LONDON: EAT SEE PLAY SHOP SLEEP OUT OF TOWN

Paddington Street Gardens and Playground

Paddington Street playground

The playground in Paddington Street Gardens is one of my favourites in Central London.  I love that it’s tucked away off the beaten path in Marylebone, slightly hidden unless you know it’s there. It means that it never usually gets too crowded, and you get the sense that all the kids there are from the neighbourhood. The playground has been recently renovated so all the equipment is new and the grounds are well looked after. In redesigning the playground they did a good job of catering to both babies and bigger kids as they have a variety of toys to play on. Plus, I love when playgrounds are covered in that rubbery flooring — it’s nice for babies to crawl around on, and means safer falling for the older ones.  Not to mention… it’s located just off my favourite street in London — Marylebone High Street. So it’s a great spot to take a break/have lunch/let the kids run around whilst visiting the many great shops on the high street. Just turn off Marylebone High Street onto Moxon street and walk to the end (or you can access the gardens from Paddington Street.) For more details, click here.

We went to Villandry, the gorgeous gourmet food-shop and restaurant on Great Portland Street in central London. Stylish décor, buzzing ambience, great food, ...

Encounters with the Big Cats at London Zoo - Regents Park
London Zoo in Regent's Park is the world's oldest scientific zoo. It also happens to be my kids number one favourite place to visit in London. Wandering around this familiar local haunt it's hard to believe that the doors were first opened to the public way back in 1847. At this time some of the ...
