If you’re glamping in half term week, staying near London means you’ll be close to lots of exciting activities. Explore the city’s streets and national landmarks with treasure trails and hunts: St Katherine’s Treasure Trail and the Huntfun series of trails are based around maps that will take you on journeys through Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden and other famous areas as you’ve never seen them before.
Alternatively, you can see the capital from a slightly different perspective at Go Ape in Battersea Park. This high-ropes course lets kids of all ages and abilities swing from the tree tops and come home puffing and happy. If you’d prefer to keep your feet firmly on the ground, ZSL London Zoo has year-round activities and captivating exhibitions to lure animal-lovers. Young teens can become zoo keepers for a day, and once you watch a hippo chill out in a hot tub, you’ll have family memories forever.
Of course, no trip to London is complete without a visit to one of its museums, and the National Gallery is particularly kid-friendly, with drawing workshops, special tours and half term classes on offer. Perfect for a day when the weather is less kind!
