Christmas is almost upon us! But what will you do to keep your children occupied and learning over the holidays? There’s plenty to choose from…
All aboard for Christmas at the London Transport Museum
Father Christmas is everywhere – hidden away in an old vehicle, ready for a cheeky selfie, or you can wind your way through a magical forest and find him in Santa’s Secret Christmas Cabin. There’s also storytelling, decoration making sessions and collections of vintage Christmas themed posters to browse. More info here.
Pop-Up and Drop-In at the Victoria and Albert Museum
There’s a whole range of activities on at the V&A for all ages this Christmas. From decoration making, choir performances, a gingerbread city and a Christmas rave – it’s got it all. More info here.
(Christmas) Party the holidays away at the Southbank Centre
Where to begin? There’s so much on at the Southbank Centre this Christmas, you are spoilt for choice. There’s a Snow Ball (the dancing kind, not the throwing kind) and a Winter Knee’s Up filled with dancing and storytelling amongst other activities. More info here.
Christmas at Hampton Court
Experience life at Christmas at the famous Tudor Palace that once belonged to King Henry VIII. Watch live demonstrations in the kitchens to find out what festive food they ate to celebrate Christmas. There’s also an ice rink, carol singing and Christmas ghost stories amongst other activities. More info here.
Festive Family Trail at the National Gallery
Take a family walk through some famous wintry landscapes this Christmas. Pick up a trail and a pencil from the Information Desk and then return after your travels to collect a sticker. More info here.
