Welcome to our weekly round-up, where we like to look back on all the exciting things that have happened this week. From new attractions opening, to cool places to visit and add to your bucket list, we've rounded everything up into one handy post for you! 

This week we've all been busy enjoying the lovely sunshine (fingers crossed it carries on!), and we've seen some awesome attractions that we need to add to our to list of places to visit over the summer holidays. We also saw a very special birthday from one of our favourite zoos and a special pregnancy announcement too! 

  1. The LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort Competition

    Fancy winning tickets to The LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort and a family overnight stay at Holiday Inn Express T5? We’ve teamed up with LEGOLAND Windsor Resort to celebrate their 25th birthday with a birthday bash to remember! The competition winner will be announced on Friday 18th June, so you’ve still got time to enter - head to our Facebook page to find out all of the details! 

  2. Disney Enchanted sequel

    📸 Dublin's Q102 

    Hands up if you love the Disney film Enchanted? Well take at these awesome photos from Dublin where Disney are on hand and building the set for the sequel! Whilst the much-anticipated sequel doesn’t have a release date as of yet, you can see that the set is really starting to come together, and bonus points for anyone who can spot the Disney-related puns in the shop names!

  3. Chester Zoo 90th Birthday

    Happy Birthday, Chester Zoo! The incredible zoo turned 90 years old this week, and we were so shocked that the zoo has been open for so long! Like any good birthday, the zoo celebrated with some tasty treats, so take a look at this yummy looking ice cream, we might just have to visit for the ice cream alone! 

  4. Grays Beach Riverside Park

    If the warm weather has got you wanting to visit an outdoor adventure park or playground, then check this one to add to your list! Grays Beach Riverside Park has been really busy revamping this year, and their brand new pirate ship and castle look absolutely incredible! They’ve also included a Mind Charity mural filled with wonderful, bright colours and we can’t wait to pay it a visit.

  5. Jubilee Pool, Penzance  

     Check out Jubilee Pool in Penzance, the UK’s largest outdoor Art Deco lido! The pool is even filled with seawater, and the unique triangle shape means it’s set overlooking the sea. The best part of the lido? Parts of it are even heated! 

  6. The Black Country Living Museum, West Midlands


    If you’ve ever taken a trip to the awesome Black Country Living Museum, then you’ll know just how tasty their fish and chips are, some would even say the best in the region! But the real question is, what would you have as a side, pickled onion or a pickled egg? 

  7. Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash birthday announcement 


    Everyone's favourite celebrity mum Stacey Solomon and her partner Joe Swash have just announced they’ve got another baby on the way! We’re so excited for them and we just love this little family photo to celebrate their announcement! 

    That's all from this week, and we hope everyone has enjoyed their week! Don't forget, we'll be back next with another round-up to look back on the week ahead.
