Stuck for places to go with kids in the City? We stumbled upon Spa Fields in Clerkenwell, a great green spot in the middle of London's hustle and bustle.
We love it because... You'd never expect much green space around here, let alone this quirky Teletubby-inspired playground! It's VERY adventurous, with lots of high climbing activities and water, so it's better for older children who are used to exploring. It's only a small playground, but much more than you'd usually get in this area. There's also a water pipe for paddling, although this did look a little on the green side when we were there...
When to go... We went in the summer holidays and it was quiet. I doubt this is ever that busy, bearing in mind the amount of offices that surround it. But if you're meeting someone in town for lunch and need a space to let the kids breathe, this is perfect.
Top tip... If you fancy a treat for lunch or drinks, or the weekend Brunch with a huge waiting list, try the lovely Bourne & Hollingsworth next door to the park - read our review here.
