tried & tested

Tried & Tested blogs are a great way for us to share amazing venues and attractions with you. We visit lots of local venues and attractions ourselves and write about our experiences.

We are also happy to share 'Reader Recommendations' too as we know just how important it is to hear from other parents.

If you would like to arrange a Tried & Tested blog at your attraction by Mum's guide to Romford,  please contact us here.

Reader Recommends: Stubbers Adventure Centre


One of our followers, Kate, has been in touch to tell us about her trip to Stubbers Adventure Centre to explore the new adventure play area.

She told us "We took the kids to the new Stubbers Play Area on Sunday in Upminster and it was absolutely amazing! Our children are 6 and 10 and they loved it! Really suitable for that age! Play area fantastic, you can hire peddle boats £6 and the discovery trail around the lake was lovely! The cafe so clean and Covid safe! The toilets are also very clean. You needed to book and it’s £3 child and £4 adult I think! Well worth it tho!"

Doesn't this look great fun?
