    My children and my nephews spend their Sundays together. They are lead by Julian a 15 year old who meticulously plans the day and all adhere to his dictates. They seem to be enjoying themselves so I do not interfere. Sometimes I join in on their adventures. They did not seem to mind. It was later that I realized that it was because I would to take care of the expenses and would take them out to dinner to their favourite Indian Restaurant in London. They would get to save their pocket money too. I didn’t mind because I enjoyed being with them. It was most relaxing. Some of the lovely adventures Julian and the boys planned and executed are:

    Julian is a lover of sports. So one Sunday we headed for the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum. There were many interesting things for the boys there. From the origins of the game to Anna Kournikova’s dress are on display. They also got to see the world famous Centre Court at Wimbledon. This is the court which has seen a lot of history, and made and broken champions.

    One Sunday we took off to the Freighters Farm in Islington which has the largest rabbits you are ever likely to see. London’s largest farm Mudchute, on Isle of Dogs is also one of their regular haunts. Actually it is only when I went there I realized that you don’t need to head out of town for a taste of the country.
    Another place they love to visit is Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Playground at the Kensington Gardens. It even has a wooden pirate ship. Holland Park has one of the original adventure playgrounds and Battersea Park has one of the most extensive adventure playgrounds.

    Major institutions such as the National Gallery have kid’s trails so the whole family can enjoy the nation’s treasures. The Tate’s Galleries are not the sort of places that expect children to be ‘seen but not heard’ and are easy places to take the whole family to. The British Meusum is really hands on, as kids get to feel the history. Hold a Roman Centurion’s pay packet (real Roman coins) and imagine what he would have spent it on! When we went to the Meuseum of Childhood and they could not help laughing at the things we as kids and our parents with as kids!!
