What The Citizen Enfants Team Are Up To This June

Wondering what to do with children this June? Summer is here and there’s plenty of sunny, fun days out to plan.

From cultural days out and chic family getaways, to stylish junior fashion finds and go-to restaurants, here’s what the Citizen Enfants team are up to this June. Think trips to the beach, family-friendly festivals and hotels that are perfect for children.

Sheena Bhattessa, Founder


VISIT The 20th Anniversary Festival at Daylesford will be such a lovely family day including ‘meet our animals’, fairground rides, entertainment from Sharky & George and storytelling for kids. There’s plenty for adults too, including live music and comedy, wellness sessions, tent talks, hot air balloon rides and more. BOOK Little Bo Peep at the Lyric Hammersmith – with puppets, impressive scenery and lots of music and singing. BUY I’m looking forward to some lovely outdoor entertaining (now that the sun is shining) so am investing in the new tableware collection from the Muzungu Sisters. TRY Re:Charge Breathwork at Re:Mind for when your mind and body require you to lie down – preferably on an organic cotton cushion – and simply breathe. The lunchtime Re:Charge class helps you feel focused and relaxed with a guided meditation to soothe and energise you for the rest of the day.

STAY At the newly opened Estelle Manor in Oxfordshire for a summer weekend away with the kids. There’s lots of things to do and a stunning outdoor pool. VISIT The Wave near Bristol. It’s the UK’s biggest inland man-made surfing lake and generates 1000 waves per hour – perfect for surfing practice. ATTEND Sunday 11 June is Chesterton’s Polo in the Park Family Day in Fulham. It’s sure to be a great event with entertainment from children’s party planners extraordinaire, Sharky and George. SEE Lift 109 at Battersea Power Station. This glass elevator soars 109 metres to the top of the north-west chimney for 360 degree views of London’s skyline. A very cool experience that I can’t wait to share with my kids. BUY The new Sleepy Night Light from Tonies is the perfect gift for a little one as it plays 90 minutes of beautifully composed melodies or you can record your own personal goodnight message. WEAR School sports days and barbecues call for summer dresses: I’ll be wearing my new shirt dress from Wiggy Kit and favourite sandals from A Piedi. USE The Sunny Life cooler bag is perfect for keeping drinks and snacks cool on days out.

STAY At Four Seasons Hampshire for the abundance of activities on offer for children: horse riding, water park, playground and more. It’s only a short journey from London and is set in beautiful countryside. PLAY Summer days are made for being outside and we spend almost every weekend at The Hurlingham Club. EXPERIENCE Over half term we really enjoyed the art classes from Art Barn – I would highly recommend this for little ones who want to explore their creative side. EAT Family lunches at Oliveto on Elizabeth Street for family-friendly pizza. My girls love it here, and the restaurant is very welcoming of children. BUY I’m thinking about my little one’s summer wardrobe and this baby bucket hat from Alicia Swim with matching swimsuit is too sweet. I think she will love it!

Gudrun Wurm, founder of Little Butterfly London


STAY We’ll be going to Villa Marie in St. Tropez. It’s a gorgeous boutique hotel among shady pinewoods. I can’t wait to get warmed up by the pool once again. BUY I desperately need a new bikini for our trip and I’m looking at Heidi Klein and Melissa Odabash, which are typically my go-to brands for swimwear.  TRY We stayed at Lime Wood for the long Coronation weekend and – though proven and tested – it was my first time and it was fantastic: cosy, beautiful, super stylish and with amazing food and service. We had a wonderful time cycling through the woods. EAT My latest discovery is Gordon Ramsey Street Pizza at Battersea Power Station. We visited for my son’s 12th birthday. It has a lovely vibe and the ‘bottomless pizza’ principle is great fun. As we walked back home to Chelsea we stopped for delicious ice-cream on Fulham Road at Badiani 1932, with recipes from their original gelateria in Florence. BUY Lots from Haley Menzies With plenty of gorgeous colours and fun designs, the new collections are perfect for the sunny summer weather, they really bring freshness with a feel-good mood.

SEE We are off to see Harry Styles at Wembley and are also heading to Glastonbury – so it’s going to be a very musical June for us. EAT I am really excited that Soho River House has reopened on the river in Windsor, it is such a fun place to go with the kids as there is an inflatable Stonehenge, boules and table tennis to amuse them, as well as crafts for smaller kids. They have a DJ and the usual great Soho House food and drinks to entertain the grown ups too. When the sun is shining, it’s a magical place to be. TRY I have recently discovered MERIT make up and really like it, particularly the cheek sticks. USE I always have a pack of cards on me; my boys are now eight and 11 so I no longer need to carry around a bag of entertainment and colouring books..all I need is the cards. STAY I am looking forward to visiting The Hare & Hounds Inn in Windermere, it’s a beautifully decorated pub with really great food. The lakes are such a special place to visit and the perfect place to take kids.
