I hadn't previously visited Waltham Abbey, although it's only about 15 miles away. We went on a bright sunny day and I thought the gardens were lovely. There is parking just behind the Abbey, which is free for two hours. The Abbey is small and lovely inside, although access was a little difficult that day as only a small door was open (narrow with a step). The gardens are a green area with lots of trees, and lovely dappled shade. The river runs along the edge of the site, and there are lovely.

I have always liked this museum but hadn't visited for a few years. I was very impressed by the changes that have taken place-bigger premises, lift installed, inviting reception area and gift shop, to name a few. The current exhibition is on King Harold and it is really fascinating. As always, there seemed to be plenty of hands-on related activities for children. Also, the staff are really friendly and willing to chat and offer information if required. I would certainly recommend a visit.

Had a lovely day at the farm. Lots to see and do. Had great fun walking round with a bag of animal feed feeding the goats, sheep, pigs etc. Farm is very clean and tidy, with plenty of taps with soap and hot water to wash hands dotted about the place. Little one enjoyed the playgrounds and had great fun sitting in the inflatable rings whizzing down the hill! Good quality food in the restaurant and there afternoon tea was lovely! Got on the trailer pulled by the tractor and took a trip.
