We had a great morning here. It was half term so there was special stuff laid on for kids (not that we had any with us!). It was also a bright dry day which makes all the difference; I think if it had been wet...More
We visited the castle during 1/2 term with a 10yo and 8yo and another family with children of similar ages. They had a Halloween themed trail. The children really enjoyed themselves especially the spooky witches house!! The toy museum was good to look round too.
So we’re in Stansted before travelling tomorrow and I’m glad we visited this little village. Started off as a search for coffee when I noticed a little girl feeding a deer. For 11 quid and 40p for like 2 hours parking directly outside, it’s not...More

Yeah, Mountfitchet castle would be fun for a ten year old.True it is only a mock up of what such a place would've been like, but its quite historicaly accurate.There are some gruesome exhibits that kids like! However, it is a fair weather type place as much of it is outdoors. There are cute animals that wander about...a gift shop etc.A trip there would probably last a few hours. You could go there (weather permitting) and then go on to Saffron Waldon for a look around.Hiring a car would be a...More
