I love living in South London and as we ponder on where life will be taking us next, I thought it was high time I listed my praise for South London and all the fabulously free things there are to do here! So I’ve compiled my top 10 list of the best places to rock on over to this this time of year. If you live nearby and do end up visiting (or if, like us, these are your regular haunts too) do let me know what you think? Have I missed somewhere out? What would you include?
What’s not to love about Greenwich? It has everything you could wish for in a family day out. A great market (Weds and Fri-Sun) with some fab gifts and yummy food from pretty much every country you can think of. I love wandering around and enjoying the colourful food on offer at every corner.
We always make it an essential to try and encourage the kids to munch on something a little different and try something new. Sometimes this idea flops (like trying the Portugese Paella, which incidentally was delicious, my children are just boring.) But Brazillian Chirros are always a hit obviously!
Once you’ve feasted your eyes on all that the market has to offer, there are some lovely gift shops or you can marvel at the Cutty Sark. There’s the park which I love because it has so much space, there’s always room for a picnic or a kick about and the play park has had an upgrade so it’s definitely worth a visit. Climbing to the top is an essential for the view and to cool down after the climb, Greenwich has the best choice in pubs around for a beverage or to listen to a local band or two. Most are family friendly with gardens. Our favourites include the Union (try the Raspberry Beer) or The Mitre for yummy roasts and somewhere a little more quiet.
