How we do Halloween, when we don’t do Halloween.
CELEBRATIONS
As a child, growing up in a part of South London which was, at the time (early 90’s) rather under-represented, Halloween was a given. Halloween seemed to be everywhere, and everyone celebrated it.

The Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace is a hidden gem in the heart of London. Perfect for half term or one to add to the bucket list. Lara’s family visited this summer and realised it ticked all the boxes — culture, history, horses, cars, carriages, and stories that have inspired fairytales! It’s a semi outdoor museum, so it’s easy to relax at, as well. Book a space and visit The Queen’s working stables, it’s a wonderful day in London.
