Upcoming daddy / 14yo daughter day…. What to do?
I’m after some suggestions please folks.
Daughter is a bit alternative/emo-ish if that helps, happy to travel a bit (from the Midlands). She was completely blown away by a trip to Camden market a few months ago, but wasn’t by the Tate Modern, although she can find modern art interesting and thought provoking. She’s not especially outdoorsy, but we’ve done stuff like sailing, go-ape, gentle bike riding which she has enjoyed.

When I was that age I just liked hanging out with my dad. He taught me about cars and made me watch the rugby. Let me play pool with him and his mates (in our pool room I should add, he didn’t take me to the pub !)
Taught me to drive and bought me a car the minute I was 15, so I could pick him up from the pub.
Sorry not very helpful, but you know when your aunty buys you a t-shirt with a bicycle on cos, you know, you like bicycles ? Remember that.Posted 2 years agoBlobOnAStickSubscriber
I do love this place – 4 answers that fit the categories for STW:
The “wow, who knew that was a thing?”: Thanks Stoner, might be too short notice, but it’s in the diary for next year!
The “sound advice”: Thanks hels, duly noted, and yeah, the bike t-shirt. Been there.
The “somewhat condescending”: I do talk to her Van Halen, the difficulty is getting a word in edge ways! (But thanks for replying; roller coasters are definitely her thing but she finds Thoroe park a little tame)
The “yeah, already thought of that”: I might very well take her to Oasis and then see what’s on at Ikon gallery or the custard factory to have a look at. Thanks for the suggestion Rob.Posted 2 years agojonnym92Subscriber
House of Vans is good but you won’t spend a lot of time there unless you’re skating.
You could head out to London again and go to Spitalfields Market (Liverpool St tube), up Brick Lane and then along the Boxpark at Shoreditch? There are plenty of food places, stalls, vintage shops, Rough trade record shop etc, it can get wickedly busy on the weekend mind.Posted 2 years agoBillMCMember
Pitt Rivers museum in Oxford (shrunken heads, totem poles, amulets that make you invisible) then a spot of lunch in a grown up place like the Kings Arms. You might get to walk round the odd college without a booking (Merton maybe). Park and ride works very well. Unlike Potter these are real people poncing around in gowns, she might get all aspirational.Posted 2 years agohatterSubscriber
If she’s at the ‘trad goth’ end of the greebo spectrum I(as opposed to metalhead/emoid) don’t underestimate the appeal of castles, stately homes etc.
Most Gothic types I know have quite an affinity with old architecture, the more arcane looking the better, and have had since they were quite young.Posted 2 years ago
