Half-term fun on offer at the Museum of London
Families staying in central London hotels over the forthcoming half-term should consider a trip to the Museum of London.
The attraction is putting on a number of special events aimed at children and provides a fun but educational look back at the varied history of the capital.
During a visit, people can discover more about prehistoric London, the impact of the Romans and the arrival of the Saxons, as well as the battle against the Black Death and the Great Fire of London.
From February 16th to 24th, there will be workshops held for children to learn various Victorian playground games and design historic plaques to honour important people.
Storytelling sessions are also on offer at Grimaldi's Park, which is named after the famous UK clown.
The Galleries of Modern London is one of the attraction's main highlights and enables visitors to walk along a Victorian street plus take a detailed look at the Lord Mayor's impressive coach.
Entry to the Museum of London is free of charge and there is no cost for taking part in the workshops. It is open seven days a week from 10am to 6pm.
The Museum of London can be found on London Wall at the Aldersgate Street junction and the nearest London Underground stations are Barbican, St Paul's and Moorgate.
There is also a partner museum in the London Docklands area, close to the Canary Wharf London Underground station, that looks at the capital's rich history of shipping and global trade.
