I'm not going anywhere this year other than some day trips here and there within U.K,cos I'm pregnant and didn't want to go anywhere.

Norfolk, because I have to.

Got back from Dom Republic in Feb & off to Turkey in Sept - was also looking at Cuba next year myself - looks ok - not sure though

Not going this year as I have said to the O/H that we can't afford it but as it's our 25th aniversary next Jan I have an epic holiday planned starting in New York and finishing up in Florida, she has no idea! My Daughters are helping me with the subterfuge :oops:

It's not going to amazing, and have heard it's a bit far out but we wouldn't be going away otherwise so it will do for us.

Nice - any plans are nice plans - days out are what you make of them

All enjoy your holidays - long or short!

Do you go into London at all? There are some Fab museums that are free, and Leicester Square and Covent Garden can be very exciting with the street entertainers. If you use Tesco - 4x your clubcard vouchers to get meal deals!

We stayed at the All Star Movies Resort

It was very nice - but food was expensive as you are paying disney prices all the way. Might be worth looking at the dinner plan if you stay in resort! A bottle of water was $2.50 and the tap water was disgusting!

When are you going?

Yeh sometimes we do,we'll be dropping off in Covent Garden after Lego,cos we'll stay the night on the last day and have a look around Windsor then make our way back on train. Covent Garden,fairly closed in,don't really worry about traffic so ideal for kids,plenty of street enterainment going on too and I like to browse the market.
Yeh Lego annual passes from last Aug all purchased with Tesco deals,it be our 3rd time up since last Aug and we do 2 days a time in there,well 1st day more like getting in there about 1pm.Doing Pizza Express at moment lately from Clubcard deals.
I'm right on the coast here so kids are happy on beach and in this nice coastal park nearby,they wouldn't mind if I took them daily and free,just small train fare each time.
Their grandparents be taking them out too.

Off to Ayia Napa in August as it's a beautiful country, lovely beaches, lotsa sun ... n i LOVE clubbin
Just a shame it's the euro there

Not been Thorpe Park,this be 3rd time at Lego since last August would done early August but don't know how easy I'll find it walking about all day,not that I be going on rides so be sat down sometimes while waiting for them lot lol.
I been Chessington previous years.
I only go as foot passenger on the ferry and it's fairly cheap,just book online.I know where I can the free buses they do,and then there is a small fare for the bus into Cite Europe.

Butlins! Woooooooo

Sounds fabulous! Its a good 1.5 hour drive for us to the coast - but we can use Clubcard vouchers to go to Paradise Wildlife park - nowhere near as exciting as Legoland!

I LOVE WIndsor! The Castle and the river walks - It's gorgeous.

thorpe park is awesome! i remember when it was a childs park but its more for adults now! i think chessington and thorpe ahve switched rolls! i loved chessington but havent been for years!! I think if your quite heavily pregnant, you would enjoy the day out so much! I also havent been france for a long time either lol! all these places i wanna go!:thumbsup:

Yeh it doesn't matter where you go sometimes,aslong as you can make a change and get out the house.

We've not been to Chessington since 2007 but my eldest can get on almost anything there and I imagine my youngest can get on nearly as much as him now. Yeh we'll go Thorpe Park sometime but not when I'm pregnant.
We get these hand stamps at Lego so don't que at the rides,so I won't mind waiting 5-10mins as they do the rides at Lego,I'll have a little sit down while they go on the rides.My partner says he feels sorry for me,but I really don't mind and the kids can't wait to go again,it was freezing for the fireworks last time.
Yeh I'm in port of Dover so pretty easy to get a ferry,within walking distance or just get Eurostar at Ashford Int.

hhhhhhhhhhuuuuuuuuuuummmmmmmmmm
