Just a paradise for the family. The dinosaurs were wonderful, including the huge stegosaurus which had apparently come back to life. It was dancing and roaring to the delight of everyone. We only saw a corner of this huge museum, but it is such a...More

I love walking around the natural history museum. It is always busy but not so much that you can’t enjoy yourself. There’s always a quiet stop somewhere and there’s so much to look at.

This is another one of those special London gems - which makes it necessary to visit more than once. There is simply so much to see. Absolute favourite with the kids!

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

We were there for 2 hours and didn’t do it all, but that was our choice we didn’t a long time in the Blue Zone as my nephew loves dinosaurs.

If you are tired and can't go outside, there are options to try at the cafe. However, better options available outside the museum.
