There are absolutely loads of things to do in London and they need not cost the earth.

The Science Museum is a great day out for the whole family. It houses the world’s most impresive movie experience at the IMAX 3D Cinema with many 3D films such the magical underwater adventure where you will be transported below the ocean surface to swim alongside some of the planet’s most unique and colourful creatures. If prehistoric is your thing check out the Sea Monsters and the Dinosaurs Alive films. The Space station will blast you off to space to see the building of the International Space Station. There are many more so make sure you get there early.

If you want to see the development of the modern industrial world from 1750 to 2000 the Science Museum has the most breathtaking gallery display in the world. Another gallery devoted to our Solar System shows the story of the space rocket.
