The Step Outside Blog

As anyone who looks at our books will be aware, we love London and are passionate about helping other people to enjoy our city, through cost-free family days out.

 

A good few people have suggested that we write a blog about London things that have caught our attention, captured our hearts or made us think - or all of the above - so here it is.

We hope you enjoy it!

In my recent blog for mykidsy.com I mentioned that my love of London was probably engendered by our day trips there in the school holidays. This has set me a-thinking about those days out, and the special and particular memories that I have of them. Some things are just the same as they were then, and some are very different. Over our next blogs, I’m going to share some of those memories with you!


When I was in infant and junior school, at some point every school holiday my mum would pack up a picnic (all tupperward and plastic bags, the dreaded wet flannel in another plastic bag) and with her four children would set off for the station. Tickets from Seven Kings to South Kensington were 5/- (25p) for adults and 2/6d (12 1/2p) for children between 3 and 14 years. We had to buy tickets to a particular station – there were no travel zones or travel cards – and as you can see, children were charged half fare. Still, a day out for 12/6d was not bad value!


At South Kensington Station, the first delight was The Tunnel, complete with echoes, posters and buskers. The Tunnel is a Victorian subway which connects the station directly to the museums, with exits at various stages along it, depending which museum you are visiting. These days I much prefer walking above ground, but then we wouldn’t hear of it!


There are three main museums at South Kensington, the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum and the Victoria and Albert museum (the V&A), all glorious Victorian buildings. Today they are shown at their very best, but in my childhood they were black and grimy – I had no idea that the Natural History Museum is such a beautiful building! But back to my memories. There were always vans parked at the entrances to the museums, selling both icecreams and hotdogs at outrageous prices – we were never allowed anything from them, despite our pleading and nagging.


My parents always encouraged research and learning, and occasionally we would take objects or curiosities to the museums with us, and go to the information desk. We’d be seen by an expert in the relevant field and we were unfailingly given polite and patient explanations from curators, researchers or whoever was on hand.


When we got to a certain age – I think about nine – we were allowed to go off on our own, or with a sibling, within the museum, meeting up at a set place and time. I can’t imagine many parents would be comfortable doing that now, but we loved it.


I’ll be musing on what we saw, did and enjoyed in each museum in another blog, but lunch was always the same. In fine weather our picnic was eaten either in the grounds of the Natural History Museum, or in the quadrangle of the Victoria and Albert Museum (the V&A) across the road. This featured a huge Buddah, now removed, where, fascinatingly for us, Buddhists would occasionally come to meditate while we chomped on our sandwiches. I don’t remember much about the V&A, other than the quadrangle. (This is rather odd, as today I think this is my favourite museum!) I seem to remember the museums had ‘school rooms’ where we could eat our sandwiches in winter – they were underground, windowless and smelled of old packed lunches and I didn’t like them at all!


The great museums of London were, and still are, are a rich resource and a wonderful asset. I think we are so privileged to have such ready access to these world-class institutions.. We don’t take our Step Outside Guides into the South Kensington museums for two reasons. First, the museums are each a day out in themselves, and second, they all have excellent family information, guides and activities. Perhaps one day we’ll write a Step Inside guide for each of them! In the meantime, whether you are stepping outside with one of our guides, or stepping inside a museum or gallery, make sure you enjoy London and all the amazing things it has to offer!

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to write a blog about visiting London for an excellent website, mykidsy.com, which has loads of information on kids activities and on family issues. I gave a bit of background about why I love London, and worked out some top tips for successful days out in the capital with kids. You can read the whole article on MyKidsy's website but for just the tips, read on.


Here are our top tips for exploring London with your family without breaking the bank:


• If possible,travel in the cheap day return slot on public transport. If you are outside Zone Six, include a one day Travelcard on your ticket - this will pay off if you want to travel around within London. Children aged 11 and under travel free on TfL services.

• This seems obvious, but do check opening days, times and other details before you go to a particular venue. A disappointed tribe on your hands will not enhance the day. Extra tip: smaller museums and galleries are often closed on a Monday.

• If you aren’t familiar with the environment, plan your route in advance! London is big and busy and can be intimidating. Retracing steps because of wrong turnings, or going off in the wrong direction, is surprisingly tiring.

• Keep looking up – and down- as well as around you. It’s amazing how many interesting details you’ll spot, and can be a great focus for using cameras.

• It’s fun for everyone if you engage the kids as much as possible. Let them consult maps and lead, or encourage them to work out which bus numbers you need from the information at the bus stop.

• If you’re in a picture gallery or museum, hang back a bit. Let the kids go ahead and look at whatever interests them. I remember the day we took our children to the Tate for the first time. Our daughter was a room ahead of us and came back squeaking with laughter because there was a picture of bird poo in the next room. It was a work by Jackson Pollock - Summertime Number 9A 1948 to be precise.

• Take regular rest-and-refresh breaks. They needn’t be long, but blood sugars are your ally in keeping the kids sweet – literally!

• Unless it’s a special occasion, I always opt for a picnic over a meal out. It can take a lot of time, money and frayed tempers to find somewhere to eat, choose your food and wait for it to be cooked and served. You can eat a picnic when and where you like, you know everyone will like the food, and it’s cheap! The kids could each carry their own lunch in a backpack (though it may be gone by lunchtime…).

• When you’re travelling within the centre of London, buses are much easier, and more interesting than the Tube. You are sure to pass some major ‘sights’, and sitting gazing out from the top of a double decker is a great way to take a break.

• If you find a whole day’s exploring a bit too much, retire to one of the magnificent Royal Parks for a couple of hours. They are great places to watch the world go by, and the kids can make as much noise as they want.



For days out that are a real day off, then Step Outside Guides are, of course, the books for you. But you know that!

We hope you enjoy your summer days out!

Last Wednesday I went with my daughter to see Peter Pan at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre. I hadn’t been to this theatre for years and it was nice to be back in such a magical place, to see a magical play!


Although the day had been chilly a cheerful evening sun tickled us with warmth as we left Baker street tube and walked past (in my opinion) a rather tacky looking Madame Tussauds towards Regent’s Park. It really was a beautiful evening as we entered the park’s Inner circle and we strolled companionably, marvelling at how London can change from chaotic to peaceful in just a 5 minute walk.


On arrival at the theatre we partook of a delicious Regents park burger meal and I had my first Pimms of the summer, whilst sitting in the sun people-watching, and anticipating the evening ahead.


This theatre was founded in 1932, by Sydney Carroll and Robert Atkins, initially as a temporary structure for the showing of a production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. It was such a success that the following year a full season of theatre was launched, and the life of Britain’s oldest professional permanent outdoor theatre had begun. Now a registered charity, the theatre attracts over 140,000 people for each year’s 16 week season. There is just something enchanting about being around a stage in the middle of the park, completely uncovered (save for the tiered auditorium with its very long theatre bar).


This production sets the story in a WWI Field hospital, which cleverly morphs into the Darling’s nursery as the military nurse becomes Wendy. As Neverland transforms into no man’s land there are clever parallels between Peter Pan and The Lost Boys, and those men, and many boys who were lost in the Great War.


Peter Pan, and indeed his creator J M Barrie are fascinating characters. In our book 'STEP OUTSIDE Kensington Gardens and Beyond' we visit Peter's statue in another of London’s wonderful green spaces. So if you are thinking of visiting open air theatre in London this year then I would recommend this production, and if you precede it with a visit to Kensington with our book, then you could have an absolutely Peter Pan-tastic day!!

Last Thursday I had the pleasure of doing an Urban Curiosity Walkshop with Clare Barry


We met at London Bridge station in appallingly British weather; rain, cold, more rain, more cold, and so on. That didn’t dampen our spirits as our small group marched defiantly around, with plenty of stops to focus and observe, stretch our imaginations a little and look for the extraordinary, tucked in amongst the ordinary. With little pointers and encouragements the treats of the area unfolded before our eyes (and minds).


We saw the lovely Pocket Park at Greenwood Theatre, and the funky colouring of the Bermondsey Fashion and Textile Museum . I really liked the elegant grandeur of the Guinness Trust Building in Snowsfield and Arthur’s Mission, funded by The Ragged School, which still stands opposite. These, I discovered, date from 1897 and the former is amongst other Trust built tenement blocks erected as part of the Victorian philanthropist effort to provide housing for those with meagre means, who had moved into the area.

The area is rich with history; we went to the site of the old leather market and wool exchange, and spent a little time imagining what the sights sounds and smells would once have been.


Bermondsey Leather Market.—This great leather, or rather hide market, lies in Weston-street, ten minutes’ walk from the Surrey side of London-bridge. The neighbourhood in which it stands is devoted entirely to thinners and tanners, and the air reeks with evil smells. The population is peculiar, and it is a sight at twelve o’clock to see the men pouring out from all the works. Their clothes are marked with many stains; their trousers are dis-coloured by tan; some have apron and gaiters of raw hide; an about them all seems to hang a scent of blood.’

Charles Dickens (Jr.), Dickens's Dictionary of London, 1879


As London patterns are a theme with Step Outside Guides at the moment (don’t forget our competition!) I noticed them everywhere I looked. By the time we reached St Thomas’ hospital we were all rather soggy, but still able to appreciate the beauty of the architecture and green courtyards.


There were many more prize snippets, including a great ghost sign for Thomson Brothers Ltd in Bermondsey Street, (I can feel a ghost signs blog coming on) but I don’t want to reveal all for those of you who may do the walk. Talking about her walkshops our guide says ‘Did you know that inspirare means to inhale in Latin? Think about it.’

I can’t wait to re-walk the area – ideally in the sunshine, inhaling London as I go!

Over the last couple of years I’ve noticed a glass and wood and metal sausage making its appearance in front of the HSBC and Barclays Towers near Canary Wharf in the heart of London's Docklands. It is large, intriguing and clearly visible across the water from the Poplar – Canary Wharf stretch of the DLR. Only recently did I find out that it is the Canary Wharf Crossrail station that has been taking shape before our very eyes.


I was delighted to learn that it is now open to the public, (though the trains won’t run until 2018) and since I was nearby for a meeting last week, I decided to take a detour to have a look inside the shiny sausage. As an investigator of free things in London for families, I couldn’t wait to have a nose round.


Entry to the station is very space-age, through a tunnelled bridge over West India dock. Once inside there are several floors of shops and restaurants, which aren’t all open yet, and way down on Floor -3, deep under the dock itself, are the Crossrail platforms. But the star of the show is at the top, not the bottom of the building. An escalator or lift from the tunnel bridge entrance takes you to the roof garden. I wasn’t sure what to expect as I stepped off the top of the escalator into the garden. Well, I was blown away! The garden is much bigger than I expected – almost a park - and attractively laid out with windy paths, trees and lots of planting, including tomatoes and beans. I was pleased to see how many of the plants there are growing in my own garden! The struts holding the glass roof are wooden, and perhaps because it is new, the smell of fresh wood was very noticeable as I arrived. Lovely! The central part of the garden has no roof, so there is a good circulation of air.


The garden isn’t crowded, and seems very laid back. Although there are a few security people around, there is none of the advance booking and airport style security required by the Walkie Talkie to visit their Sky Garden. My only criticism is that there aren’t many seats, so it may not work for workers or visitors wanting to relax and eat their sandwiches, but it is well worth a visit and I’d recommend anyone to go and have a walk through if they find themselves in Docklands. It’s a bit of a bonus that the garden has opened up for us to enjoy so far in advance of the station starting operations.


If you do visit there, or anywhere else in London, in the next couple of weeks, you will also have the opportunity to see and take photos of patterns that catch your eye. Send them in to our London Pattern photo competition for the chance to win a box of Step Outside goodies, including Guides a back pack and more. So get snapping, and get sending; we're looking forward to hearing from you!

You may have noticed that we have been posting photos of ‘London Patterns’ on both Facebook and Twitter. I have had a lot of fun trawling through the acres of London photos I’ve taken with my trusty camera over the last few years, picking out patterns to share with you all.


And now it’s your chance!

Have you spotted any London patterns as you’ve been out and about? Or perhaps you haven’t noticed them before. Well, now is your chance!


We are holding a COMPETITION! From now until the end of May, send us your favourite photos of ‘London Patterns’. You can tweet them to @StepOutsideLDN, send them to our Facebook page, Step Outside Guides, to our website using the contact page, or email us at info@stepoutsideguides.com.


CLOSING DATE; 31st MAY 2015


On 1st June we will pick two winners and send each of them a box of Step Outside goodies. One prize is for anyone, and the other is for children under 12. So get exploring, get snapping and send your London Patterns to us.


Here are a few things you could look for. There are all different sorts of patterns, for example –


1) Large scale design, like the South Bank tables – there is something satisfying about the regular repetition of a unit – windows in a large building, even the pattern of bog standard bricks.

2) The orderliness of perspective! The vanishing point of an image is a touch magical, and there are many great photos and paintings that employ this effect. My more modest example here is the photo of Boris Bikes.

3) Things that are intrinsically decorative, like the roof Margie started the whole thing off with, or the Buxton Memorial. London is awash with a huge variety of decorative effects on its buildings and they delight the eye on any walkabout in the capital.

4) The juxtaposition of colours. Many of London’s buildings are either grey or glass, and areas of bright colour light up their surroundings in a wonderful way, like the pictures below the subway at Tower Hill.

5) The transformational effect of sunlight adds a whole new dimension to a scene – Green dock comes alive with bright sunlight and deep shadows contrasting each other.


Our rules are;

The photos must be taken by you. Please don’t take any from the Internet, as this can lead to all sorts of trouble!

In sending in the photos, you grant us permission to use them on our social media channels.

If you are a professional photographer, please let us know.


Good luck and enjoy!

Does anyone else play the tube station name game when they travel into London as a group? It is a family tradition for us; no journey into the big smoke is complete without taking it in turns to give clues. ‘Animal, make of car, show’ donates Oxford Circus, ‘midlands town, shape’ is of course Leicester Square, and so on, with increasing degrees of obtuseness as the game goes on.


For those like me who used to do a daily commute (or indeed still do) these names become familiar and engrained, and each takes on a different image/mood in the mind. But the real reasons behind the names, and the stories associated with them are both diverse and fascinating.


Charing Cross is mentioned in our book ‘IF STATUES COULD TALK’. The small village of Charing was situated here, the word deriving from old English meaning ‘a bend’ – as it was on a bend in the Thames. And the cross? As we explain in our book ‘Way back in 1290, Kind Edward 1’s beloved wife Eleanor died in Lincolnshire. The king marked each nightly resting place along the route to London with a cross. This was the final one….’


It is strange to think that Moorgate was so named because there was a gate cut into the city wall, as long ago as the 15th century, leading to the moorland outside the City Walls. Many other stations are named after gates, or bridges, or terms connected with the river or woodland: Highgate – self-evident, Holborn – a ‘born’ being a river through a hollow valley, Knightsbridge – literally a bridge controlled by knights. It amuses me that at Clapham Common there was once a wood known as ‘Cloppaham’, derived from ‘clap’ meaning hill, and ‘ham’ meaning home. And Common, meaning….Common.. . Neasden is from old English ‘naess’ – nose , and ‘dun’ – hill; basically because of a hill in the area shaped like a nose! Now not a lot of people know that. Or should I say ‘Nose’ that.


Some stations are named after people who lived there: Gloucester Road was near the home of the Duchess of Gloucester, even in 1858 it was still known as ‘Hog Moore Lane’; not as appealing somehow. And Holland Park was named after the Earl of Holland who lived nearby.

Lancaster Gate was so named because a young lady called the Duchess of Lancaster lived there. She later became someone rather important….Queen Victoria no less!


And Piccadilly Circus? From the street Piccadilly which is named after a frilled collar or ‘piccadil’! Roger Baker was a local tailor who made his fortune by making these highly fashionable accessories in the 17th century and he worked in this area.

Station names are an extensive subject, so I will leave it there for now; something to think about next time you are confronted with an Underground map! And if you are interested in learning more, I’d recommend the following books.

Well, weren’t we lucky to be blessed with a beautiful, sunny Bank Holiday on Easter Monday! Having whetted my own appetite with the info about Hampstead Heath and Kenwood House I wrote up for our website last week, Mr S O and I decided to visit ourselves – we hadn’t been there for ages.


Public transport provided its usual Bank Holiday challenge, but we went via a different route, which was interesting in itself, giving an almost constant view of the London skyline as our two carriage train crept around the North of London to Hampstead Heath station.


A quick bit of history; Hampstead Heath was first recorded in the reign of Ethelred the Unready (love that name!) in 986, way before William the Conqueror landed on our shores. The Heath was acquired for public ownership in stages through the 19th century and since 1989 has been maintained by the Corporation of the City of London Corporation. Today it is as delightful as ever, with a variety of ponds and pools, some of which are open to swimmers, ancient woodland, open heathland (of course!) and a wealth of sports facilities.


One of the highlights is Kenwood House, managed by English Heritage and open free of charge to the public. It is a lovely house in its own right, and houses a spectacular collection of paintings, including works by Reynolds, Gainsborough and a number of other top-notch artists – there is even a Vermeer! The room attendants are very helpful and friendly, the paintings are very accessible and there was a very well run children’s trail which loads of families were enjoying.


We ate the Step Outside way, and had brought our own picnic which, when we saw the queues for the café, we realised was a very good idea. What could be nicer than people-watching (and there were loads of people!) in a beautiful open space in the sunshine?


Later we strolled across the Heath, down Parliament Hill and then walked through some lovely streets to Regent’s Park. Then through Regent’s Park to a well earned pint on the Euston Road before getting a train home.


So many of our days out, and so much of my research for Step Outside Guides, is based in central London. It was salutary to be reminded that there are very lovely places just outside the centre. And as we passed Madame Tussaud’s on our way to the station, and found that it costs over £100 for a family to enter, I felt proud of our little guides, which give great days out that don’t cost a bean!

Windows can be opened, washing is re-acquainting itself with the line in the garden and it will not be long before we are promised the ‘hottest summer ever’. To be shortly followed by more moderate reports predicting the ‘hottest summer since last year’!


Where better to Step Outside and take a deep, rejuvenating sniff of spring than in London’s bloomtabulous parks? A quick dredge of my childhood memories, filed under ‘London Parks’, instantly results in many reminiscences.


I can clearly recall the giddy excitement of rolling down the hill at Greenwich Park, and realising halfway down that the slope is longer and steeper than you remember, and that the doughnut wolfed down earlier probably wasn’t a good idea.


Spotting deer in Richmond Park and having to remind yourself that this really is London, so exotic did it seem, and I can easily bring to mind the throbbing pain in my thumb resulting from an attempt to feed a large swan in St James’ Park with a very small crumb of bread! (And yes I know now that you shouldn’t feed them bread, but this was the early 70’s).


One of my first romantic dates with a boyfriend (now a husband) was in Hyde Park; it turned quickly to farce when the deckchair he was sitting on collapsed without warning, but with huge comic effect. One of my earliest ever memories is the seemingly endless trek on little legs through Regents Park towards the tantalizing reward of London Zoo (because Dad had found the cheapest place to park which was several miles away), and the even worse trek back again at the end of a long hot day - summers were always hot ‘back then!’


Of course one of our favourite parks here at Step Outside Guides is the stunning Kensington Gardens, and we are very proud of our most recent publication ‘Kensington Gardens and Beyond’. Our guide shows explorers, both young and old, that there is far more to this glorious oasis and its neighbour Hyde Park than might seem immediately obvious. Spring is the perfect time to go and experience the plethora of daffodils against a most perfect backdrop of a glistening Serpentine. And Hermione will be happy to guide you!


So here’s to spring and making the most of the amazing open spaces almost on our door step. Have fun making memories!

I think this is the most important blog I’ve written. I' hope you will read and share.


It is not a new observation that London is a cluster of many villages. Historically this is true, and although they merge in to each other now, different areas retain their character and identity. This is one of London’s priceless riches, one of the attributes that make it utterly unique.


In researching Step Outside Guides, I am lucky to be spend hours and hours walking in London – in the grand places, but also in back streets, alleys, unobtrusive lanes and squares, finding delights to share with you wherever I go. London is saturated in history and it is corny but true that every building and every street has a story.


London is also a dynamic city, and is continually changing. A skyline survey, no matter when it is taken, will reveal groups of cranes, and a changing profile as buildings are demolished or built. Some new buildings we like, some we don’t but it is a part of life here. It is also true that when a new building is erected, it has to be in place of something else. Often this doesn’t matter. The post-blitz, cheap and nasty buildings of the 1960s have almost all been replaced with sleek and elegant successors, and the turnover of newer buildings is quite high.


But sometimes, getting rid of the old to make way for the new matters very much. And when lovely old buildings are demolished, it is almost always a short-sighted mistake, made for short-term profit. In the 1970s there was a huge fight to save old Covent Garden Market, threatened with demolition. Imaginative planning and restoration meant that the market opened as a new area for small shops, and is now one of London’s most popular hubs for visitors from near and far.


Similarly, Sir John Betjeman famously spearheaded a campaign to save the fabulous station and hotel at St Pancras, which is now fully restored and the pride of our railway system.


Well, there is another fight to save another lovely part of London underway right now, the threat to which I find quite horrifying. Norton Folgate is an area immediately to the East of the City of London, part of Spitalfields and saturated in history. It is a conservation area, and includes listed buildings. The villain in this piece, British Land, proposes to beat the area into submission, dwarfing the lovely four storey frontages (the buildings themselves will be ripped out) with office blocks immediately behind which will be between nine and thirteen storeys high. So there is the ridiculous possibility of great, modern office blocks with historic frontages stuck on the first four storeys.


The Save Norton Folgate Campaign is working hard to stop this happening. Dan Cruikshank, a protester 40 years ago when British Land last tried to demolish parts of Spitalfields, has made a short video explaining the situation; you can see it here http://t.co/qeXDrEiQhA . If you don’t have time to watch it all, starting at 5.00 minutes will tell you what is happening now, and the campaign’s alternative proposal. As you know, we don’t ask much of you in our blogs but this week I am pleading with you to go to spitalfieldslife.com/2015/02/08/save-norton-folgate and scroll down to the bottom, where there is guidance on sending an email objecting to the development to the planning and building department of Tower Hamlets council. You don’t have to be a resident to object.


If, like us, you love London, please help to protect its gentler parts. And look out for a new Step Outside Guide which will be visiting this area, amongst several others, publishing in 2016.
