Travel – Our stay at Hilton Hotel Windsor

We visited Legoland Windsor in the summer holidays and had the lovely opportunity to lodge at Hilton Hotel Windsor for 3 nights. The hotel was really good, we had a nice time there and will definitely visit again in the future. Legoland was all shades of amazing and I will be writing a post on that in the next few days, so look out for that write-up. For now, let me tell you all about our wonderful stay at Hilton Hotel Windsor.

Checking in was quick and the staff were quite helpful. I liked the family room we got. it was big and well spaced out. The room amenities were spot on. We had everything we needed and the beds were so comfortable. I like the fact that the kids had their own beds set up for them as well. Everything was laid out perfectly and the room decor was luxurious as always with Hilton Hotels. We loved going back to our rooms every evening.

We ate many meals at the hotel. The breakfast was good but usually busy thanks to the location and the time of the year. However we always made sure to go down on time so we could get a good table and enough to get bellies fed. The kids had dinner for free as well and that was so helpful. It was nice to go back to the hotel for dinner and get few dinner for the kiddies once we paid for ours. I think that is a lovely incentive.

I also love the fact that there were lots of sockets available in the room to charge our gadgets. Recently, I have noticed a reduction in hotel bedroom sockets and I wonder why. So I was pleased this was not the case with Hilton Hotel Windsor.

Overall, I would recommend Hilton Hotel Windsor especially if you are planning on visiting Legoland. It is a few minutes drive away from the theme park and quite affordable when you compare what you get with what you pay. I will definitely stay in this hotel again whenever I am in the area. We had a great time overall.

The only issue I had was with the noisy families around but then again that is kind of expected because of the time of the year we travelled and the fact that almost everyone there was there for Legoland. So the kids were very hyper and noisy. We just got on with it.

Family Travel Fun in Sheffield

This post is all about our family travel fun in Sheffield. I have written about our time in Sheffield thrice now. The first blog post was all about Novotel Hotel where we stayed. Our second post  was all about our tour of the Winter Gardens, and some days ago I wrote about the Millennium Gallery in Sheffield. To end our time in Sheffield, we went on some rides we were lucky enough to find in the city centre, close to the hotel. There were also lots of activities around. We all had a lovely afternoon exploring them all. The kiddies had a fantastic time as expected. They loved all the rides and the weather on the day was great as well.

Family Travel Fun in Sheffield

I was pleasantly surprised to find so many things to see and do in Sheffield. It is a fairly small city, so I wasn’t expecting too much. We had a lovely time there. It was an action packed 48 hours of fun and games I will never forget. The kids keep talking about our time in Sheffield as well so I know they enjoyed every moment. Some of the rides were really good. I wish we had this sort of thing in our little village. That would be so amazing.

I couldn’t capture all the rides so I decided to record short videos here and there. You can watch a short clip of the twins on some rides on our Youtube Channel below. Also please subscribe to the channel to catch up on all our videos.

 

 

Have you visited Sheffield? What did you think of the city? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below. I will be writing about our time at Legoland Windsor in my next travel post. We had the lovely opportunity to visit the theme park shortly after visiting Sheffield, and we had even more fun there. Look out for that travel post.

Great places to visit in London

*Collaborative post.

We explored the city of London earlier this year and the kiddies loved it. London is a regular holiday destination for us as we lived there before and we have lots of family and friends around the city. The city is full of life and I love exploring all that it brings. It is too much of a busy city for me to live in but holidaying there works great as there are lots to see and do. Plus getting there is easy for us as we love a good old train ride every now and again. There is a quick train to Gatwick airport to London Victoria, so we can easily get  to the city of fun.

If you are thinking of exploring London, here are some great places to visit in London –

 

Buckingham Palace

Buckingham Palace is one place to visit when you are exploring London City. We visited Buckingham Palace this April and we loved it. It was fun to see the palace up close and the guards were fun to watch as well. The kiddies love it but were disappointed they didn’t get to see the Queen 😊

 

Get on a London Bus

Getting on a London Tour Bus is great for those visiting the city for the first time. The buses take you round the popular spots in the city and tell you all about the history behind every tourist attraction. It is a nice way to see the city but if you can’t get on any of the tour buses, you can easily see some parts of the city by popping on a regular London bus. That is what we did after exploring Buckingham Palace. We got a London Bus from the city centre and that took us to a different side of London.

The twins loved it as they were reading about London school and were thrilled to get on a London Red Bus. The best part for them was sitting on the top deck. That was the highlight of the day for them. Kids do love the littlest things.

Big Ben

Big Ben was a must for us too as the kiddies have read about it and wanted to see it in real life. Our tour of the city was more of an educational tour. It was based on all what they have read about London at school and it was fun for us the grownups to see the city through their eyes. The view was perfect. Big Ben is definitely a spot to explore if you plan on being around the area.

 

London Eye

I loved our time in the London Eye. It was a lot of fun and I cannot wait to get on it again. London Eye is definitely a must if you want to really be a tourist in London. It is worth visiting for sure.

 

Madame Tussauds

Madame Tussauds is another great spot in London to visit. The wax museum is filled up with popular faces and the kids (especially my daughter) love taking photos with them.
