May half term is fast approaching and with it comes the decision of what to do and where to go in London to entertain the kids. With the weather as uncertain as ever, we’ve picked out some suggestions of fun family days out for a rainy day.
There are plenty of fantastic child friendly museums to explore to fill up your half term short break. Here’s our pick:
This fascinating museum is one of the most child-friendly museums in London. It provides plenty for families, including a nature trail, weekend workshops and a hands-on area where children can explore museum objects. We can recommend the Amazon adventure exhibition, the worlds largest and biologically diverse river!
V&A Museum of Childhood
A lot of thought has gone into making this museum child friendly. You’ll find stations in each area with activities using Lego and Stickle Bricks. Additionally there are kids activities on the weekend and other summer holidays. Up until the 01st September an eclectic room installation of mini museums looking at the private world of collecting.
This museum is like time travelling without the Tardis. The May half term break brings hands-on workshops for all ages. There are many family days in the events calendar that will spill out into the glorious gardens (weather permitting, of course!). This museum boasts a walled herb garden and has beautiful period gardens for parents to enjoy too.
These museums offer lots to discover to make for a great day out for all the family. Even more appealing, these museums are free admission for you and your family making your half term family break easy on the wallet.
At Flemings we have a special family package which includes a copy of our exclusive childrens book as well as a selection of welcome goodies.
