So when we renewed our Merlin Annual Passes (August 2018) we went for the Premium pass. This is because at the time of renewal is was on a deal that was hard to refuse 13 months for the price of 12 – at a discounted rate – and came with a photo pass for all parks! Carry on reading to find out the perks of a Premium pass, why we benefited from an upgrade and how much we have done in the last year with our passes.

We always like to go somewhere new, have a little adventure and see what we can find in the UK. This week we asked Twitter where we should go and @BritVoyage (her blog is here) suggested the Forest of Bowland. I didn’t realise we had been there before, but only a small part of it, so I had a little look online at what is there and well, this is what we did…

As explained in our previous post ‘Why Denny’s Diner?‘ we enjoy dining at Denny’s and we love the journeys we have to make to physically get there too. This post is going to be all about our experience at Denny’s Glasgow. I will tell you now that our recent visit was gifted, as Denny’s very kindly paid for all of our food. However we loved Denny’s before this, and we still love them! We would have still visited Denny’s and we would have still posted this blog even if we had paid for the meals ourselves.

Denny’s Diner – Americas Diner – is a great place to go to eat. You can have breakfast all day long, which means there’s never a bad time to order pancakes! You don’t have to want breakfast to eat at Denny’s and thats why we love it. If you’re craving a nice cooked breakfast with pancakes on the side but your friends want a burger or a chicken skillet then great news… Denny’s offer all of these options and more, check out their menu here.

We like to fill January with random days out, especially with ‘January Blues’ it is nice to stay busy. So we randomly came across this ‘secret nuclear bunker’ online – we sometimes just Google ‘things to do in …….’ and pick an area just to see if there’s anything we’ve not done.

The Hack Green Secret Nuclear Bunker is a former government-owned nuclear bunker located at Hack Green, Cheshire.
