Fun Things To Do during the Summer Holidays?
Summer holidays are just around the corner and if you’re stuck for ideas we’ve come up with a compilation of fun things to do for both students and teachers. Interesting, educational and fun, enjoy your well earned break and enjoy the best of London in summer.
Panoramic views at Alexandra Palace
Alexandra Palace or the ‘Peoples Palace’ is the perfect place to spend a summer’s day in one of the most iconic locations in London featuring some of the best panoramic views to be had! Enjoy a stroll around the 126 acre park, hop on a Segway or skate around the ice rink – there’s no shortage of activities for children and adults alike! Their summer festival takes place of July 25th, it is a free event and features a exciting array of things to see, do, eat and play!
Theatre As You Like It
Summer in London can sometimes feel like an enigma – goregeous one day and gone the next. Make the most of warmer weather (while we’ve got it) and enjoy the best of London theatre under the summer sky. Shakespeare’s Globe is one of the world’s most notorious theatres known for being home to where many of Shakespeare’s plays were first performed. Visiting this cultural landmark is a must and it is never more magical than in the summer air. Showing one of Shakespeare’s most loved comedies, As You Like It tells a tale of young love, betrayal, cross-dressing and forgiveness. A lesson to be learnt and a laugh to be had for all.
Showing until September 5th.
The Beach … in Brent Cross!
What better way to celebrate summer than with a day out to London’s biggest beach experience, right here at Brent Cross. Gone are the days when Londoners have to travel out of the city to the seaside; the beach has arrived in London and it is here all summer.
Children, young and young-at-heart, will be entertained by Punch and Judy, customary seaside games, carousel’s and tea-cup rides, whilst the more adventurous can try the 60ft roller coaster, shoot down one of the last remaining helter skelter slides in the UK or ride a host of fairground favourites.
Visitors can enjoy an ice-cold tipple or soft drink at the tiki-style Pimms bar, or indulge in traditional seaside cuisine with fish and chips as they recline in larger-than-life deckchairs.
Open from 12 noon till 10pm daily.
Entrance costs £3 and tokens are available to purchase for rides. Parking is FREE.
