DITL | Kensington Gardens | Science Museum | London |

Living in West London we are so lucky to have such fantastic landmarks on our doorstep not to mention the abundance of free museums.

We decided to plan a family outing to the Science museum in South Kensington and with Kensington Gardens just around the corner we added in a trip to the Diana memorial playground.

This playground is great for children of all ages with a giant ship surrounded by sand as the centerpiece, children are free to run wild with the safety of knowing that adults have to be accompanied by a child to enter. Once we had prized Evelyn away we took a stroll down to the lake to marvel at the swans swimming around happily, then on to the science museum.

If you havenโ€™t taken your toddler to the science museum then I suggest you do, they have an interactive area called The Garden located in the basement especially designed for children, with water play, giant stacking blocks and much much more. Evelyn had the best time and even enjoyed looking at the spaceships and car exhibits that maybe designed for older children.

We all had such a great day and it was all totally free, you cant ask for better than that.
