Four fun family days out to end the summer holidays with in London

23 August 2019 | Billie Manning

Exhausted every board game under the sun? Can’t take another day at the playground? Teenage rage levels rising to volcanic levels? We’ve got just the tonic with these exciting activities.

Twirlywoos
If you have any really tiny tots in your clan, they probably already love the Twirlywoos on telly. Now they can see them live in this engaging and fun puppetry show as part of the Underbelly Festival on the Southbank, in which Toodloo, Great BigHoo, Chickedy, Chick and Peekaboo embark on a new adventure onboard their Big Red Boat. Recommended for ages one and up, Twirlywoos are sure to enchant the little ones – and give you 55 minutes of precious peace and quiet.
   
Fly Me To The Moon at the Science Museum
Feel like sending the kids to another planet? At the Science Museum, you can get halfway there by sending them on a mission to discover the Moon. There’s a whole load of activities celebrating 50 years since the moon landing and this free science show will be on until the very last day of the summer holidays. Plus, you and the kids will learn all about pooing in space – sure to be a favoured dinnertime topic for months.
 
Zip Now London at Archbishop's Park Lambeth
Feeling zippy? Adults and children alike will enjoy this adrenaline-filled experience at Lambeth’s Archbishop’s Park. A 225m long zipwire, on which you’ll reach speeds of up to 50km/h: the biggest and fastest city-centre zipwire in the world. The experience comes in at a hefty £30 quid, so this is certainly a treat – but don’t you all deserve one for surviving all the way to the end of August? Get a 25% discount when booking their 'me plus 3' family saver ticket.
   
Peter Pan at Troubador Theatre
One for the West Londoners – get a head start on Christmas with a performance of Peter Pan on the site of the former BBC Media City. It’s the first production at the brand new Troubadour Theatre in White City and is performed by National Theatre, so it’s sure to be a stellar production. And it’s all worth it for the look on the kids’ faces when Peter begins to rise magically into the air.
