The Roald Dahl Museum in Bucks is the perfect place to introduce the little ones to the writer’s classic stories. There are craft activities, storytelling and galleries depicting Dahl’s most famous creations, plus it's a haven of chocolate with the doorway to one room comprised of giant Wonka bars. For grown-ups, and new this year, you can see the garden hut where RD wrote daily for 35 years, including his tatty armchair, hand-made green baize writer's slant and collection of inspirational curios - including a hip bone which he kept after an operation and a KitKat foil ball fashioned out of hundreds of foil wrappers from his favourite chocolate bar. You could also take some time to explore Dahl’s village haunts, by way of a marked-out the Village Trail.
