A couple of lovely days out down here amongst the South Downs. Today we were at The Science Centre at Herstmonceaux Observatory
nestled in the East Sussex countryside. My son actually said it was b
etter than London's Science Museum because you can play with stuff. Adults and kids intrigued by how things work will love this place and the beautiful Tudor Herstmonceaux Castle
is just up the road and there are plenty of nice pubs for a pint and a ploughmans.
Yesterday we were at Knockhatch Adventure Park
a couple of miles west of Hailsham. Creepy crawlies, birds of prey, adventure playground, miniature railway, bungee - a load of stuff to do for Dads! Ah, but get in early for the go-karts, it wasn't too well organised. There is a dry ski and snowboard centre too (check here
for opening times), I'm definitely going back for that.
And then tomorrow we are off to France, thank god not by ferry
as those buggers do this every year, but by Eurostar. Early start to Ashford and then seats booked on the train. We'll get about 5 hours walking the streets, market and city parks of Lille before we return home. Bonsoir.
