What We Look For

As parents ourselves, we know what to look for when it comes to reviewing local attractions and points of interest. Generally speaking, the criteria we pay particular attention to is:

  • Age Range
    • Is it suitable for younger or older children, or both?
  • Type
    • Indoor or outdoor, important depending on the time of year…!
  • Facilities
    • Is there a cafe or restaurant, are there picnic tables?
    • Are there toilets readily available, with baby changing facilities?
    • Is parking available and accommodating, or is there parking available nearby? How much does it cost?
    • Is it wheelchair friendly, with disabled toilets?
  • Reviews
    • How does it score on sites like TripAdvisor and Google reviews? What are common pros and cons?

All of the above are taken into account when creating our scoring, but the one thing that carries the most weight is our own personal experiences!
