Given the fact the October half-term is fast approaching, we thought we’d help you make the most of what the capital has to offer. We've picked out some of our favourite things to do, whether your children are young or a little older.
Treat yourself and your older children to some pampering as the cold weather sets in. Clear your mind, revitalise your body, and rekindle your spirit. Some of the best include, ‘Beauty and Melody Spa at The Montcalm Royal London House’, ‘Sofitel SPA at Sofitel London St James’ and ‘The Spa at The Athenaeum’.
Attend a masterclass to hone your family’s abilities and learn from the best: From an immersive sushi and sake masterclass at Buddha-Bar to interactive cocktail creations at Ramsay's Bread Street Kitchen. Treat yourself or a loved one, whether you want to improve your culinary abilities, learn how to brew elegant drinks, or explore your creative side in a pottery or painting session.
With a sightseeing pass, you can visit several of London's greatest attractions at once and save money at the same time. The Big City Saver attraction passes, The London Pass, and the Go City London Explorer Pass are just a few of the passes that let you accomplish this.
Visit the Warner Bros. Studio Tour: The Making of Harry Potter to learn about the Dark Arts: Visit the classic Harry Potter movie sets behind the scenes but remember... beware of the Death Eaters!
