So, you live in London and have just had a baby? Or planning a trip to the city with your child?
Are you looking for the best things to do with babies in London?
I first moved to London was I 23, which is nearly a decade before I had a baby. The London to me of those early 20s years was all pubs, bars, clubs, shops, work, restaurants and night buses.
Nearly ten years on, the city as I knew it became a baby bubble of parks, coffee shops, friends houses and playgroups in our south-of-the-river enclave. It was a steep learning curve though, when I first had children I didn’t even know the Tate Modern had a children’s area.
