Family backpacking fun at the Church Farm Museum

Family backpacking fun at the Church Farm Museum
Backpacking, as is becoming increasingly clear, is no longer the fare of soon-to-be students, unsure of what subject they want to study at university and who are off on a voyage of discovery so they can find out that maths actually is the route they should be taking.

These days, everyone's off on a cheap travel holiday, staying in hostels along the way - from grandparents and recession-busted young professionals suffering from redundancy to whole families, babies included. Luckily for all these people, there are an endless amount of activities to take part in that don't necessarily involve drinking heavily on a sun-drenched beach.

Take, for example, Lincolnshire's award-winning Church Farm Museum, where fun for all the family can be had. On the weekend of September 12th and 13th between the hours of 10:00 and 16:00 BST, a Heritage Day is being put on, which will feature blacksmith demonstrations and free guided tours of the museum, as well as a chance to meet its live-in cook who spends her days baking up a storm in the farmhouse kitchen.

Classics and Collections day is more one for the dads and sons - although mothers and sisters might get a kick out of it too - with vintage vehicles and cars from days gone by displayed for retro fans everywhere. Motorbikes and tractors can also be seen and games and craft activities will be put on to entertain one and all. Handmade chocolates, provided by Chocolate Together, are also available to buy for those with a sweet tooth.ADNFCR-2435-ID-19350285-ADNFCR
