Theo and I were invited to Windsor last weekend to experience the city’s many cultural attractions.
Since we are trying to get more involved in culture and stuff we jumped at the opportunity to spend a couple of days exploring the range of kid friendly attractions at Windsors many museums, theme parks, galleries and historic spaces.
Here is our run down of the top things to do in Windsor when you’re 3:
Jump straight for the best bed whilst Daddy hauls in all of the bags.
Play with the radio whilst Daddy figures out how to turn on the hotels Windsor lights.
Use the bed as bouncy castle whilst Daddy unpacks.
After a good nights rest, we decided to head off to Legoland. Not to be confused with the legoland discovery centres dotted around the UK which are rubbish overpriced soft play centres, this is the real deal, the full legoland theme park experience. This article should be entitled “What to do in Windsor when you’re 28″, because it was bloody brilliant! Theo loved it too of course, and although he didn’t quite relate to it in the same way I did (he has duplo, but hasn’t really played with lego yet), he loved the colours, the characters and of course the rides.
Sunday morning we woke up early to explore Windsor Castle. I opted to avoid the guided tour, as our last historic tour around an old jail in Torono ended up with me wanting to strangle the tour guide, and Theo wanting to do nothing but run off, resulting in our the whole family storming out in in a massive stress. So, I thought this time I’d let Theo have a run around the grounds whilst having a pleasant stroll around, and it was perfect for that (even if there were a few elderly couples unimpressed with Theo’s total disregard for 900 years of British history).
For the afternoon, I was getting tired of walking and keeping a close eye on Theo, so we set off to end the day on a ride along the Thames with Salters Steamers. The weather was beatiful, and it was a lovely ending to a thoroughly enjoyable weekend for the both of us
