This was a must see for us. We spent the best part of a day here.. I still need to go back. There is so much here about the River and the docks. We learned so much. Easily accessible with public trans... more »
Pretty good play area for young kids (1-3 years old, I guess) which is free but needs booking ahead of time. They have a soft play area with a bit of climbing and a slide, a big Lego-style block building zone, some water stuff and a train area. Most of it is Docklands-themed. Would be nice if there were a few more things to do and some activities that changed or rotated every once in a while. They have a cafe next to the kids' area which is nice but has one very slow server.
Fantastic museum! Brilliant for kids and adults alike. Excellent displays, well thought out, and friendly staff. Can easily spend the day here. Mudlarks for the children is a great play area (booking a free time slot online advisable). Definitely don't have your lunch at Rum & Sugar next door, there are loads of great options across the river in Canary Wharf, or at Crossrail Plaza.
