Just got back from the beautiful Suffolk coast which is about 2 1/2 hours by car from London so a great seaside weekend getaway! We stayed at the Brudenell Hotel in Aldeburgh, a nice hotel right on the sea front with a very good restaurant (http://www.brudenellhotel.co.uk/default.aspx). They have a sister hotel, the White Lion (http://www.whitelion.co.uk/), a couple of meters further down the seaside promenade, which is maybe more cozy but has smaller rooms so not so great if you have to share the room with a baby...

I have always been a big fan of black cabs (which I tend to refer to jokingly as the "black bus") but have become even more so since having a baby with pram in tow. There is no need for a car seat. You can simply push the pram into the cab, fix the break and off it goes. The only problem until recently was that very often when I wanted a black cab there was none to be found. This was until I had downloaded the Hailo app.
