about us

From bumps to teens and everything in between we've got it covered. Mum's guide to Romford is a one stop site for all the clubs, groups, classes and events you will need on your journey as a parent.

I'm Jane and I have lived in Romford since my son was born 7 years ago, so although I am not technically a local, I am a mum and I am always on the lookout for new and exciting things we can do together. 

Since becoming a mum I've discovered just how difficult it can be to find out what's going on in your local area - no matter where that might be! Mum's guide to Romford solves all of that. We provide a comprehensive guide to the area, listing hundreds of activities you might like to try with your kids. Just take a look and see for yourself. We have children's activities, things to do, family friendly events as well as listings of local services you might need. 

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 this added to the site. 



About Mum’s Guide To Ltd

Mum's Guide To Ltd began in 2012 when four mums from Harpenden set-up a website to give local families in a comprehensive, one-stop shop to find all the information they needed about living in the area with children.  The site quickly grew to become the most popular site for Harpenden parents and carers. In 2017 the mums decided to spread their wings by launching Mum’s guide to UK giving parents across the country the opportunity to set up their own local Mum’s Guide To sites.

Our philosophy is quite simple:

  • Each site focuses on a single town and is run by local parents.
  • It covers children of all ages from bumps to teens.
  • It’s as comprehensive as possible - covering activities and things to do, parties, local facilities, services and child-friendly businesses.
  • We are pro-active about seeking out new businesses and keeping the information up-to-date.
  • A basic listing is always free so even the smallest groups and new businesses can be included.
