Local mum and founder of From A to You, Heidi Stanhope shares her favourite places to visit right here on our doorstep.
Stick Man Trail at Wendover Woods
Get the kids out and active in this fun day out on the Stick Man Trail; simply pick up a pack for £3 before you set out, and see the kids run around and get involved in the fun. There are trail panels to find, and activities to keep the kids from getting bored – and when you sit down for a break afterwards, the kids can keep themselves busy by making Stick Men themselves provided in the activity pack.

The newly opened Rush Indoor Trampoline park is getting popular very quickly, and for good reason. It’s a busy place, with lots of different activities to do, and some adults will have just as much fun as the kids on the trampolines. For those not quite so brave, there’s a café with surprisingly good food, coffee and wifi.
Bojangles Creative Café
Have a creative day out and make a keepsake for yourselves, or a gift for the grandparents. This sweet café in Amersham will definitely be a big hit with the kids, and possibly a few parents too. Our personal favourite are the hand- or footprints, but they do recommend that you book those in advance.
The Hell Fire Caves
If your kids like spooky things, or are keen explorers, then the Hell Fire Caves in Wycombe is a perfect day out for you. Also check out their website for some great workshops with games and fancy dress for Half Term, or book the School of Witchcraft during the Easter Holidays.
Fancy a more quiet day with the kids? Why not check out what’s on at Everyman cinema in Gerrards Cross, and get comfortable with a drink and nibble in one of their cosy sofas.
