WELCOME TO MUM'S GUIDE TO ROMFORD!

From bumps to teens, we have it covered!  This is your one-stop site for everything you need to know about living in Romford with children including children's activities, things to do and other local services such as health, education and party providers & supplies

Whether you have lived in Romford for years or are new to the area, this website will help connect you with great activities for you and your children, help you to discover what's going on in your area and hopefully help to keep the kids busy and entertained. It will also direct you to details of local medical centres, libraries, Children's Centres, fitness clubs, nurseries and schools - and so much more.

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as that's another great way to keep up to date with what's happening locally.

In the meantime, if you run a local business or event that's relevant to children and families I'd love to hear from you and get you listed on the site. 

NEW - you can now add RECOMMENDATIONS for your favourite businesses! Use our category menu or the search bar to find the listing you want to recommend and click the "Add recommendation" button. You'll be asked to register the first time and then you can add recommendations for as many businesses as you like.
