Where is your favourite place to eat with your family?

My daughter and I really like mum-and-daughter dates for special occasions at the Brasserie of Light in Selfridges. They have this apple tart dessert that I just can’t get enough of. If we aren’t there, you will find us at YoSushi or Sweet Thursday, this amazing neighbourhood pizza place on Southgate Road in De Beauvoir, Hackney. Love love love it!

What’s your favourite place to visit in the UK?









I would thoroughly recommend Glasgow to anyone for a Best Day Out. The city is so vibrant and has something for everyone. I love the Rum Shack on Polloskhaws Road for food, Barshaw Park for swings and greenery (although that is technically in Paisley), Glasgow Green is also lovely. The west end is just beautiful too, for lusting after the gorgeous houses and architecture. I grew up there but I don’t get back there enough!





What would be your perfect family day out?

London Fields




A perfect day out with my family is a really simple one to be honest – London Fields, bikes, a picnic and all day long sunshine. I love being outside and just soaking up the sun while the kids play with their cousins. As long as there’s a loo nearby though! I am one of these people that has to know where all the loos are… Why not read our guide to London’s department store loos?







We really love going to the Southbank to walk along the river – they also have an Africa Utopia festival there during the summer and we really love that. We also enjoy going to the Olympic Park – especially when they have that urban beach there – that really makes a Best Day Out.

London’s famous black cab





Last Christmas, we hired a black cab with an fabulous driver and he took us on a tour of all the Christmas lights around town. It was amazing and the best way to see all the lights without being freezing. We will definitely be making that a regular thing. We also wandered around Canary Wharf to look at the festival of lights they have there over the festive season. It was so pretty.
