My daughter and three grandchildren are over from America and we looking for places to go. She thinks the peppapig theme park looks good. Has anyone been? Or do you have any recommendations? They are 8,6 and 2.

What area are we talking about bookdreamer

bookdreamer Sat 25-Jun-16 14:42:22

I live in Kettering but we are prepared to go anywhere that's worthwhile.

Never been but Gullivers World Milton Keynes isn't too far from you looks like it might be good.
Legoland at Windsor
Nene Valley Railway
London Zoo

Thanks. Have you heard about the peppapig park?

tanith Sat 25-Jun-16 14:59:16

No sorry its a long way from you though isn't it?

bookdreamer Sat 25-Jun-16 15:01:15

Yes it but my daughter doesn't seem to mind. And she'll be driving! Will be interesting to see if anyone has been. Just looked at gullivers world and it looks very good.

Of course there is always Warner Bros Harry Potter World at Watford we've been and its fantastic but might be a bit old for your grands..

Woburn safari park?

I've been to Peppa Pig World. Unfortunately, it bucketed down but, on the plus side, it was empty.

It took 3 hours to get there from SWales.

Legoland is probably more accessible. Hell on earth, but it's all about the littlies, innit?wink.

Drayton Manor?

What was peppapig like though? Did the children like it?

tanith Sat 25-Jun-16 17:14:41

Ooer! I forgot we went to Nottingham a few weeks ago and visited Sherwood Forest , we walked easily to the Major Oak where Robins supposed to of been and they have a lovely visitors centre with things for the children a nice restaurant we had a great day there. Or take a picnic and find a spot in the forest to eat.

gettingonabit Sat 25-Jun-16 17:23:15

book the children liked it, yes.

bookdreamer Sat 25-Jun-16 17:24:39

Thanks for that gettingonabit

Not particularly helpful, though! The park itself was nice, and there was something more Peppa -Pig-gy for the younger ones. I'd take a book, though. Glad I did.

Went to peppa pig 2 weeks ago. With GC 5 ,2 and 18 months it is excellent, very clean well done and GC loved it. The other half of the theme park is also excellent, more for the older children and adults to do, but the toddlers still had rides to go on. Google Paultons Park. We had 2 full days and we all had a great time .

The local Granset site for Leicestershire has some lovely things to do on it.
