Hold on to your sleighs… it’s our top 5 Christmas days out.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, so here’s some of our favourite 2FOR1 attractions to get you into the festive mood.
Find your favourite reindeer jumper and take the Christmas decorations out of the attic. Whatever it is you need to do to get yourself in the Christmas spirit, there’s plenty of ways to create a memorable Christmas.
These ideas will not disappoint, so here are some great days out for you and your loved ones to enjoy:
- Shrek’s Adventure, Far Far Away (but oh, so close!)
There’s never time to feel bored at Shrek’s Adventure. You’ll have the option to choose from ten mesmerising fairy-tale themed live shows before stepping in Santa’s Grotto in the magical Swamp.
But hurry up! There’s limited availability so buy your tickets now!
Open on selected dates from 25th November – 24th December 2017
Please note, to visit Shrek’s Grotto, there is an additional £5 charge per child. Adults go free.
Nearest Station: Waterloo
- Christmas at the Big Friendly Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre
Chiddlers’ Hour has a Christmas special at the Roald Dahl Museum this year, because nothing screams ‘Christmas’ more, than a themed day out with your children.
And if that day out is taken straight out of Roald Dahl’s fairy-tale pages, you know the fun will be doubled.
On Friday 15th December at 10:30 am, children will have the time of their lives with songs, crafts and games based on classic Roald Dahl characters. Who wouldn’t like to spend a Merry Twitmas with Mr and Mrs Twit, or rub shoulders with the “World’s greatest Chocolate Maker”, Mr Wonka.
The Chiddlers’ Hour Christmas Special costs £3 per child. This doesn’t include Museum entry, but you don’t need this to enjoy the event.
Nearest Station: Great Missenden
- ‘Tis the season to visit ZSL London Zoo!
Reindeers, penguins, tigers and even butterflies (and another 20000 animals) are awaiting your arrival this Christmas.
Spend some time with your family at this extraordinary place in London, where you can learn some amazing biology facts as well as find out about species you’ve never heard of before.
Nearest Station: London Euston
- Enjoy a global day at Kidzania!
With two amazing events about to happen, we’re sure this 2FOR1 offer is one of a kind.
The first one, KidPreneur Festival, is designed to inspire children and teach them the skills needed to set up their own business. There will be talks from the UK’s youngest and brightest minds including teen vlogger, Inspiring Vanessa and the 8-year-old CEO of ICodeRobots, Callum Daniel.
And don’t you forget about the very merry and educational “A Very Global Christmas”, where children will learn how Christmas is celebrated in other countries.
Nearest Station: Shepherd’s Bush
- See the world from above like Santa at the Coca Cola London Eye.
This festive season, celebrate in style by taking in the best views of London. Rotating 135 metres over the Capital’s skyline, enjoy the spectacular city views and Christmas lights in the warmth of the London Eye capsule with a glass of crisp champagne in hand.
Nearest Station: Waterloo, Charing Cross
So what are you waiting for? Warm up with a takeaway cup of hot cocoa and off you go exploring these magical attractions.
