Carters Steam Fair in Clissold Park

This is the swoon-worthy nostalgic fair; the cute one you feel good about taking your family to (as opposed to the one with busty ladies spray-painted on the dodgems). Carters Steam Fair has rides dating from the 1890s to the 1960s that are powered by steam, by electric and even by hand. This weekend it can be found in Stoke Newington but check their website for a full schedule of upcoming locations.

Where: Clissold Park, Green Lanes, Stoke Newington, N16 9JH

Children’s Garden at Kew Gardens

Run, don’t walk (seriously, we hear it’s very popular) to this amazing new play space for kids at Kew. We went and we loved it – check out our review of the Children’s Garden at Kew.
