I'm currently in London for the bank holiday weekend and I'm supposed to be leaving today. Last night the foldable buggy I use for travelling broke. I don't know where or how to get it fixed. I've looked on Shpock and Gumtree for a cheap one to buy near to where we're staying but I don't have much money and they're all really expensive. I got the bus and train here. What can I do?

Argos might be good for a cheap one? Find a "chain" charity shop and see if they can locate a buggy?

How much is your broken one worth? Unless pricey you might be better off binning it.

How old is baby? If over 6 months you can get a basic one in Argos for about £20. No raincover though, doesn't recline. Just something to stick them in for the time being.

Charity shop? Or bag up your stuff as best you can in as few bags as possible and carry your DC.

Unless your broken one is new enough to complain about, in which case is try to get it back to wherever you bought it.

Argos would probably be your best bet or a charity shop hope you find one.

Could you use a baby sling / carrier ( depending on weight / age? Again look on fb selling groups / gumtree?
