London Bleisure Travel with The Kids? Here’s Where You Need to Book

In recent years there’s been a growing trend in business travellers opting to bring their families with them on trips to the UK. The demand for family business travel or ‘B-leisure’ is thought to be a result of the changes in the way we work and the way we raise our children.

Cuckooz x The Modern Nursery

London serviced apartment provider Cuckooz are one of the first to open an apartment catering specifically for family business travel. They’ve teamed up with award-winning social lifestyle store The Modern Nursery to provide the ultimate in accommodation for young families needing to be in the heart of London.

Cuckooz co-founder Charlie Rosier says “Serviced apartments are a far more suitable option when looking for a home away from home with the space and amenities to accommodate a family… We wanted to take this a step further and shoulder some of the weight that comes with travelling with young ones in particular.”
