Summer Holidays

Family friendly offers

Who can deny that they love a good deal? With 3 kids eating proper meals now, our visits to restaurants tend to revolve around cheap kids meals and cheap alcohol, joking, its more likely to be the quality of their hanging baskets these days than their offers on shots! We’re always on the lookout for family friendly offers to make days out that little bit kinder on the wallet, have a look below for some of our finds……

Free museums in London

If your kids are young then its unlikely that they’ll manage a whole day in a museum, that’s why the free museums are great as you can stay as long as you wish without feeling you’ve spent loads. Why not take advantage of one of the train travel deals below and make a short visit to one of the fantastic free museums listed. You could then wander to one of the huge parks for a picnic, our kids loved walking past the guards at Buckingham Palace and watching the horses.

RAF museum North London

Imperial War Museum Lambeth

Natural History Museum

Science Museum

Here’s a great map of central London to help plan your day http://trust2013.sba-research.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/Walking-map.pdf
