Loving London at night

 We had a terrific Pedal Power Kennington ride tonight up to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park. None of the pupils, from Lilian Baylis and Charlotte Sharman schools, had been before and, as you'd expect, they loved it.
 We had enough money for chips but not enough to have a go on the big rides
 We did have a go at the Throw a Ring over the Glass and Box contest. Unsuccessful, of course, but fun.
On Tuesday we'd ridden to Covent Garden with a couple of the 13 and 14 year-old pupils who also came tonight. Though living maybe three miles away they hadn't been to Covent Garden before either. They loved the decorations, the smells in Lush, the Apple Store, the rules about throwing fruit from the original market, the huge Christmas tree baubles in the roof of the market

and the lights.

I'm very interested in your trips through London with schoolkids.
I am a teacher at a rural school in Cheshire and am interested in bringing a group to London to cycle round the capital.
Please get in touch as I'd like to draw on your knowledge and experience.
