Local family finds... in Central London


Local family finds... in Central London

Central London resident Liz Barber and her family give us the lowdown on where they spend their time locally

Local family finds


For meals out we like to go to Giraffe on Chiswick High Street (www.giraffe.net). It’s very family-friendly. We wouldn’t usually eat in a shopping centre, but the children are mad about Jamie’s Italian in Westfield (www.jamieoliver.com).




For activities, we spend a lot of the time at The Park Club on East Acton Lane, where we are members (www.theparkclub.co.uk). Ravenscourt Park is popular because it has every sort of playground you can imagine (www.lbhf.gov.uk). Kite Studios (www.kitestudios.org) do great art classes and it’s a brilliant venue for
parties, and we like the soft play area at Syon House (www.syonpark.co.uk), where there’s also a small reptile zoo.

For a cheap day out, we go along the river to Duke’s Meadow where there’s a massive playground and a new water play area (www.dukesmeadowstrust.org).



For children’s clothes and presents we’ll either go to Westfield (uk.westfield.com) for the chains or Chiswick for the independent shops. Trotters (www.trotters.co.uk) do lovely clothes and Snap Dragon is brilliant for toys. The woman who runs it really knows her stuff (020 8995 6618).
