We all arrive in Pickering in the afternoon and check in to the White Swan Inn – Mum & Dad have an ace bed with steps to climb into and we are tucked up in the sofa bed in their room – the kind lady on reception gave us our map of the town with interesting facts on it so we had a mini treasure hunt. We also luckily found that the castle at Pickering was open so we had a look there too. It is a cool medieval ruin with a tower and used to be a hunting lodge for a King! We also spotted the steam railway station and jumped about until we were told that if we were good we could go on the train on Thursday which is our last day but it is Halloween and there was going to be something special happening. We had our tea early in the bar so Mum & Dad could relax with a bottle of wine and chat (BORING!) so we tucked into the DVD library and snuggled up and watched Harry Potter (NOT BORING – AT ALL!) and the railway that was in the film was the one in … Pickering!!!
