Looking for advice on what to do? We're fairly local (in Kent) but could really do with some suggestions for stuff to do with boys. The little one is a bit fidgety...

The Hop Farm? It's free entry now, you just have to pay for some of the rides. We're going on Saturday! smile

Thanks Sleepingbunnies, but we're looking for stuff in London itself. That's great news about the Hop Farm. I remember it being so expensive before...

What do they like to do? Which part of London? My children really liked going on the cable car over the Thames then catching the DLR (driverless trains!!!), then you could go to Greenwich Park and mooch round Greenwich Market. Or, Kew Gardens is huge and has loads of stuff to do and see for children (if you travel by train, get a 2-4-1 deal here as it is quite pricy). In central London, there is the Princess Diana playground which does get rammed but is worth the wait or, also in Hyde Park, the Princess Diana fountain which my children love splashing round in, it keeps them weirdly enthralled for hours. Science and Natural History museums are also close by should you fancy those.
