Bressingham Steam Museum and Gardens starring Mike the Knight
The boys love trains, and with the added bonus that Tyrus and Eowyns favourite TV knight was going to be making an appearance, we set off on the 40 minute drive. It is located within the stunning Waveney Valley and is a lovely family day out for all ages.
On arrival, we were met with various knight themed activities, including little tents for the children to go in, dressing up clothes, storytellers, jester skills and of course appearances throughout the day from `Mike the Knight’ himself!!
Throughout the season they have many special guests, including Moshi Monsters, Tree Fu Tom and Peppa Pig, with more due to visit in 2014.
The children and Asa had an amazing time on the Gallopers, I was surprised how fast they went, no sooner had I waved to the children, they seemed to be back round again!! We need to visit again minus bump just so I can have a go on the Gallopers…
The train rides were just the right length of time, even for the younger ones, and there is plenty to things to spot on your travels.
They enjoyed the gardens and reading all of the different names of the flowers and plants, they even made a note of their favourites, just in case I get green fingers over the winter months!!
The younger children enjoyed the Play Area, the older ones pretended they were only on there to supervise!
The traditional sweet shop was a struggle, with so many delicious sweets to choose from, however we chomped away merrily for the afternoon on Rhubarb and Custards, Cola Cubes and Mint Imperials.
The old fashioned Penny Arcade was a huge hit with all of the children and Neva was very lucky, winning quite a few pennies.
If this looks like a day out for you, then I have some great news!
