Back To The Future Musical!

Back To The Future Musical! Oh my goodness, oh my goodness, it had been WAY too long since we’d been to see a London show, and this weekend we were reminded just how amazing, wonderful and fabulous that experience is with, it has to be said, one of the greatest shows I’ve ever seen! Back To The Future Musical isn’t brand new, it’s been a firecracker hit on the London West End scene for a while now, but it’s brand […]

Colonel Saab, London!

Colonel Saab, London! he Family history of the Colonel Saab restaurant, sat on High Holborn, just a short walk from the tube, is so colourfully interesting to read inside the menu, the story playing out in a read it and see it moment as you devour the information about the decor, art work collected over decades from travels through India and portrait details on the wall. As Roop, the owner’s parents, were stationed at different army postings they collected art, recipes and […]

Why Visit The Science Museum, London?

Why Visit The Science Museum, London? There are tons of reasons why you should visit The Science Museum in London, more so than perhaps the Natural History, which is just next door and yet seems to be the museum my out of town friends immediately think of. When I tell them to go next door instead, and the reasons why, they are never disappointed. First of all the museum is free to get into with a wealth of resources at […]

Brew//LDN!

Brew//LDN! Just as we approach Mother’s Day weekend and Dads everywhere are running, late to the party, to panic buy gifts for us the Mums are already turning their attentions to Father’s Day because we are thoughtful like that. We put lots of time and effort into the planning of gifts, so much so that we plan in advance. And so how about a bit of an early one this year, seeing as we’ve missed so much the past two […]

Operation Ouch Live At The Lyric!

Operation Ouch Live At The Lyric! We were in London yesterday for some festive fun and were very kindly invited to see the new Operation Ouch Live show on at the Lyric near Covent Garden. This is a show the big kids devour on TV, especially Jimmy! It’s filled to the brim with biology, experiments and facts about the incredible things our body can do so it’s no wonder – I have a friend who tells him gory stories of […]

The London Transport Museum Christmas 2021!

The London Transport Museum Christmas 2021! It’s been a good while since we visited the London Transport Museum what with lockdown but we are so glad we made the trip this Christmas season to see all they have on offer for Christmas 2021. As always the ticket price is FREE for children and just £18.50 for adults but this is an annual ticket which means you can go as many times as you like in 12 months and despite there […]

Sadlers Wells The Snowman At The Peacock Theatre, London!

Sadlers Wells The Snowman At The Peacock Theatre, London! A regular fixture on our calendar has been to see Sadlers Wells The Snowman by the Birmingham Repertory Theatre at the Peacock Theatre in London – we missed last year in the 2020 hiatus and though a slower pace of life and festive build up was actually quite worthwhile I found, there were certain things that we really did feel wistful about – Raymond Briggs’ story of The Snowman in ballet […]

Stick Man Live 2021!

Stick Man Live 2021! For years and years, ever since the big kids were tiny, we have enjoyed seeing Stick Man Live at the theatre in London. We missed last year of course, like lots of things, and it was this missing from our calendar that the kids really noticed. It sort of signals the start of the Christmas build up for us, a bit early I know but it’s so super festive that we can’t help but get into […]

Tower Bridge Experience London!

Tower Bridge Experience London! Tower Bridge is the most beautiful of all the bridges in London and famously wasn’t bought by American Robert P. McCulloch! McCulloch thought he was investing in the blue beauty when in fact he’d actually purchased the far uglier duckling of London Bridge – well, at least he got the song! And London Bridge may have a children’s ditty but Tower has the aesthetics and is features in so many films there’s too many to mention […]

Hard Rock Cafe London!

Hard Rock Cafe London! We just got back from a sight seeing weekend in London where we made like tourists and saw a bit of the capital through eyes that acted as if they’d never lived there. Of course when you do live somewhere you never really see it, not like you do as a visitor and we really opened those peepers with the children like we never had before. Since moving away we had been back almost weekly until […]
