Raising tiny Londoners wouldn’t be half as hilarious without all the family-friendly hangouts, independent kids’ shops and tailored-to-tots activities that we’ve all missed like crazy over these last few miserable months.
Big, bleak, beautiful and very zen, as long as you ignore the whinings of your bored three and a half year old who isn’t putting up with anymore of this “walking in nature” bullshit.
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.
Have your say on the capital’s best family hangouts, activities and shops before June the 28th.
Reached the end of our first family-friendly London list? Here’s another bunch of ideas for those days when boredom levels are high and inspiration is low.
This Tudor-palace-meets-Art-Deco-mansion might look like it’s in the arse end of nowhere (and ok it kind of is), but it’s still only in Zone 4!
Head to the Netherlands’ second-largest city for pancake cruises, giant dolls’ houses, inhabitable art installations and maritime fun.
This coastal gem boasts real-life giants, an immersive jaunt through the history of young Dutch literature and probably the best play cafe we’ve ever been to.
This month, indulge in tasteful soft play down the pub, enjoy a round of family-friendly bingo, see Andy Warhol’s drag queens and immerse yourself Among the Trees.
Highlights include Grandma’s caravan, but I recommend checking her eyes and ears and mouth look human-sized before going in there…
