since! It’s fun, a perfect length for little legs and has the bonus of being a great spot for bluebells and wildflowers too.
