Beddy visits the Conisborough Castle – Doncaster

Monday, August 5th, 2013

I visited the Conisborough Castle yesterday, and it was brilliant!!!

We learnt that it was built in 1070 which was shortly after the huge battle of Hastings where two armies were fighting for the country of England.

Sadly the castle has fallen down now and there is only one tall building which is called a keep which the goodies would use to kill the baddies.

I would highly recommend a visit!

LinQy visits John Smith Stadium – Huddersfield

Friday, July 19th, 2013

Yesterday my cousin LinQy and I visited the John Smith stadium, which is the home ground to football team Huddersfield Town.

It is also the home of Huddersfield Giants Rugby Union team!

We learned that it has 24,500 seats for the home and away supporters to sit in.

That’s a lot of people!!

We also learnt that the ground was opened 19years ago! Which is a lot older than you and me?

Beddy & LinQy visit The Royal Mile – Edinburgh

Thursday, May 9th, 2013

Today me and my cousin visited the Royal Mile in Edinburgh.  The mile runs between Edinburgh Castle, and Holyrood Palace.

The Royal Mile is Edinburgh Old Town’s busiest tourist street. Today, we saw a big mix of shops, restaurants, pubs and historic buildings. It was very exciting to be in such a busy and fun place, but I had to make sure I didn’t get lost!

Beddy visits The National Railway Museum

Thursday, March 14th, 2013

I visited the National railway Museum the other day; you can discover 300 years of history and 1,000,000 objects that changed the world. It was so much fun learning about the railway. Do you like the railway?  You can even play with the trains; they come in all shapes and sizes. Some are really small whereas others are huge and you can even sit in them! You should definitely go if you have the chance!

LinQy visits York Minster…

york minster

Yesterday, I went to York and saw the cathedral.

It was very impressive, and somebody told me that people began building it in 1230, that is over 700 years ago!

I thought it was amazing that something so large and detailed could have been made without machinery and electricity. You should be sure to go if you visit York because this is definitely an experience I will not forget!

Beddy & Linqy visit…Snowdonia

Thursday, October 18th, 2012

Today I went to Snowdonia, in North Wales. This area is named after Mount Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales. There are a lot of mountains, hills and rivers, and the countryside is very beautiful. My favourite part was that there were lots of wild animals, like Otters, and big birds like Ravens!

LinQy visits Uffington!

Thursday, October 4th, 2012

Today I went to Uffington and I got a big surprise! On the hill, I could see a huge white horse, drawn into the grass! This was over 100 metres long, and it was amazing! Somebody told me that it is over 3000 years old! Who could have made this so long ago?

LinQy Visits… Xscape

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

Today I visited Xscape in Castleford, it was a brilliant day out and I did a range of activities, first I went skiing and then had lunch, after I went to the cinema, did some rock climbing and then finished with some shopping.

There are lots more to do there, too much to do in one day! I want to go back again sometime and go to the Lazerzone.

Beddy Visits… Tenby

Thursday, July 19th, 2012

I’m in Tenby which is a seaside town located on the south coast of Wales. The beach goes on forever and is full of soft golden sand which is perfect for building sandcastles. The water is really warm and really blue; you can even see some starfish laying on the seabed. Lots of boats set sail from the harbour and you can see people waving them off into the horizon.

Tenby used to host home to a great castle but unfortunately it went under attack and came crashing down. Now all that is left are the 5 Arches Gate, which actually make a pretty nice historical landmark.

Beddy Visits … Cambridge

Thursday, July 12th, 2012

I’ve travelled all the way to the East to deliver in the city of Cambridge. This historic city has lots of old Victorian buildings and a beautiful big river where people like to row boats. In the centre are some lovely markets where I’ve found lots of nice sweets to buy.

The University campus is really big and busy with lots and lots of clever people. Sir Isaac Newton studied at Cambridge University in 1661 and is a very important scientist whose discoveries are even very useful today.

The Botanic Gardens are filled with wildlife and plants from all over the world. It was fantastic to see all the bright flowers, big leaves, butterflies, birds and mammals all nestled within the garden and it’s greenhouses. I really enjoyed my trip to Cambridge and hopefully I’ll get to make some more deliveries there soon.
