50+ Things to Do Over the Summer Holidays

The school summer holiday season has begun!

Fear not: we’ve created a bumper guide of over 50 activities and things to do with the kids in London in July and August, aka the six (or more if your children are in private school) weeks holiday.

Read, save, bookmark, print – together, we can get through this trying time without hearing the dreaded 'I'm bored!'

If you’re lucky enough to be jetting off on holiday, read our guide to surviving a long haul flight when you’re with children.

If you’re looking for a mini-getaway, we heartily recommend a short trip to Home Farm Glamping. Only 10 minutes outside of London, it’s camping with all the home comforts. Read our review here.

There's always plenty going on in the capital's museums and galleries, check out our faves - sorted by neighbourhood - here.

We produce a what's on guide for every school holiday. If you'd like to know when our next guide is live, please leave your info below.
