A grey & snowy Saturday morning in the middle of Winter may not seem like the best time to head up to Central London, but it was actually lovely in a very chilly sort of way. It was also the first day of half term, but I think due to the weather it was less busy than it could have been.
We were meeting up with Intrepid Bebe’s Auntie (aka by sister-Intrepid Auntie perhaps?), and heading to the Ravearoo Kids Rave at the Southbank Centre. I have already blogged about some of the great activities on at the Southbank Centre for children of all ages, from baby to teen. And many of them are free and require no booking (e.g. perfect for the unpredictable napper!).
The Southbank Centre was a great location, because there’s good facilities, plenty of space, it’s so central (easy access from Waterloo means no need for tube journeys for those traveling up from the South West). There’s also plenty of space for slumbering siblings, or the “off duty” parent to slink off and have a coffee/wine. I love how much effort some of the families had gone to with glow sticks, sequin tops and a lot of neon. We do not own enough neon i have decided.
We also stopped for lunch at Wagamamas SouthBank, who couldn’t have done more to keep Intrepid bebe happy, supplying her with crayons, a complimentary babycinno and generally being lovely.
The small one wasn’t much in the mood for raving, but with bubble guns, multicoloured confetti, inflatables, not to mention DJ Puddler. It’s a great concept, and we will definitely go again once she’s a bit older/having a better day/bloody naps when she needs it.
Undeterred by the frosty temperature, Intrepid Bebe also took her first spin on a Carousel
