A day out

I took the Little People to Highclere Castle, near Newbury, yesterday. Everyone else was there to see where Downton Abbey was filmed, having not seen the TV series, we were there to see their Egyptian Exhibition (Highclere was the home of Lord Carnarvon, who financed Howard Carter's expedition to find Tutankhamun's Tomb). The exhibition is amazing, and the two little whirlwinds loved the house too as the stewards went out of their way to show them secret cuboards and hidden doors. They had a great time hiding in the rhododendrons as well, all in all a lovely day!

P.S While I was wondering around the gardens, I realised that my 52 photos project might just turn into a 12 photo project, so I thought I should get busy with my camera:


  1. The children look like they are having a great time. Sounds like a good place to visit - Edward would love it! x x

  2. If the smiles are anything to go by you really had a fun day out! Great for a boost!
