A Family Holiday by Vikki Harris

The concept of a family holiday can feel intimidating for some of us. Abandoning the safety of our homes to explore the unknown and not an electronic device in sight.

Swerving the queues at the airport in favour of a family-friendly holiday closer to home is not a compromise. Our great country has so much to offer and a pub staycation is all about relaxing. Zero pressure. No frills, pomp or circumstance. It’s all about revelling in the unique sensation of having absolutely nowhere to be. No timeframes or strict parameters, no rushing whatsoever. Even nap time can go frivolously out the window.

With the good news that UK getaways are permitted once again, and expectations of another sensational summer on the cards there’s every reason to get booking that UK staycation.

The UK has some incredible destinations to explore but whatever your age or your interests one place that never fails to impress with its bright lights and capital sights is London. A cornucopia of cultural and historical references, renowned for an eclectic nightlife and incredible shopping, London offers something for everyone no matter of your age or your interests.

New look for locals favourite, The Windmill in Clapham

Local favourite, The Windmill on Clapham Common, has had a gorgeous makeover for spring - spruced up, shiny and looking forward to welcoming guests to its new garden and for indoor dining from 17th May.

Expect elegant new light-filled spaces, modern furniture, and eye-catching design features complete with feature walls and a group Moriarty drinks table for catching up on all those missed moments. The new Solarium comes with plush booth seating and splashes of greenery, including a plant wall, whilst the revamped al fresco all-weather garden has everything you need for a summer of socialising.

Pair this with all-day British seasonal menus running from brunch to a cracking Sunday Roast, and a wide selection of craft ales and spirits, all surrounded by the greenery of the common, and The Windmill is a go-to destination for south west Londoners.
