If you happen to find yourself in the capital this summer – be prepared to be spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting some amazing things to do. It is far too overwhelming to list a comprehensive breakdown of all the incredible shows, concerts, exhibitions and summer camps you could take your child to. So instead, we’ve picked some of our favourite ways to get the most out of London Life!
Our top of the picks for cultural days out, goes to The British Museum and their Manga Exhibition.
This visual narrative art form is a multimedia global phenomenon, telling stories with themes from gender to adventure.
For extra flair – why not dress up in full cosplay. Adults pay £19.50 but under 16’s get in absolutely free.
You have until August 26th 2019 to discover the largest display of manga outside Japan.

If it is just too hot to handle outside, Kids get to go free to a whole host of West End Theatre shows, for the whole month of August!
As long as they’re accompanied by a full paying adult, any child under 16 can take their pick from shows including Peter Pan and Wicked.
Adults can also buy up to two extra children’s tickets at half price and there are no booking fees.

Taking guilty pleasure to a whole new level – if ice cream is your first love, time to visit the Magnum Pleasure Store on Regent Street.
You have until 31st August to practise being Willy Wonka for the day and concoct your own creation.
From Wednesday to Sunday – take your seat at the Magnum Chef’s Table. For £15 you can dip your own iconic ice cream while you learn about the craft.
Your little ones can cool off in any blistering summer heat with a visit to the Southbank Centre’s Appearing Rooms Fountain.
This free interactive sculpture by Jeppe Hein returns after popular appearances in previous summers.
Shooting jets of water into the air, the fountain creates rooms that disappear as quickly as they emerge. Soaking is inevitable!!
