This summer we spent nearly a whole week staying in Greenwich on a trip to London, somewhere we had never been before. I was so surprised at how much there was to do there and especially as a family.
When we started planning our trip to London in August and our stay in Greenwich, we didn’t really know what there was to do or what would be suitable for Erin. However, we found that actually, there was a lot to do and a lot of great museums to visit, including the National Maritime Museum.

One of my absolute favourite places to visit is the zoo and luckily, John and Erin love them just as much as I do. Just over a week ago it was John’s birthday and we went away to London for the night using a Buy A Gift Voucher for a hotel stay. We needed something to do while we were there though so we decided that London Zoo was the way to go. Using Buy A Gift again, we chose the Entry To ZSL Zoo For 2 Adults experience which costs £48.60.

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!

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
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
AD | Gifted John and I got married in Florida in 2013. While we were there we went to Ripley’s Believe It Or Not and it was so much fun. We recently had the opportunity to visit Ripley’s London and we couldn’t wait! Ripley’s London can be found smack bang in the middle of Piccadilly Circus. When we arrived Erin had just fallen asleep! Typical and very bad timing. However, we were heading home that day so we couldn’t wait for her to wake up and it’s a good job we didn’t as she ended
