Dinosaur World Torquay & Natural History Museum

You may have noticed that we like dinosaurs in this house. I think our interest really began in April 2012, when whilst on holiday in Devon we picked up a leaflet advertising a Dinosaur World in Torquay.

It was just under £6 per person with 2s and under getting in free. I think it was because it was Easter but the children were given a sheet with activities/questions to answer from information they could find if they looked. At the end they received a badge, a certificate and a dinosaur tooth. We also bought a family photo of us sat on a dinosaur.

There was lots of facts and things to discover, and ALL the children found something that interested them/they could interact with – which wasn’t easy when they (then) ranged between 2 and 15.

Recently we took the 3 youngest to London.

It just made sense that whilst we were there we would visit the Natural History Museum – as there are Dinosaurs there!

The Natural History museum is FREE, and run by charitable donations. You can purchase a guide or a children’s guide (with puzzles) for ONLY £5 each.

The one thing I would do is, to go to  the Dinosaurs first, as we looked around other parts first. We had to queue to get into the dinosaur area.

It was really amazing, but very busy (it was a weekend in August). I did take photos but it was so crowded and the light not right for my unexpert eye that they aren’t worth sharing. I do have a couple though.

There was so much detail and facts – it was absolutely amazing!

There was a lot of pushing and people standing very close, and others just wanting to barge past. We couldn’t easily just get out, and it was all a bit much for our youngest. Well worth a visit though.

Thank you for this lovely gift of Dinosaurs from Tracey A Belcher
