Places we would love to go :Bedfordshire/Buckinghamshire

 With Stuart booking the week off work at the beginning of February its got me thinking of places
we could go nearby to us in Bedfordshire.

We obviously can't afford to go out ever day somewhere .But its got me thinking of compiling a list of places we would love to go a doing a few when Stuart has the week off and then we can revert back to the list in the future if we want to go somewhere but can't decide where to go. 

So here is my list: 

Leighton Buzzard Railway 
This an ideal place if you love trains (which Blake seems to) and is the closest to us. 
I have been twice before, once which was with Blake when he was dinky. 
There is a approx 70 minute steam train return journey. Discover the fascinating history, dating back to the dark days of the First World War, and experience the vanished world of narrow-gauge light railways.

Rushmere County park (Heath and Reach)
I've been once before it's filled with big green spaces full of scenic footpaths and bridleways, which you can get maps around at the Heron's View Visitor Centre, also home to the Treetops Cafe .

Mead Open Farm (Billington) 
I really want to take Blake here as I have heard many good things
about the place and know a lot of my Mummy friends go here regularly.
Unfortunately there is no public transport that goes that way so if we do
go we will have to factor in paying for a taxi to get us there and back. 

Snakes and Ladders (Dunstable)
This is a fab soft play area!
We took Blake there for his first birthday and he loved it.
There is lots to do and food there is cheap too (just so you know) 

ZSL Whipsnade Zoo 
Another place that will be fab to take Blake where we have been before. 
I don't think we will go in February as when we last went we went in April and it was
pretty cold so this would be an ideal day out when the weather is much warmer. 

Tring Local History Museum
I've never been before I don't think Stuart has either 
but its sounds very interesting and is only a train ride away. 

Willen Lake and Park (Milton Keynes)
I've been here many times before as I grew up in Milton Keynes
and my Mum use to take me and my sister here all the time.
I think it will be great for Blake to experience it too in his buggy
whilst we walk around the lake. 

Gullivers Land (Milton Keynes)
I think Blake is a little too young at the moment but me and my sister use to go here as
a child too and loved it. So another place I want Blake to experience. 

Wendover Woods (Wendover)
We aren't too sure how accessible Wendover woods is to get to when you have to rely on public 
transport so we are going to have a look into and see if we would be able to get there. 
We love going for walks so this sounds fab. 

Stockwood Discovery Centre (Luton)
This place is again a place me and Stuart have be to before. 
It's very close to where we use to live when we briefly lived in Luton so we know where it
is and we enjoyed it last time so worth taking Blake. 

Safari MK Soft Play (Milton Keynes)
This a fairly new soft play in Milton Keynes and is close to near where my family live.
A place I definitely want to try out. 

I am leaving it at that for now.There are so many places we would love to go to nearby so
I definitely want to go out as a family a lot more, I think it will be even better in the summer.

Would you like to comment?

Wow, you have loads of fun things to do close to you. Love the sound of Rushmore Park, a lovely way to have an inexpensive fun day if the weather is good. Hope you have fun ticking these off your list :)

Some lovely places! Gullivers land looks awesome! Even if Blake is too young for some places it will still be nice to make memories and take pictures to show him when he's older x

Angela Milnes said...

I'd be interested in Gullivers Land as I saw an add for it not so long ago and it looked really fun!

Sally Akins said...

You've got a great selection of places to visit there! It's good to have some options ready for when you can take a day out together. When my boys were little I made a list of indoors places we could go when the weather was horrible ;-)

I've never really explored this area (I'm for Yorkshire and the husband is from Kent and now we live in Surrey) so this area has just been missed for days out. Sounds like there is a lit of fun things to do - my kids would love the zoo!

Life-As-Mum said...

That country park looks gorgeous! I love going places like that. Everywhere else sounds really good too x

Let's Talk Mommy said...

Aw you lucky thing! I only have about 2 things to do near me. You'll never run out of things to discover with all that on your doorstep!

Unknown said...

It looks like you have a lot of exciting places to visit close by. It will be interesting to see which of the attractions you decide to go to, please keep us updated!

There are so many wonderful parks and outdoor areas to explore. I hope you get the chance to see many of them!

What a great list. Looks like you will have lots of fun day trips coming up! Have fun xxx

Oooh that is a lovely list of things to do! We live in a very tourist driven area so lots of our local places are closed now, but we do have lots of beaches if it is dry! Kaz x

Zena's Suitcase said...

That's loads of ideas right there. I think you'll be having some amazing family time if you only get through half of it

Laura Black said...

Some fab places to visit! We hope to take a trip over to England soon and some of these places look like they would be great to stop off at! x

Unknown said...

The Open Farm sounds lovely! Great location for lots of day trips :)

Unknown said...

Sounds like you have lots of fab places to visit over the next year! Look forward to seeing where you head too x

Ah great to see a list that could benefit my little one and me! I've been to Mead open farm on a school trip and your right the unfortunate thing about it is that there is no public transport. They are opening some soft play and something similar to Bounce in the Galaxy in Luton which should be good :-) x

Unknown said...

That's a great list of things to do! Lamb would love the steam train and the zoo. We are so lucky to live 5 mins from an amazing zoo! X
