Hanover Gate Playground in Regents Park
The Hanover Gate playground, located on the west side of Regents Park, has just recently been renovated and now includes two different play areas: a traditional playground for younger children and a new timber tree-house section for older, more adventurous kids. It's also a great little spot to spend a sunny afternoon because it's right ...

BEAUTY & CARE
A possible saviour called Cupcake
My friend calls winter 'soft-play-season' and she dreads it every year.  Year one of having children I thought she was just being miserable, and I loved watching my baby boy smile as some slightly clownish adults sang nursery rhymes to him in a church hall.  In Year two I was too preoccupied with the new ...

Under the Sea in 3D!
Taking young kids to the cinema can be risky business.  No matter how great the film is, it will probably end up being too long to keep your kids' attention, they'll likely spill the popcorn, talk too much and too loudly, and need several trips to the toilet.  (Can you tell I've learned the hard ...

Princess Diana Memorial Playground
One of the most well-known of London's many playgrounds is the Princess Diana Memorial Playground in Kensington Gardens. Known to local mums as the "pirate ship" because of the giant wooden pirate ship in the center, this playground is certainly worth the hype. There's a 'beach' of sand surrounding the pirate ship, as well as ...

Bugs, Frogs and Fish at the London Zoo...
The ZSL London Zoo is not the largest zoo I've ever seen, nor does it have a very impressive range of large animals (no elephants or rhinos, etc.).  But, for a zoo in the middle of such a dense city like London, the zoo does exactly as it should: it places emphasis on the smaller ...

Inn the Park!
My husband took our little family to this restaurant on Mother's Day this year. It was a lovely (but cold) day, and was a perfect setting for a Mother's Day brunch. Inn the Park is, as the name implies, in the middle of the lovely St. James's Park, overlooking 'duck lake'. A couple weeks ago, ...

Natural History Museum
It is a marvel of a museum, a truly beautiful building with extraordinary exhibits. The Natural History Museum here in London first opened its doors in 1881, and his home to some of the most fascinating and rare objects (like the heaviest woolly mammoth tusks ever found and a skeleton of an extinct sea cow)! ...
