Is there honestly still four weeks left of the Summer holidays? Yes I’m afraid so. We all love time with our children, we really do, but the constant “where are we going today?” demands can get a little expensive.
I’ve put together a little list of things to do near where we live (Powys/Shropshire Border) which won’t cost you an arm and a leg or even a little toe for that matter. You can check out some of these places on Can Kids Go? So head over there for many more ideas or feel free to add the places you’ve been to with little ones and let the world know whether they are family friendly.
So what’s there to do in and around Powys/Shropshire border?
1. Go to The Quarry Park, Shrewsbury – This park is bloomin’ fantastic. Not only is is stunning with beautiful flower gardens, and an idyllic walk along the river, there’s a lot to offer for little ones: a newly renovated play park and splash area (all free), lawns for ball games and paths for bicycles or scooters. For more information see HERE.
5. Walk up Rodney’s Pillar – ok so perhaps this isn’t one for tiny ones – unless they’re in a backpack. We’ve taken our boys up there in a backpack a few times before, but now Arthur is 3, he’s a bit heavy and so will probably not be old enough to do the walk until he’s about 5. But if you have older children or babes in arms (or a super duper off roader buggy/stroller), then go for an adventure up to this monument. The views from Rodney’s Pillar are absolutely breathtaking.
