Local family finds... in South West London


Local family finds... in South West London

South West London resident Rachael Speirs and her family give us the lowdown on where they spend their time locally

Local family finds


We like Strada for meals out because the staff are great with kids (www.strada.co.uk). Giraffe was a favourite too but the local one’s just closed down. Crumpet in Northcote Road is great because there’s a play area (www.crumpet.biz).




We often go to the One O Clock Club on Wandsworth Common (020 7228 6674). It’s nicer than Clapham because it’s in a lovely setting and the outside space has more toys and trees. Music group Tin Pan Annie is fun (www.tinpanannie.co.uk). It’s just a guy with a guitar but we all sing along and the kids get to play instruments. Playball is great too, it’s a balls skills class that moves outside in the summer (gavin.ukplayball.com). We go down to the Tooting Leisure Centre when it’s raining for their soft play area (www.dcleisurecentres.co.uk).



For clothes we shop at JoJo Maman Bébé (www.jojomamanbebe.co.uk) and Petit Bateau (www.petit-bateau.co.uk) during the sales. Quackers (020 7978 4235), the independent clothes shop, has lovely clothes and Fara Kids (www.faracharityshops.org) has really great second hand stuff. For toys, there’s Letterbox (www.letterbox.co.uk) on Northcote Road and the large WH Smiths in Morden (www.whsmith.co.uk).
