Oxford?

...people to see. Well, not really. More like 'we went to the Umbrella Museum in Ashby de la Zouch and it was GREAT.' If there is such a thing, that is.

Oxford?

We're off to Oxford to meet up with some friends on Saturday afternoon but we have the rest of the weekend to fill. What do you suggest? We're definitely having a visit to the Pitt Rivers but could do with some child friendly restaurant recommendations and the girls want to go swimming.

The swimming pools in Oxford are on the edges of the town - my favourite is in Summertown. Or there's Hinksey open air pool but you need 1-to-1 adult-to-child for under 8s (I think).

I'd like to visit the Story Museum but haven't got round to it yet. Same with the History of Science museum.

The Cowley Road festival is on this Sunday - I haven't been with kids but there's loads going on and the Kaz Bar up that way is a lovely tapas restaurant (again I haven't been with kids).

La Cucina is my favourite Italian and the staff are great with kids - we've not been for a while but now II'm craving their tiramisu!

I'll pop back if I think of anything else... unfortunately we're busy this weekend or I'd suggest a boat trip to Abingdon - I suppose you could do that anyway!

We always had fun at the Botanical Gardens watching punters be completely rubbish!

Pitt Rivers and Natural History Museum was a great success, DD2's photo of herself being eaten by a T Rex went down well at Show and Tell, DS loved his torch at the Pitt Rivers. We ate in Wagamamas (kids love it) and bought books in Blackwells, DD1 got one of those 3in1 Rainbow Fairies books and read it as she walked past Trinity and through the University Gardens and finished it by the time we got home.
