UK – 2005 UK-France Adventure

June and July 0f 2005 we did our first brig trip to UK and France with the girls. As would be the case for our Europe trips we started at Kerrie’s mum and dad’s in Ormskirk, England just outside of Liverpool.

Kerrie’s sister lives in Yorkshire and while on a side trip to visit her we stopped at Malham Cove – a natural limestone formation 1 km north of the village of Malham, North Yorkshire, England.

After a few days with Kerrie parents we started our tour of UK first. An early stop was the Wedgewood Factory. At the end of the factory tour the girls got to decorate Wedgewood Plates. The factory is in the Staffordshire countryside and an interesting stop.

A few more days at the Cotswolds was a great way to enjoy the English summer – especially as this was a camping holiday and so we would setup the tent and then look around.

From Cotswolds we went on to spend a few days in London visiting friends. We took the kids to the London Natural History Museum, Hamleys and the London Eye – all great for kids.
