London is a city I visit often, but I’ve always ventured there alone without my family in tow. Although I’d always been tempted to bring them along, I was worried about how we’d all manage. They only have small legs – how would they manage to walk big distances between the tube and hotel? Would they cope with being cooped up in a small hotel room for three nights? Would they actually eat anything if I took them out for dinner? My list of worries was long.
When we finally decided to book a trip to London in Spring, I was convinced that our visit was going to be a washout – for me at least. But then during an online search for hotels, I discovered The Athenaeum in Mayfair which promised to provide a family friendly experience for its guests. I booked it and hoped for the best.
