Though it’s great to travel abroad, some of my fondest travel experiences have been in good old England.

I love travelling to London with family or friends, hunting for bargains in Camden Market or taking in a show—The Lion King and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory are magical with children … or without!

While it’s great to sample a tasty delicacy from the eclectic range of street stalls or discover a hidden little restaurant or pub down one of London’s maze of back streets, my family’s most favourite eating place is in Covent Garden in London: a restaurant called Wild Wood directly opposite the doors of the Royal Opera House. Not only are they very welcoming to children, the atmosphere friendly and the food great (especially the berry-topped Belgian waffles with ice cream that come out in their own little frying pan), but on a warm evening they open up the full-size windows at of the front of the restaurant and you can take in London’s busy night life. When there is a major event at the Royal Opera House you have a bird’s eye view from your table of the stars arriving in their limousines!
