The sun is shining, spring is on the way and the Easter holidays already feel like they’re sneaking up on us! I know the Easter break is a bit of a funny one with some people (like us) having the first two weeks of April off and others having the more traditional one week before / one week after break or perhaps even just Easter weekend and the following week. What this does mean is that I’m quite conscious of making the most of our first week of holidays when, perhaps, places will be just that little bit quieter.
In an ideal world I’d love to make full use of our Family & Friends Railcard and plan a day or two in London, though realistically I think this might be a job for May half-term. I took all three kids down to London on my own last October half term but really it was a quick “in and out” for a blog event so we didn’t explore. If I’m honest I’m not sure I’d have been brave enough on my own with the three of them but it proved we could manage the train and negotiate the underground together.
I’m feeling like some sort of super hero for getting all three kids to the #NutmegSS17 event in London. They’ve all behaved really well and we’re safely back on the train home now. They’ve definitely proved that we can manage this now (though it would definitely have even easier if Daddy was with us!)
Since then I’ve kept on at Dave that I’d love to take them for a day or two, Ben in particular is keen to see Big Ben and I know Chloe would be excited to see Buckingham Palace and of course it would be lovely to take them to see a show. I think if we were all going then What the Ladybird Heard would be a big hit but, for the older two, then it would have to be Matilda – Ben is a big Roald Dahl fan now and I don’t mind admitting that I’d love to see it myself! We’d have to squeeze in a trip to the National History Musem and maybe Madame Tussauds – I loved it there when I was a kid!
What would be top of your list for a child-friendly trip to London?
