Mommy in London

Trying to figure things out!

Sightseeing in London with a Baby – Hampton Court Palace

on September 7, 2012

Our latest sightseeing venture was to Hampton Court Palace!  It is a beautiful place to explore, the gardens are absolutely fantastic.  The palace itself has a lot of stairs, so that is important to keep in mind when going with a baby in a pram.  There are places to store buggies, but as I wanted E to sleep and hadn’t brought a baby carrier, I didn’t want to carry him around (plus he is getting heavy!)  So I spent most of the time waiting at the bottom of various sets of stairs with E (one of which is very pretty and we now have many photos of 😉

However, the grounds and the gardens make it all worthwhile, and something to consider is the gardens only ticket, which would save you a lot of money and you can still walk around the outside of the palace to take photos.  The cafe is also lovely and very baby and child friendly.   There are children’s  lunch boxes with a Very Hungry Caterpillar theme and even a little den with children’s sized tables and chairs.   Of course food can also be taken out into the grounds for a picnic.

Definitely a great destination for a family day out in London 🙂
