With British Summer Time coming to an end, I thought I'd put together a list of things to do in London, while the daylight and warmth stick around for a bit longer. Also, moving into Daylight Savings Time - a few things to do in the coming months! Considering there is never a shortage of fun days/nights out in London, it can sometimes be a bit daunting trying to figure out where to go, where to eat, or what to see. So here are two scenario days for you:
RAIN: My favourite place to go is Westfield London. You'll find shopping, amazing restaurants/food counters and even a city built for kids. Yes, it can get quite expensive, so if I'm skint and looking to save then I head straight to the V&A museum. Entry is free and Sevy loves wandering around to look at everything from painting to couture dresses.
SUN: We usually head over to Victoria Park for a wicked brunch at People's Park Tavern followed by a little fun for Sevy at the playground. There are always a few games of football happening, lots of bike riders and a couple cute dogs. Alternatively, we love to jump in the car and explore the Essex country roads, stopping off at whichever quirky pub we find along the way.
Once September hits, our family can be found outside and attending themed venues/events. Here is a list of some of those events you can find us at: Foxes Farm Produce (pumpkin picking), Marsh Farm Halloween Weekend, Alexandra Palace Fireworks for Guy Fawkes Day, Oxford Circus/Carnaby Street Christmas Lights Turn On, Local Lights Turn On, Winter Wonderland Hyde Park, Epping Ongar Christmas Railway, Epping Forest Santa's Grotto and above all else - Football. It's football season and we love going as a family, especially as the air turns crisp and the hot chocolate starts flowing.
