I have done a fair bit of travelling over the years, but London always holds a special place in my heart.
I love the hustle and bustle, the eclectic range of people and the wonderful architecture the city has to offer.
We are only about a 30min train ride from central London but don’t visit that often as squeezing on and off the trains with all the children is no mean feat! For us Southbank is always the perfect place as it is only two overground trains away and directly outside Waterloo station.
We went to celebrate my eldest turning 18 and we knew there would be plenty of things for us all to do once we got there.
We we not disappointed as we got there and after a short walk came across a super cool exhibition that offered free badge making and colouring for the children.
Once we were refuelled we went exploring and found some cool brightly coloured plastic strips that they had great fun running in and out of, a great sandpit that they had a great time digging in, and our usual trip to the park.
Number two loves scooting and skate boarding so we spent a good while by the skatepark watching all the tricks.
After lunch we spent our last bit of time there taking in the sights whilst number one had her first ‘legal’ drink!
A wonderful day was had by all and we will be coming back very soon to check out the Carston Holler exhibition at the Hayward Gallery which looks fantastic.
