We headed over to Canary Wharf this weekend to visit the MoL Docklands and on the way we went to the new crossrail roof garden which was great! It’s not massive but the roof garden has lots of winding paths that our little man absolutely loved charging along, looking for (imaginary) dinosaurs in amongst the trees and ferns. The garden is well kept and there were two pianos that were around for people to just sit and play!
After a good run around in the garden we went over to the Museum to play in the brilliant Mudlarks children’s gallery. It’s such a great gallery with soft play, building blocks, ropes and pullies and water play that all relates brilliantly to the museum’s themes and is really interactive.
The sessions are timed to avoid overcrowding but the museum wasn’t too busy so we were able to just join the current time slot.It’s so nice to have a dedicated, genuinely hands on under 5’s gallery that’s safe and contained and that is so well integrated into the museum that it doesn’t feel like an add on.
But the whole museum is family friendly too so once we had dried off from our water play we headed up into the Sailor town gallery which is a great immersive street scape.
We will be back soon!
