London with Lennon.

Lennon went to London!

I have wanted to go to London with Lennon for a while now as I love to visit the place myself. There is so much to do in London and I really wanted to see how it would be travelling on trains with a buggy.

On Monday 26th March I had to go into London to get Lennon to get his passport done in the passport office, I had an appointment there at 4:15pm. I took my friend Lily with me as I really didn’t know how I would find getting on and off the trains. We went early to make a day of it, done some shopping and got lunch.

Lennon didn’t really like the journey from Watford Junction to Euston and he screamed so much I had to get him out but for the rest of the day he was fine, Thankfully.

I was very surprised that most train stations have lifts and we only had to use the escalators like 2/3 times. The escalators was the thing I was worried about the most but actually it was pretty easy. I would just recommend not having too much stuff on the buggy so it’s not too heavy. If you can have someone with you it would be a lot easier too but I think I would be comfortable going in by myself now. I needed to know if I was capable to do this for Lennon’s Modelling shoots as most of them are based in London.

We was very lucky and got a ramp when we got on the train at Watford Junction as 3 ladies with wheelchairs were getting on, so this meant we could use the ramp to get off too. We didn’t really need to as the gaps aren’t as big anymore but we just used it anyway.

I have the silver cross wayfarer travel system and next time I have to travel to London I will probably use the car seat part that can attach to the frame as I feel this will be a lot lighter and easier to use on the escalators. I am aware that you aren’t supposed to keep baby’s in the car seat for too long and trust me he won’t be as I stop for coffee about 2683462534 times.

Soon I will be travelling on a plane with Lennon for the first time so I will be writing about that too.

    I’m glad you had a good experience of London! I’ve only been in once with BG and had a bit of a nightmare time… we had planned the journey around tube stations with lifts and step free access but found all the lifts to be out of order – just bad luck I guess!

    We took BG on her first flight when she was 3 months old and it turned out to be easier than I’d worked it up to be in my head! I’m not sure the next one will be quite as easy when she’s 22 months later this year though! Hope your flight goes well!

      Ahh thats very unlucky. We are flying on 1st may and Lennon will be just over 4 months. I have been told its easier when they are younger x
