Making a monster bike

Summer holidays can feel like they go on forever and, towards the end of it, the days just seem to repeat themselves. So, after being strapped in a pram for weeks, endless play dough sessions, never-ending rolling around in blankets, curtains and laundry and working nightshifts building things with bricks, my son had just had enough. Was there nothing better to do?

It’s all about boats

Love boats? The East End is rich in maritime history – and you can explore lots of it via the DLR. On our visit we started out at St Katharine Docks, not far from Tower Gateway.

It’s a little hidden gem away from the bustle around Tower Bridge and lovely to wander around. It’s the marina closest to central London and in season, has lots of boats moored which gives it a sense of the seaside in the capital. The Dickens Inn is a fabulous 18th century docks warehouse next to the marina that has been restored and you can enjoy food and drink here in the beamed restaurants.

On Saturday some of you took part in our Know London Walking challenge, navigating around London to find Legible London signs and scan as many QR codes as possible. As is to be expected in England, we had a little bit of rain, but we still had plenty of entries from a huge variety of people aged 9 to 66 – well done to everyone who took part!

Thanks to everyone who took part on Saturday – see the leaderboard below for final positions.
