After a long week of doing life, I sometimes sit there & think..


“Yikes! what’s on at the weekend”


Do you know that feeling? (Sigh)


Here's a list of what’s on things to do in London with kids this week / weekend.


This list is super versatile, however make sure you check / book online first to ascertain the latest updates or you could be left slightly disappointed.
