T-REX

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE - DIS­COVER BOU­TIQUE

THE di­nosaurs are in­vad­ing west Lon­don next month, be­fore head­ing out to ram­page across the coun­try for the rest of the year — all as part of new an­i­ma­tronic ex­pe­ri­ence, Juras­sic King­dom. A to­tal of 30 mod­els and in­stal­la­tions will be ap­pear­ing in var­i­ous parks, start­ing with the grounds of Oster­ley House in Lon­don.

Vis­i­tors can see a tricer­atops with its young and a diplodocus towering 16 me­tres up among the trees. A screech­ing pterosaur takes to the skies, a spit­ting pachy­cephalosaurus de­fends it­self and l ast but never least, an 18 me­tre Tyran­nosaurus Rex proves why it’s still the fear­some king.

Juras­sic King­dom opens on April 1 be­fore tour­ing the coun­try un­til Oc­to­ber, in­clud­ing stops in Bris­tol, Manch­ester, Black­pool, Glas­gow, New­cas­tle, Leeds and Birm­ing­ham. Tick­ets cost from £11.50 for adults and £9.50 for chil­dren. Three-yearolds and un­der go free.

FROM vin­tage to vinyl, books to bou­tiques, it’s now eas­ier to dis­cover some of Not­ting­ham’s best in­de­pen­dent shops with the launch of a new trail.

Avail­able as a free Guidigo app (www.guidigo.com) or a pock­et­sized fold-out map from the tourist in­for­ma­tion cen­tre, the ‘Hid­den’ trail picks out 10 ar­eas in the city cen­tre from the buzzing Old Mar­ket Square and qui­eter Cob­den Cham­bers in Hock­ley to the West End Ar­cade, tak­ing you past the cheese and beer of Fly­ing Horse Walk, the Vic­to­rian mu­sic hall on St James’s Street and the An­glo-Saxon heart of the city at the Lace Mar­ket, along with enough clothes bou­tiques to re­fill your wardrobe.
