Bach to Baby, Victoria Park and Highbury
Bach to Baby is a series of concerts for babies and kids aged between 0 and 4 where musicians perform short extracts playing the instruments that the little audience chose. Biscuits and beverages are served to accompany the concerts!
Internationally recognised for Contemporary Art, the White Chapel Gallery offers various inspiring family activities. The latest introduction is the Crib Notes Tour that allows new parents to enjoy a guided tour of the Gallery together with their babies in tow. Other activities include drawing workshops that take place on Saturdays.
Splash in the Science Museum‘s Water Play Area, South Kensington
If children have fun then they will learn. Simple. That is why the Science Museum organised a magical place called The Garden, which is a play and educational area for kids to discover Science whilst having fun and playing with waterways and boats.
Climbers and Creepers is the recently renewed play area at Kew Gardens that engages kids to learn more about plants and their relationships with animals and people. For instance, children can pretend to be insects and climb the plants to understand more about pollination. Make sure you go when the weather is nice to enjoy the Royal Botanic Gardens!

This is the must go-event for children that love chocolate! Chocolate experts deliver a series of workshops and tastings accompanied by readings of Roald Dahl. What better way to learn the art of baking whilst listening to thrilling stories? You can buy the delicious chocolates here
