Favourite places we went to when my boys were young, some we visited lots of times and one or two we didn't get to but they were always on the list. Dinosaur Park was difficult to get to by bus and the London Aquarium I lost the tickets! Some really lovely days out with kids at these places and mostly involving animals and science. The London museums are free entry although pay for extras eg Imax but well worth it. A big packed lunch, some pre planning, local coach trips and plenty of special offer tokens and there you have some of the best days out.
