Badby Wood

Hudson and I headed for a walk to Badby Wood. Usually, on trips like this I keep Hudson in the pram and he isn’t a fan of walking but as these woods are so small I kept him out and I’m glad I did as it gave us the chance to wander off the main paths.

Woburn Safari Park

What makes this Park so special is the fact that they have the road safari. This is optional but I highly recommend it. When you arrive at the entrance you show your ticket and go straight into the park where the animals are. Many are free to roam and so can come right up to your car, others are behind a fence.
