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… Olympic Ceremony

Thursday, August 2nd, 2012

Friday night was the Olympic opening ceremony, a big night with people from all over the world watching. Me and LinQy were there to witness the marvellous performances and the amazing firework display but we didn’t enjoy the long drive home!

After discussing the best moments I said that the James Bond sketch was the best but LinQy said he loved the Rowan Atkinson part!

Beddy visits… Huddersfield

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

Today I popped along to Huddersfield to have a go at playing a game of Rugby League. The sport is very close to the people of Huddersfield’s hearts as it was where the sport evolved from Rugby Union. The town has a Rugby League team called the Huddersfield Giants who at the moment are 2nd in the Super League table.

Huddersfield is quite an old town that is well known for making cloth, maybe some of the material made to make your clothes came from Huddersfield. You can still see lots of the old textile mills as you travel around the city, some of them are very beautiful.

Beddy visits… Hull

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

On my deliveries I stopped in a city called Hull.

While I was there I drove along the Humber Bridge and visited the KC stadium which was really fun. The city is different from others I have been too because I was surprised to see they have cream telephone boxes in the city instead of red!

Beddy visits… Cardiff

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

I went all the way to Cardiff today! Cardiff is a big city which is the capital of Wales.

Wales is a very pretty country with lots of hills and sheep,  and in Cardiff there are lots of things to visit. The Millennium Stadium is a well known venue which was built in 1999, it holds lots of sporting events like the Welsh rugby and lots of music concerts take place there.

Cardiff is also the home of the TV programme Doctor Who. He visits the city lots of times on his journeys in the Tardis. I think the Doctor is a bit like me with all the travelling he does!

Beddy visits…Manchester

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

Hi everyone. This week me and my cousin Lily were busy delivering newspapers for Bedfords Transport in Manchester.

Manchester is well known for being a city of sport. Two Premiership football clubs are located here, Manchester United and Manchester City. There are also lots of sporting arenas around the city that will be used as training facilities by athletes preparing for the 2012 Olympics in London.

Make sure you keep an eye out for me and Lily making deliveries for Bedfords Transport across the UK this summer.

Beddy visits… Wembley Stadium

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

Today has been really exciting because I went to Wembley Stadium which is England’s national stadium and home of our national football club! Wembley Stadium is based in London in the South of UK. Did you know that Wembley Stadium is the second largest stadium in Europe?

The stadium has a retractable roof which can open and close depending on the weather. In 2012 it will also host the football finals of the London Olympics. Besides football, Wembley is also used to hold music concerts and has hosted Madonna, Coldplay, Take That and Oasis.
