Central London / step-
Capital tots thoughts:
This is one for slightly older children. I took MLA to see the Leonardo exhibition
in November when he was 5 months old, or more accurately I wanted to see it, so I
took him along…wow, what a day -
You might not enjoy this with super energetic noisy toddlers, but if you do go a
good tip is to play “hunt the painting” -
They do put on activities for toddlers and children including their magic carpet storytelling sessions every Sunday.
The National Gallery has a big and busy café which is reasonably child friendly -
Make a day of it by:
Chasing the pigeons in Trafalgar Square where the National Gallery is located and then walk across Hungerford Bridge to the London Eye. Or if a park is more the order of the day walk across Trafalgar Square to St. James’ Park (10 mins) and feed the ducks and run around on the grass.
What did you think?
