Half term is fast approaching and if you don’t have any plans yet, we have some great London hotel deals for you plus some great ideas for things to do with the kids this February.
Affordable London hotel deals at New Providence Wharf
Head down to New Providence Wharf at the weekends and you can find rates from as little as £99. It’s fantastic as a base for the O2 directly opposite the hotel but that’s not all there is to do in the area. Nearby in Greenwich, the National Maritime Museum and the Royal Observatory are hosting ‘We are Astromers’ an awe-inspiring look at the planets or go and stand on the Meridian Line – the Prime Meridian of the World – longtitude 0º. Visit http://www.nmm.ac.uk/ for more information about visiting.
Alternatively, pack off the kids and get some me-time at East River Spa – with amazing views of the Thames, you’ll feel truly relaxed in no time at their health and beauty spa.
Book ten days in advance and receive 10% off your hotel room this February in Manchester. Check in and head down to the Manchester Art Gallery which has been shortlisted for the Guardian Family Friendly Museum of the Year award.
Pick up a free family backpack and enjoy the interactive gallery on the first floor, complete with dressing up games and chariot races for your little ones to take part in. For more information go to http://www.manchestergalleries.org/families/visiting-with-your-family/.
Just a five minute walk from the Radisson Edwardian Vanderbilt hotel in South Kensington, the Science Museum is home to a huge IMAX 3D cinema, showing a range of movies that educate as well as excite like Deep Sea 3D – a look at some amazing sealife in magical 3D.
