Green Park and St James’s Park

At last! Summer is here (even if it may have departed again by the time I publish this post) and so what could be better than a picnic in the park?  Before Jubilee fever grips the country this weekend, we decided to explore two of central London’s most famous Royal open spaces: Green Park and neighbouring St James’s Park.

Tate Modern

Tate Modern

Tate Modern’s one of my favourite places in London – I’ve whiled away many a pleasant hour there in the past, but haven’t managed to visit quite as often since MJ arrived on the scene.  Last week, however, we were looking for a babydaytrip destination that would accommodate and entertain four adults and four babies (with four buggies) on a rainy day, and the spacious, centrally located gallery seemed a perfect option.

Battersea Park and Battersea Park Children’s Zoo

If you read this blog regularly you will know that we generally try to review destinations that are free or have low cost admission.  This week, however, our trip coincided with a special occasion and so we decided to splash out on a visit to the (really quite reasonably priced, all things considered) Battersea Park Children’s Zoo.

Dulwich – Picture Gallery and Park

Dulwich – Picture Gallery and Park

We were hoping for a bit of fresh air this week, but the incessant rain meant another museum-based babydaytrip.  Nevermind, there are more museums and galleries in London than you can shake a stick at and this week it’s another good one, Dulwich Picture Gallery.  The rain cleared whilst we were inside the Gallery, so we headed across the road for a stroll in Dulwich Park once we were done – bonus!
