On Sunday we had a real treat, as we were invited to have ‘Breakfast with the Bunny’ at Hard Rock Cafe London, the original Hard Rock Cafe, that opened in 1971! The kids were incredibly excited to meet the Easter Bunny, and Sam and I were excited for the legendary food and famous rock relics on the walls! Breakfast with…

Days Out: Go Boat London

London is a city that I think you can never tire of, there is always so much to see and do and it is ever changing – though thankfully there is still a lot of history to explore and learn about. Obviously the Thames is London’s most famous waterway, and I’ve done trips along there before but last weekend we…

Exploring Literary London with Kids

I adore London, always have and probably always will do and have written a few posts about visiting London in the past (here on the London Eye, and here on a river cruise most recently) though I don’t think I’d ever want to live there if I’m honest!

The hustle and bustle is great for a few days but then I get long to be back bedside the seaside at home!
