Beautiful London. Kensington Mums, Dads and their little ones went around London by boat visiting Big Ben, London Eye, Greenwich and Canary Wharf. It was a great day and we got to appreciate the beautiful city we live in. We highly recommend this to do on a sunny day!


If you follow us on Instagram, you would have seen this picture we posted.  Kensington Mums bumped into this student who is making use of outdoor space with wifi on high street Kensington. What a creative idea. We loved it.
