Last year for our big Christmas day out we chose to go to The Magical Christmas Adventure at 4 Kingdoms Adventure & Farm Park. I chose this one as I loved the sound of the immersive journey through loads of themed rooms and the photos from previous years looked amazing! It also had great reviews and whilst still expensive it was nowhere near the price tag of Lapland UK. Here’s what we thought of it.

West Midland Safari Park completely surpassed our expectations today, we had such a brilliant time! The Park in Worcestershire is home to a four mile long drive-through safari which was the highlight for us. Many of the animals on the safari are free to roam right up to your car and they do! We were feeding giraffes through the window, had rhino’s in touching distance of our car and lions walking next to us.
This isn’t all that’s at West Midland Safari Park though. You’ll also find the largest animatronic dinosaur exhibit in the UK, a theme park and many more animals to see and feed on foot.
Here’s a roundup of some of the best things during October half term and Halloween in Buckinghamshire and surrounding areas. Keep checking back as I have more to add to this list.
Today we visited a real hidden gem, Connexions Cafe in Princes Risborough. The cafe in Elim Church opened just 4 months ago having undergone a refurbishment. They’ve added a lovely kids play area and brunch menu to the modern looking café.
If you’re looking for a lovely cafe to visit where you can sit and enjoy a hot coffee whilst your toddler and baby both play then this is the place for you! The Watercolour Arts & Play Cafe in Henley is a lovely cafe with a great little play area for children up to 6 years old upstairs and a baby play area downstairs. They also run lots of kids classes there and most of them are free!
PYO Pumpkin fields have become really popular, with more popping up every year. Have a look through this guide to find one to visit with your little ones this year. My tip for you is to go earlier rather than later. When you go early you’ll have a huge choice of pumpkins and get some great photos. If you leave it to go closer to Halloween then you’ll likely be faced with fairly sparse looking fields and barns. Pumpkins last for ages if stored properly and will easily last for at least a month.
Whether you’re looking to meet Santa in a Christmas Grotto, at brunch or on a train this guide is for you. I’ve tried to include as many options as I could find and something to suit every budget, including several free options! I’ve included a from price for all of them so you can get a rough idea of price, but please bear in mind that a lot of them increase in price the closer you get to Christmas so click through to their website for exact prices.
There are so many amazing events on this Christmas, so take a look…

Brasserie Blanc in Beaconsfield is one of our favourite local restaurants for a family friendly meal. We love going out for dinner as a family but it’s really only fun if we get the restaurant right! With Ashley being a mega fussy eater a good kids menu is always a priority. There are lots of other things that Brasserie Blanc do to keep you little ones happy too.
Here’s a roundup of some of the best things on this September in Buckinghamshire and nearby.
