**We will stop halfway at Paul in Paternoster Square for lunch/coffee and baby change. Alternatively you can have time to go and get food from one of the other food and drink outlets, or if you would rather, bring a a packed lunch.**
‘Bring Your Baby’ Guided London Walks are sensitively devised to suit parents and carers of even the tiniest babies to enjoy London’s history. We can stop whenever you like to feed and change – without the stress of feeling you are holding up the group. Because every participant brings their baby, patience and baby’s needs are at the forefront of each walk.
**You are welcome to bring friends and family who do not also have a baby.**
