Boiled eggs and soldiers (and rabbits)


A few weekends back, we went on a family jolly to Wookey Hole Caves. I love a good old shonky visitor attraction. The kind that probably started off as a mildly interesting geographical feature, and ends up as a pick 'n' mix of attractions. Indoor funfair? Check. Fibreglass dinosaur park? Check. Victorian penny arcade? Check. Mirror maze? Check. Collection of hard-boiled eggs painted like famous clowns? Check.



Gargantuan Jeff Koons-style rabbit? Check.



Brobdingnagian wooden soldiers? Check.



Such fun. You must go.

  4. You're wining the cardigan battle! I guess the day out gave some negotiating room, or did you have to use dolly mix too? The girls are beautiful, and angelic.

  5. What a great, if ever so slightly cheesy, place to visit. I clicked on the link to their website and was greeted with music and lots of 'enticing' chat about what's there....I'm not aware of anywhere like that out here but must hunt a bit harder from now on!

  6. Julie - you're absolutely right, the website is completely terrifying...I should never have linked to it! It's really nothing like that when you get there - mind you, we went off-season, so it might well be a totally mental in the Summer holidays.
