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 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!

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… Whitby

Friday, May 11th, 2012

Today I’m delivering to the historic town of Whitby. The town is famous for being the birth place for the horror story Dracula. The story was written by the famous author Bram Stoker who holidayed in the fishing town, and took inspiration from the dramatic scenery around him.

The great explorer Captain James Cook began his seaman training in Whitby. Cook began the life of a sailor on the Freelove in February 1747, carrying a cargo of coal from Whitby to London. He went on to be one of the most famous early explorers travelling all over the world. There is a museum dedicated to Cook in Whitby, which I visited to learn about his adventures.

Beddy visits… Hull

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

This week I’ve stopped off in Hull. Hull is by the sea but it’s a bit cold today to go fishing so I’ve come to The Deep!

The Deep is the only Submarium in the world. The tanks contain thousands of sea creatures including seven different kinds of shark. I had a great day looking at all the interesting sea life and learned lots about life under the sea.

Beddy visits… Southampton

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

I’ve been bowling in Southampton on the world’s oldest bowling green which is over 700 years old. It’s not the kind of bowling where you try to knock down pins, but where you roll a ball as close as possible to a smaller ball. It’s a fun game to play in the garden.

There is also a marina in Southampton which often has cruise ships that set sail from the docks, the QE2 and the Titanic have sailed from here. It’s great to stand on the beach and wave to people going on their travels. I had better get back on mine…

Beddy visits… Whitby

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

Today I visited the home of Dracula, Whitby, which is a place near Scarborough.

The town holds many different festivals and events each year such as the Whitby Regatta which each team wants to win.

While I was there it was the Whitby Folk Week and there were many different folk artists playing all over the town, it was a great day.

Beddy visits… Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Monday, October 17th, 2011

Today Emily and I visited Blackpool Pleasure Beach and went on lots of rides!

We enjoyed looking round Nickelodeon Land and we went on the Spongebobs Splash Bash and Nickelodeon Streak. We had some candy floss and, of course, we bought some world famous Blackpool Rock which was delicious!

At the end of the day both of us were going to go on the Big One, one of Europe’s tallest rollercoasters, but we were too frightened! Would you go on the Big One?

Beddy visits… Newquay

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

Today I visited Newquay in Cornwall which is a hugely popular place for tourists.

Usually there are 22,000 people who live in Newquay, however in summer there can be as many as 100,000 people.

Emily and I saw lots of beautiful beaches where there were many surfers who kept falling off their boards! My favourite beach was Fistral Beach which is said to be the best in the whole of Cornwall.
