Family day out

Looking for fantastic things to do with kids over the half-term holiday? We've got lots of great family activities at the Royal Observatory, Cutty Sark and the National Maritime Museum. Many of our children's events and galleries are free.

Our new family-friendly, interactive exhibition Above and Beyond opens 27 May at the National Maritime Museum - experience what space flight is really like and glimpse into its future... 

Half-term events

Encounter the wonder of flight, join a mission to Mars or meet Cutty Sark's colourful cockerels

Fire a cannon, climb into Cutty Sark's bunks or build a rocket at the Royal Observatory
