Kids’ cinema trips
You can still take advantage of family group deals, as well as other offers like Orange Wednesdays. There are loads of deals for kids too. For example, discounted weekly screenings of kids’ movies at Cineworld are a great way of saving cash and treating the family to some weekend movie magic.
The Science Museum
In case your kids get bored of the exhibits though, there’s an on-site IMAX cinema that shows documentaries. Upcoming events to watch out for include The Science Museum Live Energy Show and Typhoon Force, an exhibition of the RAF’s newest Typhoon fighter jet.
Beaver Water World
Essentially an animal rescue centre or sanctuary, Beaver Water World specialises in reptiles, birds and beavers. The latter work all night and sleep for most of the day, so a good time to visit is after lunch, once they’ve risen.
Your kids will be able to handle the beavers too but make sure you call the centre ahead to plan first, as this activity is subject to how many volunteers are present. It’s not just the beavers, either – your kids will get to handle baby snakes as well if they’re not too scared of them that is.
