"the rain makes indoors feel so warm and safe"
Hello and welcome to the latest issue of our weekly newsletter (see previous ones here).
Ok. It's "Back to School" time. It's also time to look for all-weather spaces to cheer up those little souls that need some exercise. Here at Kinfo we love hearing what parents recommend, because they know what works. They know what indoor activities are best. They know that your kids might love it too. Here is a sample of the "indoors" section on Kinfo app. So check them out here or get a little taste below. And if you can't see any of your family's favourites, feel free to add them on the app.
Have a nice weekend (Sunday might be cloudy. And rainy).
Isabelle & the Kinfo Team
Chelsea, London. 4+
There is the climber and the belayer. But at Clip 'n Climb, there are only climbers. With one hour slots (book here), your child will enjoy safely climbing colourful and flashing walls with massive slides and a leap of faith jump. Parents can watch them from the mezzanine, from the bottom of the walls, or from the very nice and kid-friendly cafe/restaurant next door, The Imperial.
Islington, London. All ages
Fully renovated in 2015, the pool now boats a wave machine, giant slides and a sloping beach. It's a public pool where kids can have fun with easy access to tube and bus routes. Opens at 8:30am on a Sunday for the little early birds. See what else a mum of two says about it on Kinfo.
Westfield, London. 4+
Recommended by lots of parents, KidZania is a must. This is a small city where children can learn all sorts of activities and jobs (ok, all marketed by brands). Very safe and well maintained. Ideal age is 7-9, babies are welcome (there is a quieter place with lots of space to crawl around) but it might be a bit "too noisy and dark" for toddlers, as advised by a mum. Another mum says to consider the 2 hour tour at the end of the day (after school) when it's quiter.
Brent Cross, London. 2+
Recommended by a mum of 3, this is a new place to bounce from a very early age. There is a corner for the Under-5s, a Ninja trail for all ages, an Olympic parkour as well as a laser maze for the adventurous pre-teens. Not that crowded. Yet. Book your spot here (great availability this Sunday!). Oh and you can get a "2-for-1 jump" ticket (2 kids jump for the price of 1) every Wednesday.
North Kensington, London. 4+
"Best indoor wall climbing," says this mum about the climbing facilities at Westway. It costs £7 per child for a camp session where professional coaches will supervise your kids. You can also book a personal trainer or you can coach your own children (2 max) once you pass the certification. Register here and book online or call them on 0208 969 0992.
Bayswater, London. 5+
If your kids love skating and/or bowling, this is the place to go. Family friendly (see their offers here), and recently renovated, you can spend a whole day there. "Very cool," said a mum of 2. During September, they also teach your children how to skate - see their timetable.
Stratford, London. All ages
"Best pool in London!" said a dad on Kinfo. With amazing architecture, boasting two 25 metres pools plus a diving pool, it's perhaps the most technology advanced swimming facility in the world (one of the pools has a retractable floor to adjust depth). Designed for all types of swimmers, including little ones, you can enjoy swimming, splashing around or jumping off of the incredible inflatables - book your session (5+) here for the next availability, Sept 26th.
