To celebrate the unveiling of Prospect Park playground at Battersea Power Station, Uber Boat by Thames Clippers asked us to round up the most exciting playscapes on their route.
Home to what is honestly one of the best playground structures I’ve ever seen in my long and eventful playground-critiquing career.
All that was left was for me to get over myself and my crippling fear of… well, most things, and just get on the sodding boat.
This particular day was so unbearably hot there was literally only about 10 minutes where at least one of us wasn’t crying or shouting.
This month, stay at home… or don’t. Whether you want virtual amusements or real-world adventure, we’ve got you covered – plus all the dates your cultural diary needs.
Head to the Netherlands’ second-largest city for pancake cruises, giant dolls’ houses, inhabitable art installations and maritime fun.
Get out more this month with open-air theatre, water play at the museum, outdoor cinema and family street parties.
Sticking three under-fours in an open-top boat with no one but ourselves to save them when we inevitably hit something felt like an empowering life choice.
We spent a blissful hour post-play doing what we’d all secretly been itching to do whilst bleating along to Baa, Baa Black Sheep – running around in the sunshine up on the deck.
Stay on the sunny side up this Easter with toddler-friendly art installations, interactive baby theatre and egg-citing family festivals.
