A summer education

The summer holidays are just around the corner and, with six weeks out of the classroom, the kids are going to need other ways to feed their budding minds. We’ve negotiated some family activities that are fun and educational to help stop the summer brain drain.

Treat the kids to a spine-chilling day out at The London Bridge Experience & Tombs with this half-price deal (now £11.50 per person). Discover the capital’s haunting 200-year history, including the Great Great Fire of London, Queen Boudicca's rise against the Romans and the Viking attack on the bridge under King Olaf. Characters of old London will guide you through the experience, ending at the gruesome London Tombs.


Why not keep your brains and bodies active with this guided walk along Hadrian’s Wall for just £10 from Wild Dog Outdoors? With your own Roman soldier as a guide, the experience will begin with a fun and informative talk about the wall’s rich history before you set off on a 2-mile walk along the National Trail.

We’ve also got some great shows to keep you entertained during those inevitable rainy days. Kids can explore the fascinating world of science at "Brainiac Live!" Top-price tickets at the Palace Theatre in London from 18 July-17 August now start at £9.50. Expect exploding phones, fire, bombs, daring stunts and, of course, laughs aplenty. As The Guardian puts it, "it's all good, educational fun".
