5 Baby-friendly Activities in London that Mums Will Enjoy

BYOB

Mum and Baby Activities in London

Life doesn’t have to become a maddening cycle of home, nursery rhyme time, and soft play just because you have a baby. If you fancy some grey matter stimulation, some guttural laughs (you’ll need to laugh being a parent) or having a social meal out, then read on. Here are some top picks for things to do with baby in tow that mums will actually enjoy themselves…

HAVE A LAUGH

Sometimes you just need to laugh the hard, tired, poo-splattered times away. Luckily for you BYOB Comedy and Screaming With Laughter offer stellar line-ups with comedians, catering to parents in the audience. Bring your baby, have a laugh, feel renewed.

GO TO A MUSIC GIG

When was the last time you saw live music? No, not your kid pushing the same button on their toy electric guitar over and over again for 20 minutes. We’re talking a proper gig, mama. Miss those? So did some other parents, who started the genius series Wake Up Gigs. Proper gigs you can take your babies along too and everyone can be as noisy as they wanna be while the beat goes on.

WATCH A NEW FILM IN THE CINEMA

Enjoy a newly released ‘grown up’ film in an actual cinema. Many London cinemas have baby-friendly screenings (Picturehouse cinemas, Everyman cinemas, Rio cinema, and others) during which they usually have films play at slightly lower volume, the lights aren’t completely off, and fellow viewers won’t mind the soft gurgle of tiny cinephiles. You’ll feel refreshingly in the loop talking about something current you’ve seen!

EAT AND BE MERRY

Tired of eating a crust of bread with one hand on your own (apart from the gorgeous baba of course) for lunch? Tiny Table, a guide dedicated to family-friendly dining in London and across the UK, runs amazing events called The Together Table. These gatherings, held at various cafes, help mums get out of the house, meet other mums and have a proper bite to eat.

If it’s a lovely pub lunch you crave, every Thursday The Duke of Richmond runs the brilliantly conceived ‘Mum and Dad Lunch Club’. Bring your babies, put them down on the soft play mats and enjoy a two-course lunch including a glass of wine or beer for £15. You can even book ahead and relax knowing you’ll have a table waiting for you. Love that.

BYE BYE BABY BRAIN

Tired of talking about nappies and nipple cream? Enjoy a TED style talk with baby in tow at Babble Talks in Balham, Crouch End and East Dulwich. These are guaranteed to not be about parenting. Talk topics range from climate change, to female writers, to astronomy.
