Places to go while on maternity leave – my list

I realised that even though I have 5 months left of my maternity leave, time is passing quickly. Weeks go by and I find I haven’t been anywhere other than Maidenhead town centre or my local park!

So I thought I’d write a post to remind myself of all the places nearby I could go – as well as the places further afield that I would like to visit. If you have any pram-friendly suggestions to add please do – and if you’re a local friend who would like to accompany me on a weekday trip, let me know!

Local places to visit

    • I’ve been to a lot of the places on the list, there are only a few new ones. It’s really a list to remind me of things I could do, for those moments when I’m lacking inspiration 🙂 Pet shops and aquariums, that’s a good one!
