Kids can get crafty at London Transport Museum designing a perfect transport poster – or settle in to enjoy a lively puppet theatre show, all especially for October half term. Finish with lunch in our London Underground themed Canteen and you’ve got yourself a great day.

In Greenwich, there’s a brand new outdoor playground at National Maritime Museum. Clamber aboard the ship and take the wheel and come face to face with the giant Cutty Shark! Then relive your adventures in our Parkside Café & Terrace, with a full menu on offer, plus grab-and-go items.

Speaking of outdoor playgrounds, the Adventure Play at Windsor Great Park is like something from a fairy tale: magical, exciting and an adventure for sure. Benugo have cafés for a quick pit stop or Savill Garden Kitchen if you want to take your time and make the most of your day.

Our T.rex Restaurant in the Natural History Museum has a fantastic activity sheet that will keep your little ones busy. There’s crosswords and colouring, plus a competition to win some super dino goodies.

Visit the Shake Bar at the Science Museum. A great place to visit whatever your age... and whatever the weather.

If you need to get some shopping done in the half term, a brand new Espresso & Hot Chocolate Bar has opened in Peter Jones, Sloane Square. After a look around the shops for the adults, it’s hot chocolates all round.

Our café in Young V&A is surrounded by such amazing interiors, you won’t need much else. However we recommend visiting the newly opened Japan: Myths to Manga exhibition; an exciting and atmospheric trip through Japan.

So much to do! The question is, where to start…?
