This time to South Kensington, home of London’s biggest and most popular museums (the Victoria & Albert, Natural History, and Science museums) and thus in peak holiday time, a very busy place.

Where to Eat with Kids: Masaniello, Twickenham

It was a very spontaneous thing. I was at my son’s, playing with 3-year-old Freddie in the garden, and just before midday Jonathan said, Let’s go to Masaniello for lunch. Thus we gathered bits together for a 3-year-old and 9-month-old and bundled everything and everyone into the car and headed into central Twickenham. Masaniello is […]

Where to Eat with Kids: Franco Manca, Richmond

Over the last three years I’ve discovered some great places to eat with my 3-year-old grandson Freddie. Following family tradition, he’s turning into a great gourmet and even likes to help with the cooking. He loves Italian food and has an addiction to olives!
