Today we visited Exbury Gardens in Hampshire, as we had won a competition over on Attachment Mummy’s blog. The main reason for the excitement was the spooky Halloween ghost train. To tell you it was so bad it was good, is my best description. With bad jokes a plenty, some spooky friends along the way, it was fun way to spend a windy Sunday. I don’t think anyone would be truly scared, unless you are easily offended by terrible jokes.
The boy enjoyed trying go get lost in the trees, and following the spooky tree trail. We found some amazing autumn leaves, which we plan to press. I don’t think we could of had a better day out, finding sticks, leaves and a giant bell. Exbury gardens is free for kids, although there is a charge to ride the train. I think it is somewhere I would love to walk round on a spring day when the Rhododendrons are in flower, as they are famed for the variety that they have at Exbury.
Due to the storm the gardens will be closed on Monday 28th October, but if you get the chance to go and join the spooky Halloween train I would recommend it maybe as a once in a lifetime! The boy wanted to go round again, but it was time to warm up in the café with a cup of hot chocolate.
Thankfully we had a safe trip home, in time to round up our cats and tie everything else down for the night, I just hope my garden is still there in the morning!
I have some more lovely photos to upload when my phone decides to co-operate! and have linked up to Country kids as it was lovely to get out and about.
