I am very excited to be co-hosting my first CULTURED KIDS, together with the cultural champion that is Catherine over on Catherine’s Cultural Wednesdays. So, what’s it all about? Every two weeks I will be hosting a Linky which allows other bloggers to load up their cultural posts on this page, and posting a cultural article aimed at kids of all ages, and in my case, of a London-centric nature!
And what a busy month May promises to be. A Little Princess is on at Southbank for one night only, the Covent Garden May Fayre Puppet Show will be punching it out on the 13 May, and it’s the Royal Wedding on the 19th! Matthew Bourne’s Blitzed version of Cinderella is showing on cinema screens across the country, and the magical Peter Pan opens at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre. The Royal Academy’s new campus opens its doors, and if you haven’t seen it yet, a visit to Monet and Architecture is a must-see with the kids.

TRULY MADLY KIDS
1 – Lohr am Main – the Snow White Town by Daisy the Bus. Less of the Disneyfication and more of the truth behind the Grimm Fairy Tale.
2 – Best Museums in DC by DQTravel. Washington DC is well served by museums, and this post details why kids love them so much.
3 – Ten things to do in Hanoi. Travelling in Asia with children can be overwhelming, but Families Go Travel highlight 10 ways that your kids will love.
ZEN BABY TRAVEL
1 – A photo tour of Alberobello, a UNESCO World Heritage site in Puglia, Italy by The Pigeon Pair and Me. Who could resist to Unesco world heritage sites in Italy?
2 – Terrific Toronto Street Art (and where to find it) by Bright Lights of America. Even without knowing Toronto, we felt transplanted into arty colourful street vibes! We love Banksy and were quite intrigued and amused by the other artists snapshots and Insta extracts.
3 – Rails, Rail stations and Rouen by Ushasita for reminding us the charms and poesy of the trains as well as putting Rouen back to our travel plans; a city we explored but spent too much partying with friends hence slightly neglected the stunning Gothic architecture.
