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

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.
From 10am-4.30pm
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:
TUBE: Waterloo
