Welcome! We hope you enjoy this fantastic new facility...
As a member, you can search our extensive database to find details of places to visit, shops to discover as well as local clubs, classes or nurseries and much more - letting others know what you think is 'hot' or not by leaving a review. To help you find what you want and in the way that you need it, you can choose to make your searches in a number of ways:
Here, for example, you can search by choosing a section (such Days Out) in your county (i.e. Hertfordshire) – this will return results across multiple categories (Farms, Zoos, Cinemas) which are located in the Hertfordshire county only. You can then sort your search by A-Z, by category, or nearest to your postcode.
If you want to find the nearest company, service or venue to you, this is the best option. So, if you are looking for a nursery school, you can narrow your search by choosing the relevant category (select Education, then Nursery) and then enter your full postcode. If you enter only the first part of your postcode (such as SW2) this will identify all nurseries with an SW2 postcode.
This is a great option if you just want to find the number for a local toy shop that you already know - or want to tell other mums how great it is (eg Just Williams, Herne Hill). Start typing the name and if we've got it, you'll see it. If we haven't then, please suggest that we include it on our database by clicking on Adding A Listing.
If you’d just like to check out what’s on your doorstep, you can search across all categories nearest your postcode. This will return a mixture of categories closest to you with a radius of 5 miles in London. In all other areas, we have extended this to a reach of 40 miles.
Below you will find some of our chosen listings, which we call our Doorstep Favourites.
Over the last 15 years the Baby Directory has uncovered over 30,000 businesses that are able to help or offer support for mums-to-be and parents across the UK. We have grouped them into the following categories for ease of use. Please select one of the categories from the list below. If you have registered via our Join Now form and you are logged in, the results of your search will be relevant to your postcode.
