Family Days Out: The Roald Dahl Museum

We were recently invited along to the Roald Dahl Museum in Buckinghamshire and what fun we had!

The exterior of the Roald Dahl Museum

We took along 6 children and they all thoroughly enjoyed the day.


The Roald Dahl museum have three interactive galleries:

The Boy gallery which is all about Roald’s childhood.

The Solo gallery where you learn all about his adult life including his RAF career and you get to visit his writing hut.

The Story Centre where you get the chance to be creative.

They loved sitting in Roald Dahl ‘s chair at his actual writing table, imagining what it must have been like to come up with all those ideas!


They loved finding out the facts they didn’t know about him during the quiz!

Our friends said:

Jack constructed his own story on a special board; they loved looking at themselves through a mirror to see what would look like with a beard!! It’s all very well done.

The children said:

“Wow – I’m really sitting in Roald Dahl’s chair – I feel inspired to write a story” (Ellie age 11)

“I love the fact that I can create my own movies this is so fun!” (Jack aged 7)

“solo is so fun I am looking at Roald Dahl`s writing den there is a random golfball on a string! What is that for?” (Ellie Aged 11)

“I love creating these funny faces for the story ideas book!” (Jack aged 7)

We found the museum clean, tidy with informative small rooms crammed with memorabilia and facts!

A must visit for lovers of his books and for parents keen to inspire their kids!

Penguins of Madagascar at Chessington World of Adventure

We were kindly invited to Chessington World of Adventure to review the new Penguins of Madagascar.

We absolutely loved the new rooms that were on offer. It was really nice as we could see the fab playground from our room. We really enjoyed it.

First we had a great show in the hotel showing us some groovy moves and meeting the Penguins which we thought was fun! We also loved the penguin made of ice.

Following this we went and watched the new show which was very cheesy! We loved the new show which the kids thought was very funny! It is a great place where you get to see lots of groovy moves and I look forward to going back again!

Chessington World of Adventure

The children loved the rides especially the roller coaster.


You can find full details on the year of the Penguin at Chessington World of Adventures on their website.

There is still time to book for the Easter Holidays and they have some great offers on.
