London with a toddler!

A couple of my very close friends decided to uproot from our small world in the north and brave life down in the big smoke a few years ago, since then I make regular visits and try to take Freddie with me whenever plans permit!

Fortunately it only takes a mere two and a teeny bit hours to get to London on the train from my nearest stop which is brilliant when travelling with kids and since the nice guys at Virgin let under 5's travel free it's brilliant for the purse too!

Whilst the weather was rather cold on our last visit, we still managed to fill our visit with lots of fun! It was lovely to catch up with our friends and them to spend time with Freddie!

We met with friends at The Rainforest Cafe which was amazing, it was my first visit and whilst the food wasn't anything to rave about, the surrounds defiantly made up for it. I'd recommend it if you've got young children but be warned it's not the cheapest place to eat and the food isn't anything extraordinary unlike the experience!

The following day we made our way over to Greenwich and took a return Emirates line trip over the Thames, since it was midweek it was rather quiet and we didn't need to queue also we got our own pod between four of us! 

I would recommend this to anyone it was a great and different way to see the sights and skyline of the city! We then wandered down to the riverside, under the brightly lit walkway and hopped on a boat back to central London, which again was a great way to see the sights!

On our final morning before we headed home we decided to go for a short walk to the park and get a Wagamamas for lunch in order for Freddie to burn off some energy before our train journey home! 

Such a lovely couple of chilled, yet fun filled days in London! We've booked to go back in late spring and we already can't wait!

What are your favourite things to do in London?
