Noah's Ark Zoo Farm **REVIEW**

We love spending days out as a family and we are always looking for new places to visit so when we were recently invited to come along and enjoy a family day out at Noah's Ark zoo farm we jumped at the chance.

Despite being the summer holidays the entrance and ticket booths were so well manned there was no queuing time at all. There are 4 ticket booths which definitely helps keep ques down much to our delight as Evelyn hates queuing.

As we entered the park we discovered the cafe and gift shop as well as a large play area which included a climbing area and huge trampolines. Noah's Ark also currently have the elephant trail which you can complete. You simple pick up a map and a set of stickers near the entrance and find the decorated elephant statues dotted around the park. James loved this and took lots of pride in doing his as we ventured through the park. Each elephant statue also contains a fact or question which really got him thinking which was great!

A Family Day Out at Castle Combe - Grand National

James is a huge fan of motorbikes, largely helped I am sure by the fact his grampy owns one and regularly lets him sit on it, help him wash it and do all the checks etc. He is adamant he wants his own bike when he is older (much to grampys delight I am sure!) but he has quite a few years before that can happen just yet! 

So when we heard there was a Grand National Motorcycle race meeting being held at Castle Combe racetrack just a short car journey away from us we knew James would love it! Saturday morning the sun was shining and of we headed to the Castle Combe circuit. Prices were really reasonable at £10 per adult for 1 day admission (or £15 if you visit on the Sunday), under 16's were free and parking was also free! 

There were lots of different types of motorbikes racing much to James delight including the classic bikes, F2 sidecars, solo classes and also parades of some of the bikes! We found a great place to sit right on a bend so the bikes were slowing down so that James could get a good look. Did you know Castle Combe is the only race track where you can walk the entire way around and still watch the race the entire time!
