PEPPA PIG WORLD, HAMPSHIRE Rides reference their favourite


Tried & Tested I never thought a huge pink pig in


a red dress could bring such joy – until I had my son, aka the world’s biggest Peppa Pig fan. Arriving at Peppa Pig World


at Paultons Park near Romsey, Hampshire, my 20-month-old son Noah was in heaven. Geared towards children under seven, it’s the perfect destination for toddlers to meet Peppa and George, as well as Suzy Sheep and Mummy and Daddy Pig.


characters, so we soared to heady heights in Miss Rabbit’s Helicopter Flight and enjoyed a leisurely ride in Daddy Pig’s Car, complete with ‘speed camera’ to capture the action! There are no height restrictions on any rides except George’s Dinosaur Adventure, which requires riders to be at least 85cm.


As well as the seven themed rides – with two more opening in May – there is a fantastic water play


Tried & Tested WAR OF THE ROSES LIVE, WARWICK CASTLE


As avid fans of CBeebies’ Mike the Knight when they were small, my kids loved stepping back in time on a trip to Warwick Castle. After climbing the motte built by William the Conqueror for views of Stratford and the River Avon, we headed to the jousting arena for War of the Roses Live, a new show bringing to life the 30-year civil war between the Houses of York and Lancaster. This heart-pumping hour-long


Tried & Tested GAMES OF THRONES TOUR, BELFAST


Iceland, Croatia, Canada, Morocco and, er, Belfast? As filming locations for Game of Thrones go, the Northern Ireland capital might not sound like the most exotic, but this tour will liven up a city break for teenage fans and bemused parents alike. Given the show’s base at Titanic Studios in Belfast, the coast and countryside of Northern Ireland have doubled as Westeros many a time, spawning several unofficial


tours. So despite never having seen an episode, I embarked on a full-day trip to see what all the fuss was about. First came Cushendun and the


cave where Melisandre gave birth to the shadow assassin, then Ballintoy Harbour where Theon Greyjoy came back to Pyke Harbour, and the spooky Dark Hedges, the most recognisable spot from the series. If all that makes as little sense to parents as it did to me, fear not – these scenic spots are beautiful


enough to merit a visit without knowledge of the show, and any excuse to get testy teens on a tour of natural landmarks must be something to celebrate. A stop at the Giant’s Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede ropebridge is just the icing on the cake. Book it: A night at Belfast’s Europa Hotel and full-day Game of Thrones tour costs from £112 with Super Break. superbreak.co.uk/agents

performance featured stunt riding, sword fighting, soaring eagles, pyrotechnics and special effects, and the kids – aged seven and 11 – were enthralled as hooves thundered, lances splintered and blood was spilt. This show is not to be missed! We fitted in a few more activities


– archery, jester school and kestrel holding (which must be booked ahead) – then settled down for a medieval banquet before bed in a small but brilliantly themed


Knight’s Lodge. We couldn’t have been happier, and even squeezed in the maze, armour room and falconry display the next morning – ‘edutainment’ at its best! Book it: Wars of the Roses Live is daily in May half-term and summer holidays (and weekends in between) and costs £13 including castle entrance. A night in a Knight’s Lodge starts at £181, bookable through Holiday Extras. warwickcastlebreaks.com

area, so pack swimwear and towels. Noah ran screaming into Muddy Puddles to jump up and down just like Peppa. There’s also a soft play centre and musical instrument area, plus a dedicated baby care area for younger siblings. Book it: Entry to Paultons Park (including Peppa Pig World) is £34 for adults and children over a metre; smaller children free. paultonspark.co.uk
