We love...so many things this list will get longer and longer
Brighton pavillion - in the winter season there is now an ice rink. It's got it's own pre-school creche, pop-up rinkside restaurant and bar from Due South, past winners of the Observer Food Monthly’s Best Seaside Restaurant in Britain (delicious!), beginners' area and 'penguin' skate aids especially for children.
Castor & Pollux - Beautiful Brighton beachfront gallery and gift shop. Can fit a buggy in there for a browse on a weekday!
Boxbird Gallery - another Brighton gallery of amazing Printmakers including my favourite Graham Carter. Just about room for a buggy - very friendly.
Polka Theatre - Wimbledon. Wonderful performances for children aged 0-13. There's a cafe, dressing up area and outside playground. There are sessions of the performances aimed at older children where little brother or sister can come too. Always worth a visit and never disappoints.
Tate Modern - Bankside, London a treat for all eyes. There are children’s sessions and activities too so you can spend as much or as little or as much time as you like either walking around enjoying the space and colour or getting your children a little more involved. There is also a great games area on the website where children can re-pint masterpieces and post them on the online gallery! Simply fantastic.
Greenwich Park - A great place to fly a kite on an autumn day. With unbeatable views over London from the top of the hill. The Observatory has productions of space related performances and there's an interactive area that children will enjoy. Greenwich market is another area to while away a few hours too. Come in the snow for sledging and in the summer you can enjoy tea and scones at the Pavilion Tea House.
Sewing and craft workshops in Bath. With a cafe drop in, a kids club and they come to London for workshops too.
Baines & Fricker - A very creative duo. Prints and Furniture to make your heart sing
Chic little baby - If you've got small children and love fashion then this is a fabulous blog to follow.
Olli Ella - the most stylish nursing chairs you will ever find. Whilst we're not a big enough boutique to house these beautiful pieces I certainly give a big nod in their direction
Elinor Voytal - Statement jewellery pieces from a talented designer
Electric Gypsy - oh so lovely clothes and one off vintage designs
Winters Moon - for a delightful collection of vintage pieces, including lots for little people
Molly Meg - very desirable chairs and other things
Ammo books - it's the place to find the most exciting books, visually inspiring and printed with thoughtful words and design: art, design, illustration, photography, pop culture and the best kids books.
Anorak - with so many TV branded magazines that don't offer much space for creativity we've stumbled across these fabulous creative books. There are magazines printed quarterly and a small backlog available on their site too. You can sign up or a subscription or buy individually.
