Thing To Do In London On a Budget And Win An Annual Kids Pass


Half term is looming and we are always looking for things to do in the half term, Being on a budget and planning days out can quite stressful. We want to best for our kids so I am here to help with some suggestions for cheap days out in London.

The Cinema

We use the Vue Cinema in Islington, it is one of the friendliest ones that we have been to and it is set in Islington High Street, a small walk from Angel tube station. It is surrounded by cafes and restaurants so you can eat out too if you want. There is also a supermarket nearby to buy snacks at a cheaper price than the cinema. The best thing about this cinema is that the tickets are only £5.99 and that is an amazing price for a cinema ticket in London. An alternative one that has cheap cinema tickets is Wood Green if you want to go to the north of London. Again tickets are £5.99.


Street Art

This is a free activity and its great for the kids to get creative. Although street art is all over the city, the best place to go to is Shoreditch. You can walk for hours and hours finding different pieces of art. I Love doing this with Matilda, I give her a camera and she takes her own photos and we look at them later. Everybody looks at art differently and it is good to see what she thinks is good photography and what catches her eye, that I might not have seen. I recommend this to everyone.

Kids Pass

There is a special offer at the moment where you can get a Kids Pass for £. It will last you a month and you can get huge discounts off family breaks away, cinema tickets and kids eat free in restaurants. This is a great way to save some money but still be able to afford a day out and enjoy it. For example, kids eat free at Bella Italia and there is one located close to Vue Islington so you could save a lot of money on a treat. The Kids Pass App gives you instant access to 1,000’s of offers, including up to 40% off cinemas nationwide (7 days a week, adult and child), kids eat free at 1000’s of restaurants, up to 65% off family days out, up to 10% off UK family breaks and up to 50% off Eurocamp holidays. You can try Kids Pass yourself for 30 days by starting a trial for £1. We have an annual Kids Pass to give away at the end of the blog post worth £75

Museums

There are so many free museums in London and you could spend a whole day just going around a few of them. One of my favourites, since I was a kid, is the Imperial War Museum. I haven't taken Matilda yet because she has always been a bit young to appreciate it but I think over the next year she will be old enough. There is always the Science Museum and the Natural History Museum. Both are next to each other and you can spend a whole day in these. Pack lunch and pop it in your bag, then just spend the whole day browsing the museums.

Walk along the Thames

I have done this many times before and you get to see parts of London that you don't normally see. You can walk for miles and see the buskers on the riverside, cross one of the many bridges and lots of different buildings to see. It's not for everyone and if you start a walk, it can be miles from a bus stop or tube station if you decide that you have had enough. In the summer you can even go down and play in the water - although I wouldn't


Take a Bus

We prefer to do this than get on the underground because you see more of London, It's more exciting for the kids and if you see something that you want to do then you just get off at the next stop. It is a slower way of getting around but London gets so busy, that sometimes its a good idea to stop and take it slower. it's £1.50 to travel on the bus in London and your kids under 11 travel free. You can swap busses as many times as you like in an hour and not have to pay any more than that initial £1.50.

Parks

They are everywhere in London, Our favourite has to be Hyde Park. There is so much green space in the centre of the city and you can walk for miles and miles, and then come out at a different part of London. There is a lake in Hyde Park that you can go boating on and a statue of Peter Pan. You could really spend hours there and not spend a penny.

So who wants to win a Kids Pass? Just think how much money you could save over the next year. This competition runs until February 25th 2019 so you will miss out on it for half term but please take the £1 offer up and use that for the next month so get saving money.
