My friend has requested that I put a handy list of ‘Grandparent Friendly’ places to go with kids in Gloucestershire so that she doesn’t have to Google anything! So..here goes:
1) The House of the Tailor of Gloucester.
Museum and shop dedicated to all things Beatrix Potter and in particular, her famous Gloucester story. A wonderfully quaint museum and near to the Cathedral which is also free and great to have a look around.
2) The Wilson Museum
Free to walk around and it has a great little local history section (tucked away!) with some weird and wonderful exhibits and a little play area. It also has a new ‘World of Wonders’ playroom.
3) The Library
Find your local one online and check opening times.
4) Pittville Park
Massive playground. Lake with ducks and nice cafes for ice cream!
6) Sudeley Castle
It has a great playground/mini castle. Large picnic and play area and an interesting Castle to walk around.
Lovely place. River, Railway Museum, Model Village, Motor Museum, Ice Cream, Chips, Bakeries.
