#CulturedKids 59 – London September 2020
Welcome to September edition of Cultured Kids, some unique times, challenges and opportunities, now with the summer officially gone, time to get cultured again! We’re delighted to announce that lovely Vyki Museum Mum will join our #CulturedKids troupes as a co-host, along fab veteran Megan at Truly Madly Kids!
What have we been up to in the last couple of months? We have been blessed with a much needed break in Santorini and thereafter island hopped to Crete at the Domes of Elounda and incredible Elounda Beach. We were also super quick to grab the opportunity window of the travel corridor with Portugal and went back to fabulous Martinhal, this time in stunning and unspoilt Sagres.
The corridors and guidance are ever evolving but what’s sure is that travelling abroad in 2020 is not for the faint hearted or those craving certainty!
September has been incredibly packed so far: 2 kids back 2 new schools, long hectic days in my ‘home-office’ and some great outings with friends plus culture in person, hurray ! Open House week-end has been once again our favourite, reduced version compared to last years, but socially distant, safe and responsible. This year we made it to Honeywood Museum by picturesque Carshalton Ponds in the heart of Carshalton’s historic Conservation Area as well as UK Supreme Court for some fabulous stories, courtrooms and library. The kids loved the balloons and children activities packs, we adored the blue skies and balmy temperatures of the Indian summer. Both Honeywood Museum and UK Supreme Court are open now to public also outside London Open House week-end, one can easily plan their visits in here.

What else do we recommend in the strange new world of the pandemic ? Go Boat London is a fantastic option for picnics, bubbles and cultural outings at leisure boating by Little Venice canals or Kingston waterways. For something more physical and back to nature, GoApe is another favourite – we had an adrenalin blast at Black Park with TreeTop Adventure+ between high wobbly bridges, fisherman traps and 80m zipline. For the best spread art outdoors, check Carol Peace beautiful sculptures spread around Coworth Park beautiful grounds – makes also a perfect stop for classy afternoon tea and a treat Sunday lunch.
We loved reading all the link ups from last linkie and our favourites have been Grand Adventures National Trust Days out and Swimming with sharks and playing with rays. Congrats!
