Looking for fun things to do with kids in London and beyond?
Welcome to Babes About Town, a multiple award-nominated family lifestyle and travel blog. Babes about Town is a guide for fun-loving families raising cool, kind and curious kids in London and beyond.
I’m Uju, founder and Babe-in-chief. You might know me as the author of Bringing Up Race: How to Raise a Kind Child in a Prejudiced World.
This blog is mostly about London life with kids. But the goal is to inspire parents, wherever you are in the world, to make the most of these intense but rather brief years we have with young children.
If you want to learn a little more about how the blog got started, jump straight to Our Story. Curious about the person writing all this? Come over and Meet Uju. Want to work with me? Check out my Press & Media page.
Otherwise, stick around and I’ll take you on a quick tour.
