Here are a couple of ideas to keep the kids busy during half term in London.

Iíd recommend London Aquarium, at this time of year make you can make the most of Halloween themes. If thatís not tempting enough, if you book online its half price during half term!

Battersea Park Children's Zoo is great and they have a Fireworks display Saturday 1st November, the kids will be love the bonfire and firework display. Thereís also Hampton Court Palace, theyíll have hours of fun in the world famous Maze (kids are free during half term).

Other places include London Transport Museum and HMS Belfast. The museum is full of inter-active things to do; they can get behind the driver's seat of a tube train simulator. HMS Belfast has nine decks to explore, massive boiler and engine rooms, and anti-aircraft guns to operate. Both are greats days out if itís a wet day, which is always useful this time of year!

Whatever you decide, the kids wonít be disappointed! If you donít want to spend any money then walk along the South Bank and let them take in all the views. Many of Londonís famous tourist attractions are within walking distance or a short ride on public transport.

Smile Ideas for Half term for a family or with Friends !

I've found that very good deal on Living social for the 2nd of Nov. I'm going with my friends but I found out that you could also take your family on a different boat on the same day.

It's a 3h cruise with Laser show and fireworks and music ! Sounds fun!
