If you are looking for something new and fun to do with your kids, then have you considered exploring Greenwich in South East London?
You may have been to Greenwich before with your partner or your friends to visit the famous market, which sells everything from stylish clothes and traditional international cuisine, to beautiful accessories as well as stunning paintings by local artists. But what does Greenwich have to offer for families?
The Biscuit Café
If you and your kids love arts and crafts, then you are sure to like The Biscuit Café. Situated just opposite the University of Greenwich, this modern art café allows you to design and paint your very own piece of crockery, while enjoying a cup of tea and a home made cake or the speciality ice cream. Mugs, bowls, plates and vases are just a few of the items you can choose from. Then you simply sit down, help yourself to coloured paints and brushes and get creative!
On a beautiful summer’s afternoon, why not take your children to see the roaming deer in Greenwich Park? The park is also home to dozens of birds who are normally found splashing around in the small boating lake. Alternatively, if you are feeling adventurous, you could hire a small pedalo and take your children for a little boat ride.
We all know how much kids love sweets, so why not take them to Mr Simms Olde Sweet shop, situated on Church Street? The vintage styled sweet shop sells a mixture of modern and old fashioned treats, from Rhubarb and Custards to Jazzies and White Mice. In addition, music from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is normally playing which adds a wonderfully magical atmosphere to the shop.
