London is probably the best city in the world in terms of activities for families and children including lots of free activities and events. We list here lots of initiatives that we believe London Mums and their children from babies to teenagers would enjoy especially at the most entertaining places such as the Science Museum, The V&A, Kew Gardens, Kensington Palace, Hyde Park, Richmond Park, Greenwich, West End shows, the London Eye, the London Aquarium, Kingston upon Thames, Chelsea, SouthBank and so much more.

Spring Cleaning with Shaun the Sheep at Mudchute Farm

Spring Cleaning with Shaun the Sheep at Mudchute Farm

Mudchute Park & Farm is London’s Best Kept Secret. And not many people know that it is the farm that inspired Aardman’s genius animation series Shaun the Sheep. We spent half day at Mudchute and had a private tour with a charming tour guide who told us all about the animals in their care. The kids loved touching and playing with the animals and finding all about one of the largest city farms in London (32 acres of countryside in the middle of the Isle of Dogs, South East London). Mudchute is free and open most of the year but as a charity it needs donations to keep surviving. Kids can experience close encounters with friendly fur and feathered creatures and book special events for a small (but important) fee.

West End Show review: WICKED

Mar 19 2014

Musicals these days are really incredibly entertaining. The balance between compelling storytelling and special effects is just perfect and a great example of that is WICKED, the multi award-winning musical that tells the incredible untold story of the Witches of Oz, shown at London’s Apollo Victoria Theatre.
