Lapworth Museum of Geology and Winterbourne Botanic Garden

On a visit to Birmingham, we stopped for a visit to the free museum, the Lapworth Museum of Geology. First we stopped to admire the bear (there is a trail around Birmingham this summer!).
The museum holds one of the UK’s most outstanding rock, fossil and mineral collections, including dinosaur footprints including those made by large herbivores, such as an Allosaurus' skull and a woolly mammoth skull.We spent about an hour and a half looking round. P enjoyed completing a free trail where she had to look for certain items in the museum.
 Then we walked to the Winterbourne Botanic Garden where we had a cup of tea and cake in their cafe before having a quick explore of the gardens before it closed. Whilst, perhaps not for toddlers, P and E loved the bridge and stepping stones around the pond. We were followed round by a very friendly cat!
