My older two are 12 and 10.5 (also have a 6 year old). I'm struggling to find places to go that they'll all enjoy.

Any ideas around London/Herts/Bucks?

We are also NT members.

This isn't really a day out but I've just been to see groove on down the road on the southbank and it was amazing. Any child or adult would love it. Totally brilliant. You could have an amble around southbank eat them see that.
