February Half Term Activities in London

There’s nothing like an adventure by train for kids to enjoy when they’re off school for the holidays. But it’s even better when there’s something great to look forward to at the end of it. So if you’re looking for affordable ways to keep the kids entertained and out of the house over this half term, then look no further. Here’s our guide to the top Half Term Activities in London, all easily accessible by train.

Kids travel for just £2 (on weekdays and weekends) and adults get 25% off too. Plus you also get a Zones 1-6 travelcard included for hopping on and off all TfL stations.

Imagine Childrens Festival

Imagine Children’s Festival

Museumchildhoo

V&A Museum of Childhood – Bethnal Green

The world’s largest institute of its kind, this kingdom of child culture and memorabilia boasts a collection of toys, games, costumes and more spanning back to the 1800s. The newly refurbished museum has lots of hands-on stuff for the kids to enjoy too, including ‘Party like a Pirate’ performances and workshops from the 20th – 28th of October, making it a goldmine for that Half Term day out activity.

When: Daily, from 10am – 5:45pm

How much? FREE

How to get there: Take the c2c to Stratford then take the Central Line to Bethnal Green.

Explore the Universe – Royal Observatory Greenwich

Take a journey through space and time when you visit the world famous Royal Observatory. There’s so much to immerse yourself in; from awe inspiring Planetarium shows by expert astronomers, stand atop the Meridian Line where the east meets the west and you can also lay your hands on a 4.5 billion year old meteorite. There’s also a lot more to see and experience, making the full day trip out well worth it.

When? Daily, from 10am – 5pm

How much? Adult tickets £15.00 and child tickets £6.50.

How to get there: Take the c2c train to West Ham, Jubilee Line to Canary Wharf, DLR to Greenwich.

Arcelor

Ride the Slide at ArcelorMittal Orbit – Queen Elizabeth Park

Take in the breathtaking views from atop the London Orbit, 80m above the ground, before zooming down on the world’s tallest and longest tunnel slide. There are also other things to enjoy here like descending down the 455 specially designed soundscape stairs to hear London echo around you. You can also abseil down the entire Orbit – if you’re brave enough!

When? Monday to Friday 11am – 5pm. Weekends and School Holidays 10am – 6pm, last entry at 5:30pm.

How much? Adult ticket from £16.50, child ticket from £10.50. There is also a Family of 4 ticket (2 adults and 2 children, aged between 8-16), for £52.00.
