Jos & Annette: congratulations on your good news!
I have a 6-month old baby and can mostly give you tips on being with a baby in SE1.
I like the Tate Modern
(especially member's room if you are a member) and Southwark Cathedral
cafe: easy-going places where you do not feel utterly out of place. Tas Restaurant is indeed child-friendly. The Bermondsey on Bermondsey Street
has also been a safe haven. Avoid Fish!
restaurant: they have no concept of what one needs when out with a baby and they are definitely NOT smoke-free, despite what they might say.
There is a Yoga/Pilates place in Bermondsey Street
(but expensive). Otherwise get in touch with Charterhouse-in-Southwark
, on Tabbard Street. They run Pilates classes a very reasonable prices. Otherwise I am still to find a swimming-pool with a creche (I carry on dreaming...) or a parent & baby club within walking distance.
Please get back to me on any other ideas you may have, it looks like there are enough of us to start a club!
