What’s on at the weekend – 31 March, 1 April 2012

Spring has most definitely sprung, and with it a wave of new exhibitions are opening across London.  If an exhibition doesn’t take your fancy, then celebrate Easter with a chocolate-related activity – either way, we’ve got some suggestions…

Crystal Palace Park

After our successful trip to Greenwich Park a couple of weeks ago, this week we set off to explore another of London’s fantastic, green spaces: Crystal Palace Park.  Although the Crystal Palace that gave the area its name is long gone, the Park retains a number of quirky attractions that make it worth a visit.

Saatchi Gallery

We went a bit off piste this week and took a trip to the Saatchi Gallery.  You might think that’s not an obvious place for a day trip with your baby, and you may be right.  But it was Mother’s Day so I got to choose the venue and, as it happens, the rest of the family had a great time too.

Greenwich Park and National Maritime Museum

If you live in London, the chances are that you have been to Greenwich at some point.  One of the capital’s prettiest and most historic areas, with its bustling market, quirky boutiques and riverside location – it’s an appealing, if touristy, place to hang out.  But unlike many areas of London, Greenwich’s charm only increases once you have children, with its fantastic park and Royal Museums offering all you could need for a family day out.  The Borough was bestowed with Royal status this year to mark the Queen’s Jubilee and Greenwich Park will host the Olympic equestrian events this Summer, making 2012 the perfect opportunity to discover (or rediscover) Greenwich’s charms.  There’s too much to do in one day, so this time our babydaytrip took in Greenwich Park and the National Maritime Museum.

A springtime stroll: Kenwood House and Hampstead Heath

A springtime stroll: Kenwood House and Hampstead Heath

The unexpectedly clement weather over the past week spurred us to set off for a babydaytrip in the fresh air, after weeks of sheltering from the winter chill in museums and shopping centres.  When a kind friend proposed an outing to Hampstead Heath and Kenwood House (the latter being somewhere I’d always intended to visit, but hadn’t quite got around to it), we eagerly took up the offer.
