GREAT FIRE OF LONDON FAMILY WALK
Museum of London
Was the baker of Pudding Lane to blame? What did Samuel Pepys bury in his garden? Find out on a 45 minute interactive family walk exploring how the Great Fire started, spread, and was finally stopped.
WATER FROM SOURCE TO TAP
Institution of Civil Engineers
Our kids are very environmentally savvy and this exhibition will give them more information on fighting fatbergs and conserving water supplies. Real-life engineers, past and present, are reimagined as cartoon superhero alter-egos, making this exhibition fun for the kids and the whole family.
