5 FREE, ARTY and CHILD-FRIENDLY attractions to enjoy in London

Holidays are here! What a great time to get creative, play and explore with your little one. Check out our hand-picked FREE, ARTY and CHILD-FRIENDLY attractions in London. You can also find suggestions of activities designed by us, to make this days-out even more fun and imaginative. Enjoy!

1) Explore Tate Modern and Make a Day-Recording-Drawing

Besides all the exquisite ground-breaking and thought-provoking exhibitions, Tate Modern now also offers a range of exclusive workshops and events for families. Why not make a drawing after your visit, catching up all the favourite moments of the day? Show us your beautiful day-recording-drawings!

Could you and your little one find this painting? Tell us if you did and which masterpiece was your favourite one.

After wandering around through one of the most beautiful and sophisticated art and design exhibitions and enjoying a free family activity, why not have a snack at The John Madejski Garden? The V & A Museum offers a day of exquisite delights for different senses.

4) Listen to an Exquisite Concert (or part of it) at St Martin-in-the-Fields Church and Create Your Own Story

Research shows that when we listen to Classical Music, our brain activity looks like fireworks. At St Martin-in-the-Fields, you can enjoy Lunch Concerts played by top musicians from around the world for free. While you are there, ask your little one to close her eyes and think about a story while hearing to the concert – it is such a lovely game and can also help them to engage better with the whole experience. We would love to listen to those stories! Tell us about it in the comments below.

P.S.: Do not worry about how long your little one can enjoy it – sit in a place which is easy to leave and make your move when the time comes. The cafe downstairs usually has an exquisite apple crumble. It may be time to explore other senses.

Concerts start at 1 pm, on different days of the week. Check out St Martin-in-the-Fields full musical program here.

5) Make a Storyboard at Diana, Princess of Wales’s Memorial Playground

This playground is such an exciting invitation to children’s imagination. Time for your little ones to dive into their best creative work, play and devise their own stories. Bring some paper sheets and crayons, and whenever it is time to cool down, have a break or a snack, check if they fancy drawing and sharing their tales with you.

Which one was your favourite? Let us know in the comments below :)
