An afternoon on the South Bank

We spent the afternoon at the South Bank. It’s one of our favourite places in London and for the first time we let the children take their scooters!


They were very happy scooting along, especially when they found some large puddles to zoom through.


We wanted to go and see HMS President, currently known as the Dazzle ship, moored at Victoria Embankment. The dazzle camouflage was designed to confuse enemy U-boat captains during the First World War. It looked amazing!


I don’t think the children appreciated the views we had over London but us adults did. We headed back along the South Bank, past the Southbank Centre which was hosting the Festival of Love. There was so much going on but we were all hungry so headed to Wagamama for lunch.


We were able to sit outside and people watch. Little Sis was hungry but she eventually cheered up when her food came.

To the end of the line

Today was another trip on the tube to visit the Polka Theatre in Wimbledon. We had been invited to see a performance of the amazing puppet operafor children Skitterbang Island.

It involved a bit of a journey via Earl’s Court and Wimbledon – both were worthy of a photograph.


The performance was amazing and the venue was very intimate which made the experience more fun. After it had finished we stopped for lunch at the cafe.


We had a lovely walk back through Wimbledon to the station (which we have now crossed off our list) and home.
