Binky Bear’s days out with the kids

It’s getting colder, but here are some ideas for days out with the kids, whatever the weather.

How about planning a day out with something seasonal included, which is free. There are lots of things to watch in public places at this time of the year.

Norwich’s Tunnel of Light

Start with a walk round the historic street of the town and then walk through the 45 metre ‘tunnel’, 50,000 tiny lights, which reflect the colours and patterns of the Northern Lights. Norwich’s seasonal lights will be switched on 17 November. For info about the historic city as well, go to:-

Winchester’s Woolly Hat Fair

Or if you are Hampshire based keep your eyes out for the Woolly Hat Fair coming to Winchester.
http://hatfair.co.uk/woolly-hat-fair/ Events will be free to attend and will take place at 5pm every Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday between 3 – 22 December.

Hamleys Christmas Toy Parade- London

And if you just happen to be in London on 20 November after doing the Binky Bear walk through St James’s Park – like Binky (finishing in Trafalgar Square) join all the fun of Hamleys Christmas Toy Parade. The whole of Regent’s Street will be closed to traffic for the event.
