We are approaching the last full day of our holiday in the UK last week. It was all about animals this time. A few bloggers in a group suggested to go to West Midland Safari Park. I checked out their website beforehand and it looked really good. It’s something different other than the average zoo. I knew Matthew would enjoy it having the animals so close to him. So I booked four tickets in advanced on their website.
We are into day four of our holidays from last week in England. That morning we planned to get up early enough to make our way to Paulton Park.Ideally we wanted to be on the road by 10am. We actually managed to follow our plans and left shortly before ten. There was not much to pack anyway other than nappies, wipes, snack and our tickets.
It is day three of our adventures. Time to look back on the day what we did and share with you our day of fun. This was in fact Good Friday. With it being Easter, I couldn’t resist but buying tickets to go to Cadbury World. It was only a 40 minutes drive from the hotel which was so close. It’s driving around Birmingham on the motorway and you are basically there in no time. To enter Cadbury World, you do need to book your tickets in advanced. There are self-guided tours every ten minutes. It was sold out very fast but we managed to get a slot for 3pm.
Day two of our holiday was a whole day in Drayton Manor Park. I would really advice to buy the tickets in advanced because you can save so much. An adult ticket on the day at the park is £39 whereas when you pay online it’s only £25. For kids from four years it’s £20 and on the day it would be £29. We did experience both ways because on our last day Matthew really wanted to go to Thomasland with daddy again which meant he had to pay the full price.
Now that we are back from our five days break in the UK, I thought I’d share with you our adventures. Five days (it’s really four full days we had, the rest was traveling) is pretty long for one blog post so I was thinking it would be best to break it down into a few small ones rather than a huge long one. Nobody wants to read that.
