Things To Do


What I've done on this page is to collate loads of information from the Internet, from brochures etc. into one place to provide some ideas!

I have tried to limit it to our local(ish) area, so that car journeys won't be tedious. I think the furthest away is Colwyn Bay Zoo - but its straight down the A55 so not too far in terms of time.
