If you do not have school-age children yet, you likely are not aware that this week is half-term. Many small playgroups will be closed and the museums will be packed but there is still on lot going on for even the teeniest of the Under Five’s in Central London.
The Westminster Children’s Centres and the neighbourhood pools will be open; you should ring ahead just to confirm that the times have not changed. Battersea 1 O’clock club will also remain open from 1 – 4 daily for the under fives.
If you want to fight the crowds, the Museum of London has some amazing activities for the over 3’s, as does the Transport Museum (£10 per adult with no fee for children, or £30 for an annual family pass). The V and A has a ceramic workshop where you can make beads or plates. The Foundling Museum and the National Gallery have storytelling sessions. The Tate has a great Halloween session. Whole Foods Market will have some activities as listed below.
