5 fun ideas for half term!
From family dining to F1 racing, we've got plenty of ways to keep the kids happy this half term! Here are our top 5…
The need for speed
This half term, why not book a game at F1 Arcade, the world's first fully immersive Formula 1 racing simulation experience? All ages are welcome until 6pm, but drivers must be aged 7+ to race on the simulators. After 6pm the venue has a strictly 18+ age policy. The game is child-friendly & you'll find four different difficulty levels suitable for all players, from rookie to pro!
Plan a lunch date
Dining out with kids can sometimes be a chore… especially if you have a picky eater in your midst. But, our restaurants have got your back! The Bambini menu at Zizzi has lots of options for fussy kids and nibbles for tiny tums. At Bread Street Kitchen kids eat free all day every day, while at Nando's there's a tasty set menu for children under 10 for just £5.95.

Step back in time…
This February half term, join the Schools and Family Learning team at St Paul's Cathedral on Saturday 11th, Wednesday 15th, Thursday 16th and Saturday 18th February for some special family activities. Find out how St Paul’s Cathedral was designed and built, and discover why there are huge golden pineapples above the doors!
Use your imagination!
Now in its 21st year, the Imagine Children's Festival returns to Southbank Centre on 8-17th February with all manner of theatre, comedy, music, dance and poetry events for 0-11 year olds and their families. Highlights include a band jam with CBeebies saxophonist YolanDa, an appearance by children's author Michael Rosen, a daytime rave, and, much, much more!
Play and learn
Visit The Barbican Centre this half term to enjoy Squish Space – a free creative play space for under 5s. Open on selected days each week, the space was designed by artist duo India Harvey and Lisa Marie Bengtsson and brings people together to learn through interaction, collaboration and play using a variety of materials and tactile objects. Spin, jump, hide, touch and explore!
