Where did all the Aussie families go? I’ve noticed an Antipodean exodus from London over the past couple of years. Guess the weather finally got to them…
The British Museum has been filling the cultural deficit with Australian Season which runs until October 2011. Over half term they’re even keeping the nippers happy with Australian Adventure activities in the Great Court, from 11am to 4pm. It’s free, just drop in.
The museum runs a mind-boggling mixture of free and paid events and will get its own blog post one of these days. Or perhaps 67 posts – one for each of the rooms open free to the public stuffed full of unique antiquities and wonders.
After the museum the kids will probably need a good run about outside. And you might need a break from saying ‘don’t touch that darling you’ll set off the alarms’. Fear not, Corams Fields is just a short walk away.
