We at Kids’ People are always looking to find new ideas for days spent with the kids! Here are some of our favourites…
Drama Queens and Kings
Explore behind the scenes of the National Theatre. During school holidays, workshops and backstage tours allow families the chance to see stages and the set and prop workshops. Prices start at £5. Opening times are: Mondays to Saturdays: 9:30am-11pm, and 12pm-6pm most Sundays throughout the year.
London City Farms
If your little rascals love animals there is no better healthy and happy day out for all the family than paying a visit to one of the many City Farms. Your little ones can become Farmers for a Day at Deen City Farm or could meet Bayleaf the Donkey whilst picking their own veg at Spitalfields City Farm. Whichever one you choose, you will have a great time, making memories and supporting local communities – maybe even catch a weekly pig race! (Hounslow Urban Farm).
The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
A 250 year old botanical garden with fun for all the family. The 18-meter-high treetop walkway is a fab attraction for those brave little explorers! Where others can wiggle through tunnels and slide down giant plants at the indoor play zone. Adult admission: £13.50 – Kids go FREE! Kew Gardens opens daily at 9:30am.
Battersea Park Zoo/Adventure Playground
Battersea Park Zoo is home to small animals including otters, capuchins and chinchillas, with an interactive play area. Be a Keeper for the Day, attend Story Time Mondays or visit the animals during feeding times, which can be found on the website. Adults: £9.50, Children: £7.50, Family Tickets: £31.00
The Adventure Playground at Battersea Park is like no other; there are so many exciting places to swing, jump, crawl, climb and go exploring. The playground itself is free, and has a snack shop by the entrance, however in the summer there are rides and inflatable structures that cost £1.50 per activity. If you’re feeling really adventurous there is also a Go Ape Park on the site.
Greenwich Royal Parks and Museums
Take in the views, explore the museums and stand on the point of the Meridian line, the reference point for Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). Entrance to the National Maritime Museum and the Park is free, with the park open daily from 6am. A link to combined ticket prices for the museums is below, including attractions such as the Cutty Sark and Observatory.
Not forgetting the beauty of Hyde Park! And mostly free! Swim, skate, ride a horse, or simply take a picnic to Hyde Park, London’s largest central park! Our fave is Captain Hook’s huge wooden pirate ship at the Diana Princess of Wales Memorial playground…
Here’s to fun, creativity and spontaneity now that spring is finally approaching!
