BILLY no mates :cry:

What should Billy no mate do?

If youre not from newcastle, maybe a trip to the metro centre?
itll probably cost you once you get there though with it being the largest shopping centre in europe!

just looked at their website....seems good.. will visit

i am in in kent....

i used to think that Bluwater was the biggest shopping centre in Europe

For the kiddies, I receommend Mole Hall Wildlife Park.

It's near Stanstead Airport in Essex (we live in London and it was worth the journey just up the M11) and the website is molehall.com/115…tml

It is considerably cheaper than better known places (I think is cost £6.50 for adults and £4.50 for children)

You can buy biscuits to feed the deers and seeds for the ducks and they have 2 hilarious chimpanzees, flamingoes, peacocks, pigs, etc.

There is then a huge haystack for them to climb on a big sandpit with toys, a squirty water maze nd 2 playareas (one for older, one for younger children).

My son LLLLUUUURRRVVVEEESSS diggers and trucks so we may try this place next diggerland.com/ind…htm

We don't know what to do this Summer so please can every body recommend some places?

Thanks, is that the one where you drive your car through the park?

We were worried about our car getting scratched or damaged, can anyone share their experience?

Thorpe park

I'd recommend the Crocky trail - really good hands-on fun!!!7.00 admission & under 5s free
The Crocky Trail is an outdoor adventure trail one mile in length with loads of activities along the way, such as mazes, swings, slides, bridges, tunnels etc, though there is always a way around the more challenging obstacles.

At the Crocky Trail we have a selection of chocolates, sweets, cold and hot drinks which are available at the tuck shop near the entrance to the trail. People are welcome to bring along snacks and picnics to eat in the picnic area, play area or along the trail in the open countryside.

Try ]Geocaching.

Warning it can be very addictive. :thumbsup:

Oh my, this looks great fun!

I have just been looking at the site and there are a good few near me to get started.

Could I do this with my TomTom?

There is a risk if you drive through the monkey enclosure only but you do not have to drive through if you don't want to. :thumbsup: However there are wardens in there that will come to your rescue if they go on the rampage.

Also at this time of year, only go if you have air con as it will get very warm with your windows done up otherwise.

I've never tried it with Tomtom but I know some do start out this way.
If you know the area quite well you may be able to find the cache without maps.

It's a great day out and a good excuse for a walk with the other half or kids.

It's taken us to loads of local places that we did not know existed before we took up Geocaching and we've made loads of new friends too.

There is a UK forum ]here

Let me know how you get on or if you have any questions then please ask.

Thanks Stora. We will certainly have to give this a go, I just didn't know if the TomTom gave me the option of inputting the coordinates (or whatever they're called!).

I am going to get my Tom Tom out of the car shortly and have a look if I can do it.

I certainly will be asking you for help if we need it, thanks!

I have given you rep already.

Just wanted to gve this a bump, what with the school holidays approaching - what on earth am I going to do with the kids? (my daughter's 5 - first school holidays!)

Looking for less common things, not like the main theme parks and Southend!

Come on peeps, suggestions please!
