Keep the kids entertained with a trip to London this half-term
With the February half-term less than a fortnight away, parents up and down the country are beginning to worry about how to keep their kids out of their hair and out of trouble for the duration of the week.
If you're not sure how to achieve this and need some help then why not take them to the capital for a few days of fun and excitement? Chances are this will be as enjoyable for you as it will for them.
That's because there are loads of excellent attractions in London that are suitable for visitors of all ages, so you certainly won't be short of things to do.
For example, you may want to begin with a trip to the Imperial War Museum to see the hugely popular Horrible Histories: Spies exhibition.
Based on the popular kids' book by Terry Deary, the display looks at the fascinating world of espionage during World War II, and features a number of interactive elements that kids can explore in order to test their own spy credentials, as well as learning more about this hugely interesting aspect of 20th century history.
A number of special events will be held alongside the exhibit during half-term, so if you've not visited the museum before then this is the perfect time to do so.
Alternatively, you may wish to take a trip to the South Bank Centre for the Imagine Children's Festival, which will be running from February 10th to 23rd, which will see a range of fun-filled activities, shows, workshops and more taking place throughout half-term, so there'll be very little danger of your kids getting bored.
Of course, these are just two suggestions for things to do in London with children, although there are in fact many, many more excellent attractions in the city that are just perfect for the school holidays. Not least among these is Warner Bros Studio Tour London: The Making of Harry Potter.
Located in Watford, the studios were used to film many of the scenes from the Harry Potter movies, and stepping into JK Rowling's world of wizardry is not something that your kids will forget in a hurry.
