If you’re planning on visiting London with your young children during half term, we have a few suggestions of things you can do to keep the family entertained. Make this half term a special one with memories to last a lifetime.
The Making of Harry Potter
This is one for all the family. You can spend the entire day at The Making of Harry Potter on the real set that was used to create the Harry Potter film series. Step onto the iconic sets, get up close and personal with the props and you can even taste Harry’s favourite tipple, butterbeer.
Horniman Museum & Gardens
The Horniman Museum has been open since Victorian times. The English tea trader, Frederick John Horniman opened his exquisite house to the public to share his extraordinary collection of objects which he gathered during his travels all over the world. There is also a tropical indoor garden which is home to hundreds of free-flying butterflies. Why not bring the kids and spend a day exploring and learning more about these beautiful species.
Deen City Farm
Who says you need to leave London to visit a farm. Deen City Farm is one of London’s oldest farms and is based in South West London. It’s an urban farm with an educational focus. The farm is open all year round, 6 days a week. Why not pop by to visit the 200 animals. You’ll be able to meet an alpaca, chickens, cows, ducks, goats, pigs and lots more.
Little Red Riding Hood
The Polka Theatre in Wimbledon creates theatre for young children. From 25-29 October, Little Red Riding Hood will be running throughout the day. The show is recommended for ages 3 to 8. There’s also a beautiful café inside which has the perfect play area where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch or a snack. The theatre is a unique place where children can let their imaginations run wild.
