Places to visit with kids


With half term not so far away now do you have any day’s out planned and exciting places to visit with kids.

I have been looking back over places we have visited and enjoyed, we would like to share them all with you. We are rather lucky to live within walking distance to a choice of three train stations and only twenty minutes from London, this is where we normally find ourselves heading during school holidays and find fun places to visit with kids.

Here is a list of some places we have visited recently and enjoyed.

Cutty Sark – We had a fun morning here back in October. Would you like to venture aboard and beneath one of the world’s most famous ships, if you do you will have a great time doing so.

Bloomsbury theatre – We enjoyed watching a family show here just before Christmas, there is so much going on here, from music to comedy, from dance to drama, plus much more. Located in the central London.

Theatre503 – Fancy going to a theatre with a difference, that is very surprising, then Theatre 503 would be the place. It is Located in Battersea park road.

Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! London

Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! London

A Day Of All Things Mysterious

Ripley’s believe it or not! London showcases more than 700 astonishing artifacts being displayed over 6 floors in interactive galleries, these include fascinating, incredible, bizarre and very mysterious.

With our boy’s being teenagers they do love things out of the ordinary and as it was the six weeks holiday’s the boredom sets in rather fast for teenagers so Ripley’s was definitely a place I knew they would love to visit and really enjoy themselves as Ripley’s offer a fascinating mixture of entertainment, facts and figures.

Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! London

It was amazing to see how many bizarre things you can see under one roof, they all ranged from Amazonian shrunken heads, there was also a 8ft scale model of the famous titanic made of more than 147,000 match sticks, there was an upside down room, Lee is a big fan of Micheal Jackson’s music and loved the candy portrait of him, Ian loves Ferrari’s and loved the full size Ferrari they had on display made of 12 miles of yarn.

On our tour round we had great fun measuring ourselves next to the worlds tallest man, and weighing ourselves up next to the worlds heaviest man, the boys had great fun getting as many of us as possible on the scales until we matched the weight, we also had great fun trying to find our way out the marvellous mirror maze, this took us longer than we thought but it was great fun racing each other out.

We Was All Amazed

We was amazed to see what can be made out of things that we all have lying around in our homes, we saw all different kinds of art using toilet paper, keyboard letters, candy, cigarette ash, even lipstick, Bradley loves his art and really enjoyed seeing all of this before getting creative on the graffiti wall.

On our way round the boys enjoyed the black hole, this was a rotating vortex tunnel, this was rather a strange feeling as your senses get put to the test, the boys found this an amazing experience.

We finished our tour with the boys racing against the clock doing the lase race, they both got very competitive at this, they both tried to beat each other and see who can complete it the fastest, seeing who hit the minimum amount of beams and to see who was the fastest, points are awarded for speed, agility and success.

Here is our photo album of our experience of Ripley’s believe it or not! London
