Our Greater Anglia Rail Adventure To London

As a family we don’t always get to spend the most time together. John works 6 days a week at least 2 weeks of the month and Erin is often asleep even before he gets home. Life tends to get in the way a lot of the time but Greater Anglia gave us the opportunity to have a fun packed day out together as part of their #railadventure campaign. When it came time to decide where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do it took me a while. Greater Anglia cover quite a large area so there was

Family Dining At TGI Friday’s Leicester Square

Whenever we go to London I always try to find somewhere family friendly for us to eat. I’m a pretty fussy eater in general, Erin… well, we can never really tell what kind of mood Erin will be in and luckily, John is happy with anything so we need somewhere that suits us all. Having been to a few different branches of TGI Friday’s I realised not too long ago that we had never been to one in London. On our visit just before our holiday we visited the TGI Friday’s Leicester Square. When we arrived the restaurant was pretty

Overnight Family Break in London with Buy A Gift

Before going on our family holiday to Majorca we ended up having a couple of days in London first. Engineering works on the train lines meant that train tickets were much cheaper on the Saturday rather than the Sunday so we decided to stay an extra night. However, this also meant that we needed a hotel for a night and while there is so much choice in London I like to stay in a chain where possible so I know what to expect. This time, we booked a Overnight Family Break in London at a Novotel Hotel through Buyagift.com. After the

London: A City Worth Exploring

Over the years John and I have been to London quite a few times. Last year we went at least 4 or 5 times. Even though Erin is only 2 we want her to experience different places in the UK, especially cities as diverse as London. We only have one trip planned this year for a day before we go on holiday in April but we have a lifetime to see as many things as possible. So, with that, I wanted to talk a bit about some of the things I want to do in London on our next few

Hotel Review: Premier Inn London City (Tower Hill)

I never like to stay in the same place twice when we go to London. I don’t know why. I guess it would make sense to stick with a hotel if we really like it but I like to stay in different areas where possible and discover something new. On our last trip we stayed in the Premier Inn London City which is in the Tower Hill area of London. Premier Inn London City is about a 20 minute walk from London Liverpool Street if you fancy walking but it’s also only 2 stops away on the tube. I made

Diana Memorial Playground And Kensington Gardens, London

Now that Erin is nearly 2 and running around all over the place going away with her is not nearly as easy as it used to be. She used to be quite happy sitting in her pushchair wherever we went and wouldn’t be too bothered about getting out. However, now she wants to be out all of the time and gets really frustrated if she’s confined for too long. Visiting London means Erin has to stay in her pushchair while we’re going from place to place on the tube and again if we’re in shops etc. John and I have

Hackney City Farm, London

We have been to London quite a few times this year and have always been mega busy with either pre-booked activities or other plans I have made! The last time we went we were there for 4 days and 3 nights meaning we had quite a lot of time to fill. London can be very expensive though with meals out for all of that time as well as the accommodation and travel costs both to get there and on the tube. Recently, I have been trying to find more and more free or super cheap things to do in London

Dragonflies, Christmas Trees And The Handmade Fair

Last weekend I headed off to London so that I could go to Kirstie Allsopp’s The Handmade Fair at Hampton Court with my sister and her fiance. Honestly, I am not a crafty person whatsoever but I had been really excited about this for months and months. The Handmade Fair is an outdoor event so with it being in the middle of September, we were expecting the worst. There are various sessions you can attend throughout the day but you need tickets for each. You can either book these at the time of buying your ticket or you can hope
