May half term is on the horizon and any parent knows what that means – a whole week of activities to keep your kiddies entertained!
If you fancy a staycation, a trip to our capital has everything to suit kids (both big and small). Here’s your half-term bucket list for things to do with your family in London:
- A Trip to the Theatre
If your family loves getting together to watch films on an evening, you should treat the family to a night out at the theatre. Whether you’re into comedies, dramas or musicals, seeing them live is a thrill that can’t be matched! Your children will be thoroughly entertained with kid-friendly theatre shows like The Lion King, Wicked, Aladdin and Matilda – all of which have had rave reviews from critics.
It doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg too, but you can find great deals from websites like Discount London, helping you save up to 67% on ticket prices and giving you a wallet-friendly family day out in London.
- Natural History Museum
Marvel with your kids at the skeleton of an enormous blue whale that welcomes visitors into Hintze Hall… It sets the tone perfectly for the rest of the museum as there’s so much to see and learn!
With plenty of family exhibitions and interactive, hands-on activities, there’s something to keep all ages entertained there. There’s an activity booklet for kids, the opportunity to dress up and you can even skip some of the queues if you book in advance.
- Warner Bros. Studio Tour
If you and your kids are ‘Potterheads’, the Warner Bros. Studio tour that goes behind the scenes of making Harry Potter is perfect for you.
The behind-the-scenes stories will make you feel like you’re completely immersed in the wizarding world, you’ll get the chance to explore the intricate sets, ride a broomstick and even try some of the famous butterbeer.
Just make sure you book in advance as tickets aren’t available to buy at the door and it’s very popular in the school holidays – you won’t want to miss out on this!
- Legoland Windsor
As you might’ve guessed from the name, Legoland is built especially for kids. Best for children between 3 and 12 years old, this theme park is one of the most visited in the UK. And for good reason; the grounds are charming enough to be enjoyed by adults and there are plenty of impressive figures made entirely out of Lego to admire, plus loads of kid-friendly rides and attractions.
Make the most out of your May half term by taking the family to explore the best of what London has to offer. With so much to keep both kids and adults entertained, you’ll want to book another trip in the summer holidays and the October half term too!
