10 Fun Summer Holiday Activities!

School's out for summer!! Here is our round-up of some of the fab stuff happening in London:

1) Buckingham Palace Gardens
Picnic like a Royal in Buckingham Palace gardens. Open to the public for the first time this summer.

2) Royal Air Force Museum
Get active at the ActiveFest, go head to head with your child in their obstacle course, or take it easy with the parent and baby yoga class. 24th July - 15th August

3) Kew Gardens
'Theatre on Kew' is back with Ratty, Mole, Badger and Otter.. not forgetting naughty Toad with a lively, family-friendly performance of Wind in the Willows. Also, a stunning twilight performance of Midsummer's Nights Dream can be seen in the enchanting picture-perfect gardens.

4) Kew Gardens
Saturday Science Family Learning Workshops are running through the summer holidays between 11 am-4 pm: In these drop-in sessions, families can explore some of the more unusual plants at Kew.

5) Van Gogh Immersive Theatre
Step inside the world of Van Gogh in this multi-sensory immersive experience in the heart of Kensington Gardens - I have heard great things!!

6) Wetlands Centre
This is one for the Lego fans! Follow the giant Lego animal trail at the Wetlands. The Wetlands is always a good idea on a hot day - the water play area is the perfect place to cool down!

7) Natural History Museum
For the wizarding ones amongst us, step into the Fantastic Beasts Exhibition and see where the natural world and the wizarding world intertwine.

8) O2
'Up at the O2' is calling all adrenaline junkies! 9+-year-olds can climb up and over the 02 structure whilst a guide will point out the sights - now that's a different way to see London!

9) Geocaching
In my opinion, Geocaching is the most fun family day - join the worlds largest treasure hunt and find these tiny containers all over your local area - SO MUCH FUN!!

10) Watermans - Brentford
Stand up Comedy for Kids is coming to West London - the fab family-friendly stand up comedians are putting on a show on 5th August. Also, check out the creative and inspiring workshops being run by Watermans during their 3 week Summertime Holiday Festival.

Whatever you get up to this summer - have a great time!
