So this half term coming up if you don't have any holidays planned, then why not hop on the train and see some sites up in London.
There are some real cost effective ways to have a good day out, instead of being indoors, due to bad weather. It should never stop you, just wrap up warm and once inside I can assure you, you will be in the warm.
I haven't checked the forecast for next week, but why not check out the museums too.
The London Transport Museum is brilliant. I paid £16.00 for an Annual Pass.
It can be confusing to find at first, as it says it is on Wellington Street, but there are two entrances.
You actually want to walk up Wellington Street, up to Covent Garden turn left all the way around and you will see the London Transport Museum shop, and that's where it is. Then you have The Natural History Museum, The Science Museum and the Victoria Albert Museum. I got to say the Science museum was my favourite, it has plenty to do for young children and adults.
It has a play area for children in the basement, where they can play with water, build with giant LEGO, there is a climbing frame and loads of activities to do.
The picture above is of the inside The Natural History Museum as you come into the museum, from the side entrance on Exhibition Road. It is one of the first museums you come to, on Cromwell Road and then behind that if you continue on down towards Exhibition Road, from Cromwell road is the Science Museum.
Next door over the road is the Victoria and Albert Museum, great if you want to see all the different clothes from the many generations. It is great for those who love fashion.
So if you don't want to splurge too madly but you want to take your children somewhere different, then why not pick one of these museum.
The London Transport Museum costs, Kids go free:

I have never loved London more than I do now. It has become my sanctuary, I was getting fed up of spending days in doors all the time, and one of my new life changes this year (check out my blog site https://everybodycanbuildacastle.wordpress.com) was to get out of the house and spend days out.
I want to take advantage of the amazing places I have around me.
This is one of the places I love to go to. Battersea Park. A great place to run, workout outdoors, and take your family.
They have a lovely little children's zoo with a playground inside and a Go Ape Adventure park. (Read on for further details below).
Above is an example of the little characters you can see within the zoo.
The Go Ape adventure park is where you can swing and walk from the trees. Great thing to do at half term as a family. They have different ones for different ages. There is no real age restriction, but more a height restriction. Please check out the link below for further details:
Here is an image of the Go Ape Treetop Adventure.
There are many different playgrounds within the park, if you wanted to take the children out for some exercise for free.
See image below of an example.
They have different ones for toddlers to older children. They do have places to have a cup tea and coffee too.
Why not walk on up from there or hop on a bus, I love walking around this park and looking out towards the River Thames. Battersea Park does have it's own station, and you can easily get a train to their too, going towards London Victoria.
Please see National Rail Enquiries for details.
Alternatively there are many buses that go there. Please check out the TFL (The Transport for London) website for further information. If you travel via Wimbledon, there is a bus 156 that goes all the way there and literally drops you outside Battersea Park station.
Other buses to Battersea Park: 137, 44, 452
The one place I always check out events happening and places to go, is the website
I will be posting more places to go in my city of London.
