Culture & Attractions
Muddy says: Handbags and art are two of my specialist subjects so I'm a huge fan of Debra Frances Bean's quirky work that combines the two. She's now opened a gorgeous gallery in Amersham.
Muddy says: Muddy Award-winning Dantzig, sitting pretty on the edge of the Cotswolds, is a beautiful commercial gallery that specialises in 20th century modern art.
Muddy says: One of the UK's top micro pig breeders, Kew Little Pigs in Amersham, South Bucks, also offers piggy 'experiences' - school visits, parties, PR and even TV appearances.
Muddy says: If you have a potential actor in the family, take them to the Pegasus, a theatre by and for children and young people. An inspirational space for kids to get creative or enjoy watching theatre made especially for them.
Muddy says: Not only can you explore the museum's collection of local artefacts, enjoy their visiting exhibitions and get hands-on in the interactive Roald Dahl Gallery, you can now get married there too.
Muddy says: A fabulous compact museum all about Dahl and his famous characters, with a packed schedule of activities including storytelling and arts and crafts.
Muddy says: A world-class museum that hosts loads of events and is available to hire to give your wedding, Christmas party, reception or whatever, a unique backdrop and sprinkle of magic.
Muddy says: If you can't jet off to the mountains, try the next best thing at Snozone Milton Keynes where you can ski on real snow, have lessons or just go for fun. They'll even bring the snow to you for a snowy event or party.
Muddy says: A large site in the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside for learning all-terrain driving plus corporate events and team building activities such as archery, quad biking, axe throwing and zorb football!
Muddy says: Not many activities that can involve a family from toddler through to teen and beyond, but the adrenaline-fuelled tree top adventure of Go Ape in the beautiful Black Park, south Bucks, is one of them.
Muddy says: It's not just about the Westgate you know! The Oxford Castle Quarter offers dining, outdoor cinema, theatre and events, and the small matter of a 1000 year old castle to explore.
Muddy says: Firefly events are the experts across Oxon and Berks for pop-up cinema events - they'll sort the chairs, lighting, screen and catering (and yes, they'll even bring the popcorn).
Muddy says: A former Muddy Stilettos Award winner for Best Art Gallery and one of the most respected art galleries in the region, Carina Haslam Art exhibits work at the Saatchi Gallery, the Affordable Art Fairs around the country and holds regular exhibitions throughout the year at its base in Great Missenden.
