  • Beamish museum   7 years 19 weeks ago

    Beamish, Britain's favourite open air museum, is set in over 300 acres of beautiful countryside.
    Step on board trams and be transported into the past. Visit real mines, pits, working towns and railways. Buy sweets at a real olde world shop. This is great for kids learning about history as you can see how real people used to live. Taken from website "The Town represents a typical north eastern market town in the years leading up to the First World War. Trams rattle down the cobbled street, carrying visitors on their journey into the past.

    At the west end of The Town is a Victorian park, with ornamental flower beds and a bandstand from Saltwell Park, Gateshead. Brass band concerts are held here on some summer Sundays."

  • Twinlakes theme park   7 years 19 weeks ago

    This place is great and very cheap. It has different things for all kinds of weather. A zoo, a boating lake, outdoor rides for small and older children, indoor soft play areas, indoor rides, so much to do in one day.

  • Great Central Railway steam train Thomas the tank engine   7 years 28 weeks ago

    This is great fun for kids and adults. For approx £12 you can have your own little train compartment and ride on the Thomas the Tank engine steam train. There are many events on this railway which runs a service from Loughborogh to Leicester. They run family events such as a Santa special train, plus elegant dining for adults only, Halloween trains, etc. We took our son to see Thomas. The staff were friendly and the train ride was short, so very manageable with small children.

    The engines can get quite noisy. If you have children who are scared of trains, loud noises, then please don't take them. Unfortunately our son does not cope well with loud noises, and the only part he enjoyed was sitting on the train in a cosy compartment rather than meeting Thomas to have his photo taken. I couldn't agree with him more!

  • The Secret Gardens of sandwich   7 years 28 weeks ago

    "Situated in the Old Gatehouse you will find the rather special Tea Rooms. With crockery, cake stands and silverware sourced from The Savoy Hotel, the Tea Rooms evoke the elegant Edwardian pastime of taking tea."
    This is such a cute little find. Although it is a tiny venue and we had to park our double pushchair outside, the staff really made the difference here. They offered to look after our pushchair out the back of the courtyard, and offered some juices to our little boys. They brought us a highchair before we even asked for it. We were so looked after.

    They addressed our little boys and brought them tiny cups and sacuers to drink from, as well as offering them a mini cream tea. That way us 4 adults could indulge in afternoon tea without worrying about the children. I had a choclate afternoon tea which was divine...chocolate
    scones with clotted cream, brioche and
    chocolate sandwiches, seriously chocolatey
    cake and lots more. The people were welcoming and I felt like we were royalty. Plus, I fell in love with the decor. Little princesses will love this. My boys stole my chocolate sandwiches!

  • Belgique Cafe   7 years 40 weeks ago

    The array of cakes is fantastic, I only popped in for coffee with a pregnant friend but couldn't get passed the chocolate mouse (in a chocolate cup), it was delicious - as was the blueberry cheesecake. Not too expensive, either. Staff were ok but a little slow and the toilets were slightly smelly but if you're in the area perfect for a quick coffee-stop. Right near one end of Epping Forest too.

  • Mussels & Steak Bar Edinburgh   7 years 44 weeks ago

    Despite being on the edge of the normally rather lairy Grassmarket they have a strict policy about not admitting drunk people or hen/stag parties, so the atmosphere remains casual but civilised.
    Upstairs is a little cramped - or I could say 'cosy' as it's not uncomfortably so but you'd struggle to fiund buggy space.
    The banquette tables downstairs would be best if you have small kids and/or a buggy, so probably best to mention when you book.
    Changing table in ground floor unisex disabled toilet. Highchairs available - those ones that hook onto the table - and they have a childrens menu. Can warm bottles on request.
    Prices are reasonable particularly given the quality of the food, although of course you can rack up the price by going for the oysters, fillet steak and top-end wine!

  • Tower of London   7 years 44 weeks ago

    Not cheap at £17 per adult, £9.50 per child or a family ticket (2 adults & 3 children) for £47. Still, interesting and well presented exhibitions including the famous Crown Jewels. This exhibiion gets really busy so not great for buggies. The rest of the facilities have obviously been considered for family groups. Kids love the stories about the Beefeaters and Ravens.

  • Prince Arthur   7 years 44 weeks ago

    Fantastic if occasionally over-fancy food. Not cheap,but great surroundings - the pub is done out like the bar of a country-house hotel. There is a 'drinkers only' area too.

  • Brookmans restaurant, bar and deli   7 years 44 weeks ago

    You can choose to eat in the restaurant or the less formal bar area. Brookmans is light and airy.
    They will heat bottles on request and there is a changing table in the unisex disabled loo.
    There is a garden out the back - great in summer. When we were there we saw a number of families with kids of all ages (including a breastfeeding baby) but the environment was still 'grown-up'.

  • Belgos Central   7 years 45 weeks ago

    I love Belgos, but that's because I love mussles & frites. And just because you have kids doesn't mean you have to miss out. Belgos is very child friendly. There's a seperate end to the restaurant where they tend to put families and those with children. There's a special kids menu, which comes with craysons and doubles as an activity sheet. Best of all, kids under 12 eat for free (usually £4.99) is adults are eating a main course which isn't on an offer (like beat the clock or the express menu). There's even a lift to take you down to the restaurant. Great 'parent friendly' place to eat nice food and drink nice Belgian beer :o)

  • Lord's Cricket Ground   7 years 45 weeks ago

    The tour is worth doing if you're a true cricket fan but it's qutie long and for anyone that isn't into their cricket it might border on the boring (but still interesting!).

  • London Zoo   7 years 45 weeks ago

    This is a great place to take kids of all ages, there's so much for them to do there and they usuall have tons of free stuff going on once you're inside. You can take a packed lunch or the restaurant has lots of kids options, they even sell baby food and last time we went they had heating facilities for bottles (don't know if it's still there though). It's a great day out and worth checking th website to see what's on for kids on the day you go. I've taken my nephews several times, when they were tiny, when they were toddlers and even now, when they're bigger and they both love it.

  • TGI Friday's   7 years 45 weeks ago

    Great place to take kids of all ages, for the older ones there's sky sports on the TV (assuming they like sports, that is!) for the younger ones there's lots to see and it's quite a fun atmosphere. The food's really nice (especially the steak!) and the staff are very attentive. It gets really busy though, so it may involve a wait for a table. Plus points are a great range of non-alcoholic cocktails, lush afters and a dedicated, seperate room to change babies in.

  • Rainforest Cafe   7 years 45 weeks ago

    This is a great place to take kids, it's a shame you have to walk through the shop to get to the cafe (sneeky!) but the cafe itself is full of animated animals and 'thunderstorms' every now and then. They have a good menu and the food's nice, but it's not cheap. Kids get an activity pack when they arrive. It's a good place to go to keep kids quiet for an hour or so while you're in town but it's generally really busy in there - so don't expect a relaxing lunch!

  • Kew Gardens London   7 years 47 weeks ago

    Plenty of space for children to run and play safely without commercial pressures to buy "things"

  • West Lodge Park - Bar and Restaurant   7 years 49 weeks ago

    West Lodge Park is a country hotel set in beautiful grounds of The Beale Arboretum, comprising 800 different species of trees from around the world. Hotel guests can visit the grounds at any time and the Arboretum is open to the public every afternoons 2 - 5 pm (admission £2.50).
    The Mary Beale restaurant (named after Britain's first professional woman painter) is light and airy with soft seating. The food in the bar ranges from sandwiches to more substantial bar meals such as sausage and mash, and there is also a full restaurant menu. They actively try and source locally - see here for more details:

    www.bealeshotels.co.uk/westlodgepark/restaurant

    There were several families with well behaved children when we were there - this is definitely not somewhere to have children running amok - and the access to the restaurant was fairly biggy friendly with only three small steps to navigate. There are changing facilities and also the toilets have lockable hooks if you want to leave your buggy or baby-bag somewhere while you eat.

    A nice place to go for a walk / allow the kids to run around and then have a civilised meal or snack afterwards.

  • Cafe Mezza   7 years 49 weeks ago

    Cafe Mezza serves a mixture of Lebanese and Italian food ( meze etc plus pizzas), a good range of soft drinks plus a basic list of alcoholic drinks. The food is all apparently great, and the preparation is all done in an open kitchen which is always a good sign.

    They have obviously tried hard with the decor to make this feel like 'a restaurant' and not just 'a kebab house', however somehow it still manages to feel like a fast-food joint. Partly this is to do with the level of cleanliness - the floors were dirty and tables left uncleared, and the toilets were a bit grubby, as if someone had wiped a mop/cloth around without actually cleaning anything. The people eating their food out of paper instead of off plates didn't exactly help to banish the 'fast food' image either!

    When we went there were several families with kids of various ages who seemed to run around happily - this is presumably great fun for the kids but probably not very safe as the staff are in and out of the kitchen area with hot food and drinks. There was space for buggies in the seating area by the window, and also presumably at the back, although you'd have to navigate the narrow seating area alongside the kitchen which could be inconvenient.
    They really let themselves down on only having baby changing in the women's toilets and also by the children's menu; with all the yummy and healthy lebanese food on the menu, and meze which are perfect for kids to pick at, the childrens menu was basically chicken nuggets and chips. Yuck.

  • Som Naturals   7 years 49 weeks ago

    Som Naturals (We are Natural) is a small-scale craft textile firm established by Jordi Cugat and Dora Garriga. Having spent much of their lives working in the field of leather goods and collectables, they decided to employ their knowledge in creating an original product line: exclusive 100% natural cotton and jute clothing for children.

    They divide their time between their workshop and their involvement at craft fairs in Catalonia and elsewhere in Spain, where they have won a number of awards thanks to the painstaking approach they take both to our stalls and to they garments.

    As well as their workshop (address above) they can be found at the Rambla de Poble Nou craft market (1st weekend of each month) and the Barcelona Port Craft Market most Saturdays and Sundays.

  • Flame Restaurant   8 years 1 day ago

    This is my local Turkish restaurant and they serve the most amazing freshly flame cooked kebabs and traditional Turkish food. It's a family affair with plenty of space for big parties at the back and great for lunches, afternoon snacks and dinners. They have high chairs and are very friendly and willing to make your visit more comfortable. If they do not appear to have the facilities you need, ask, they will be happy to do what they can. The loo's are mixed sex so may not be suitable for breastfeeding but very clean and I think there is space for changing.

  • Paul Bakery and Patisserie   8 years 2 days ago

    Paul is a relatively recent import from France that now has branches in serevral cities in Britain. The breads and cakes are fabulous.
    This branch has a tiny seating area that is often busy so can be tricky to squeeze in with a buggy, but when we were there we saw one or two - at busier times it might be necessary to fold them though.
    This is a place to stop for coffee and cake, or maybe a cup of tea and a quiche or sandwich. It's not the cheapest, but the quality is excellent. When we were there the staff were also very helpful.

    No changing facilities at this branch although there are at the following: KINGS ROAD, WIMBLEDON, HOLLAND PARK

  • Maison Blanc   8 years 3 days ago

    Couldn't help myself adding a picture to this listing.

    I second the fabulous cake! The 'Blanc' in the Maison Blanc is Raymond, of 'Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons' fame, and it shows with the attention to detail.

    They have a number of shops across the SE so we'll try to get some more listed on here.

    In the meantime check: www.maisonblanc.co.uk/cakes/stores/

  • Maison Blanc   8 years 3 days ago

    Lovely cake shop with space for buggies. Breastfeeding friendly. Fantastic cake too :)

  • Natural History Museum Tring   8 years 4 days ago

    I used to go here when I was at school in Tring, admittedly when I was 12 or so. If you have older kids going they would need to be pretty nerdy about museums as I was to enjoy it. I can imagine the little one's would appreciate it more.
