The INSIDER Summary:



Traveling with a baby can be difficult, but there are some things you can do to make it easier.


Book a hotel that's in the city's center so you're never too far from your room.


Plan out transportation. Underground transportation isn't the easiest with a stroller so familiarize with bus routes instead.


London, was our choice for the first family getaway. It was an amazing travel experience out of Spain, without grandparents or relatives who could help us. Damian was only 5 months, and we were hungry to travel and pass this feeling to our little one.

Flight
Prepare well for the flight. Apart from the documents,money, check-in ticket try to have all the main baby related things(diapers, bottle, formula, etc) in a very accessible place.

Transport
Use public transport, only if you are sure, you know clearly how to get where you need. Just because London is a metropolis and has good public transport connections, does not sadly mean that you can roam easy on public transport with a stroller. We had a clear vision that
tube


we wont use, only if we will have to.
Bus


is much easier and more flexible than using the tube and you can be dropped closer to your final destination.
Taxi


is the best option while traveling in 2+, more expensive, but comfort has its price. We recommend to use
Hailo

which is an amazing app to pick a taxi.

Hotel
Choose a centrist hotel
or a hotel with a good connection to the city center. It is much easier to have a pleasant journey with your baby while staying closer to the city-center.
Danubius Hotel Regents Park

was our option as it is situate in the heart of London, close to Regents park and 2 minutes walking from the closest bus stop
Park Road Lords Cricket Ground
(13, 82, 113, 274, N13, N113

)
. By the way, the hotel weve got was a Top Secret

offer on

2 days guided tour.
We enjoyed the wonderful sights of London with guided translations by
The Original London Sightseeing Tour
buses.
We were looking in internet for the best option and stopped on the page website
. There were
a winter offer for

52 for 2 adults + 1 infant/ 48 hours.
The prettiest part of this kind of travelling is the ease to be dropped to the main sightseeing and then calmly take your time in the best places of the city.

Boat-spotting with baby on the river Thames
We have taken a journey along the Thames to see London Bridge and get to Greenwich. We had spent a relaxing time on the boat, and there were a lot of space to use our pushchair. Taking the boat apart is more expensive, but we got the ticket with our Sightseeing Bus. Additionally, the boat is the fastest way to get alongside the river, wherever you need.

Parks of London
London is a lovely family-friendly city with great amount of wonderful parks and open spaces that will appeal to babies. Unfortunately, we havent enjoyed these too much due to limited time we had.

Walking
Apart of beautiful parks, the central London can be a pleasant experience to discover while walking. Sometimes you get faster while walking rather than using public transport, even travelling with a pushchair.

Baby-Friendly places to eat
Most London restaurants and pubs are tolerant of parents bringing their children. There were not a big deal to find a good place to eat with our baby.

Breastfeeding/Bottle feeding in London
It is widely accepted to breastfeed in public almost everywhere in London, I used to breastfeed few times only, as we have made use of the bottle during the day.
If you need water for your babys formula, you can go in whatever cafe and they are pretty friendly to give it to you. Most of the times for no costs.
