Local family finds... in North West London


Local family finds... in North West London

North London resident Rebecca Tayor and her family give us the lowdown on where they spend their time locally

Local family finds


For eats we go to Parliament Hill Café (www.cityoflondon.co.uk), the gnocchi is fantastic and it’s right on the Heath. We also like Trojka in Primrose Hill (www.trojka.co.uk) for the pancakes and because there’s lots of space. For baked potatoes, Sub Café on Queen’s Crescent (NW5, no number) is great. It’s basic and cheap and the staff are lovely.




Our favourite activities include Green Means Go, a fantastic music and singing class that happens in several venues around the area (www.greenmeansgo.co.uk). We also go to Kentish Town City Farm (www.ktcityfarm.org.uk) all the time. They run really brilliant drop-in pottery sessions on Thursdays and messy play mornings on Fridays.

In the summer we’re at the One O’Clock club on Hampstead Heath (www.hampsteadheath.net) and we also love Treetops, the soft play area inside Talacre sports centre, which also runs really great gymnastics classes for older children (www.camden.gov.uk/talacre).



For shopping, I go to Happy Returns on Rosslyn Hill (020 7435 2431) for presents, Cubs (020 7431 0018) for shoes and Blue Daisy (www.bluedaisy.com) for equipment. The Owl Bookshop in Kentish Town (020 7485 7793) has a great selection of children’s books and they give out stickers, which our daughter loves.
