A London family bucket list

Earlier this year we booked our first family holiday as a 3 and it’s now given me the itch to book another family break. I’ve been looking at places to visit and would absolutely love to go back to London now we are 3 and take Freya to some of the sites. (Yes I’m aware she won’t remember much at this age but that’s not the point). So it got me thinking and I wanted to put together a little bucket list of top attractions to visit in London that are perfect for the family.

Since then I’ve tried numerous lotions and potions to try to help me sleep sounder and make sure I get a better night’s rest to tackle the day ahead with a baby. For the last few weeks I’ve been testing out Feather & Down luxury Pillow Spray and seeing if it really does help you sleep better.
