What’s Good Britain

Britain! What’s good?

Sometimes we can find ourselves struggling to find things to do. Whether it’s places to see as a family or things to do with friends.

The truth is there is that much to do and see in Britain that we are usually very spoilt for choice and/or don’t know where to start!

Finding things to do and see in Britain has been fun and exciting. Especially when it comes to places that we haven’t been before.

We love food and having lots of fun, no doubt that you do too. We decided to have a wander around the Britain and have a look at some of the low rated places and top rated places…

…From eating out, crazy golf to sight seeing, theme parks and much more!

We have a look around Britain for some hidden gems and well known attractions to see what we love and what could be improved.

What’s Good Britain – Fat Hippo

Fat Hippo has many venues across the UK.

We visited Fat Hippo in Nottingham. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The venue was very interesting looking and the menu had a great variety. We chose to try their most popular burger on the menu. It was delicious.

There is seating outside and we couldn’t help but take a photograph of their sign!

If you have tried their burgers then you will get it…We absolutely love the sign.

The children menu was a great little touch to the place and made it a great place to bring the family. It had a fun little menu to choose from and children could draw their burger then colour it in.

The Lost City

What’s Good Britain – The Lost City

The Lost City is another great place to go with the family or even friends. We visited the one in Nottingham first to see what all the fuss was about!

When we arrived it was very busy and we waited about 10 minutes but this might of been because we went during the school holidays.

Because it was so busy, it was fun but felt quite rushed and there was also periods of waiting around for the next hole which was quite frustrating.

Our overall experience was good though and we thought it was reasonably priced too.

There is also a bar area if you fancy a bite to eat and drink. We didn’t go to the bar but I am sure will we next time and keep you posted on our experience.

The Lost City has 2 other venues and you can find out more here
