Summer Holiday Activities 2017
Ideas for FREE activities over the summer holiday
1 Science Museum
The Science Museum in South Kensigton is a treasure trove of fun and interesting activities. The entrance is free. There is an exhibition currently on about the impact of Robots –although this needs to be paid for.
TUBE: South Kensington
COST: FREE ENTRY
2. V&A Museum of Childhood’s Summer Festival
A bit of a journey on the central line to Bethnal Green but the Sunday Festival on the first weekend of the holidays on July 23 looks incredible. They say:
‘The Museum grounds will come alive with a buzzing programme of live music, dance, walkabout acts, designer stalls, food, face paints, henna, rickshaw rides, games and lots for kids to make and do.
TUBE: Bethnal Green
3. The Tate Modern
The Tate modern has had a new gallery extension. Apart from the new collections, the tower boasts a viewing platform that gives a panoramic view of the London Skyline. Cheaper than the London Eye!
TUBE: St. Paul’s -walk across the Thames on the once wobbly bridge.
4. Spend a sunny afternoon on the Southbank
The Southbank is a lovely way to spend an afternoon. Take a riverside walk, browse the book market or spend a balmy early evening paddling in the fountains outside the Southbank Centre. Each weekend the National Theatre will have free performances from their River Stage. See their website for details: nationaltheatre.org.uk/shows/river-stage-2017
