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.

Dear London Mums
Half Term is almost here. Another school holiday so soon? This means mums have to turn into entertainers once again.
For children 4+ i recommend to take them to see the new Muppets movie out on 10th February. And check my exclusive clip about my personal encounter with Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog who visited the UK to promote the movie https://londonmumsmagazine.com/2012/the-muppets-are-back-for-good
It’s also Valentine and we have put together a unique Valentine’s Gift Guide for Him and for Her.
