Trent Park

Reviewed By Smileyheartface - England, United Kingdom

This is a beautiful park just inside the m25.
Unfortunately it has been spoilt by the unnecessary addition of go ape and the decision to build a large housing development.
The animal sanctuary cafe is worth going to. It also helps pay for the care of our wildlife, that has been hurt or is sick.

Barnet Museum

Reviewed By brianbluebird - London, United Kingdom

Been meaning to visit for a while. Much more interesting than I expected. Lots of local items and artifacts many from 20th Century and earlier. Great information features and photos. Very interesting on WW2 Bombing in Barnet. And its local and easy to find just off the High Street. Well worth a visit with kids. They will have questions. I was impressed with the Publications and Books available. This is a wonderful Barnet institution. Enthusiastic volunteers.

Bhaktivedanta Manor

In the Hertfordshire countryside just north of London, Bhaktivedanta Manor, complete with its farmlands, beautiful Gardens and temple is a real sanctuary for the soul. Open all year round to visitors and students of ancient wisdom, the temple offers a great experience with tours of the shrine, Gardens and compassionate farm. See the rooms of the famous Hare Krishna guru Srila Prabhupada, to whom George Harrison gifted this iconic mock Tudor mansion. Visitors may participate in inspirational talks, yoga classes, mantra meditation, vegetarian cooking classes and various retreats.

Excellent comfy helicopter, everyone gets a view of some sorts. Ask in advance to get the pilot seat!!
Very short flight, along the river, could easily have stayed up a lot longer. Good value when bought through a voucher site!

Bentley Priory Museum

Bentley Priory Museum, previously RAF Headquarters Fighter Command, is a site of national historical importance and from where the Battle of Britain was won. We are a small private charitable trust ensuring that the legacy of 'The One, The Few and The Many' is not lost; but appreciated, celebrated and commemorated for many years to come. Throughout the year we welcome individuals, groups, schools and corporate organisations to come and explore the splendour of this amazing Sir John Soane extended property, which has hints of Italian grandeur and where many Second World War and Cold War secrets were hidden within.

We’ve lived in Stanmore for thirty years and grew up looking through the fence at Bentley priory mansion so visiting it was great. The building is magnificent with ornate wooden staircases and spectacular stained glass windows. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and gave us an information sheets and map to help us find our way around. Our five year old enjoyed learning about the role of the spitfires and hurricanes aircraft. The museum is very interactive with vintage telephones to listen to conversations of times gone by. The ballroom has a small cockpit plane for the kids to explore complete with helmet and jacket. We loved learning about the role Bentley priory played during the war. The video we watched was very informative and interactive. The grounds look amazing, we look forward to exploring them in the warmer months. We enjoyed a hot cup of tea in the beautiful cafe which over looks the Gardens. I would recommend buying the yearly membership if you’re planning on more than one visit. Great day out and very educational.

MegaJump Trampoline Park

Our Free Jumping sessions are a great way to get a work out, bust some stress or have some serious fun. It’s best to arrive 15 to 20 minutes before your session so we can check your form, show you a quick safety video and kit you out with your Mega socks. Remember, they’re yours to keep so you can wear them whenever you fancy a session at MegaJump.

I attended my god child's bday party with my two kids. The kids had so much fun apart from a watcher who was telling my 4. Year old not to walk on the trampoline because its not allowed while letting other children walk. Some staff are friendly and some are not

Myddelton House Gardens

An enchanting place to visit at any time of year. Delve into the beautiful eight acres of Myddelton House Gardens and discover the compelling story of Edward Augustus Bowles, one of Britain’s most famous self-taught gardeners, artists and expert botanists.

Reviewed By Clive A - Sawbridgeworth, United Kingdom

Lovely traditional English garden
Beautiful walks through lovely trees and shrubs
Lovely well maintained walled garden
Overall a very nice place to visit to observe and chill out
It’s free To visit the Gardens, however the car park operates a Pay and Display £2.50 all day Good value
The site offers a cafe area, but I’m unable to make a comment as I didn’t visit the cafe
Yes, I would highly recommend a visit
My other comment would be that the footpaths around the garden are suitable for disabled persons

So 30 of us came to Mops and brooms in Borehamwood - second time we eat as a group at this gastro bub - Xmas festive set menu with 4 choices for starters mains Deserts - all food excellent - what let them down was inconsistent service - friendly but disorganised - spoiled the evening a bit - saving grace was the quality of the food
