Winkworth Arboretum

I know I’ve taken the kids here several times before, but it really is a beautiful place to go and have a wander. When I mentioned where we were going the kids asked “Is it the place with all those bridges?” They were please when I said “Yes!” because we like to play the Bridge game which is a scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. We don’t get flung off the bridge if we don’t know the answer, but it’s good fun.

What is your name? What is your quest? What......?

We took our own lunch with us, and after having a bit of a wander about we sat down and ate. The views are beautiful whether you’re down in the Badgers Bowl or up at one of the view points. The trees are coming into leaf now and they look amazing.

After George had played in the trees like a monkey and Emily had seen how deep various area of the lake were, it was time to have an ice cream and then come home.

It only takes us about 45 minute to get to Winkworth which is brilliant. I expect we’ll go back again before the year is out, hopefully in the summer and have a picnic in the Rowe’s Flashe Meadow.
