“So last night we went to the utterly breathtaking @lumagicauk light display at @wwtlondon and it was just lovely. We got a nice hot mulled wine on the way in and then explored the beautiful light trail. It was so beautiful and peaceful too. It’s the perfect place to visit for grown ups and children too. Joshua has obviously outgrown many Christmas events for little children so finding beautiful events like this is perfect. What an incredible, incredible day out!?? “
