If you have yet to visit the Discover Children’s Story Centre, be prepared to be amazed. Their basement hosts the most incredible immersive exhibitions that are like stepping into a page inside your little one’s favourite stories. This exhibition will no doubt enthrall young visitors with something for everyone aged 0-8 years.
Alongside their immersive exhibitions, the Discover Children’s Story Centre regularly has storytelling and draw along sessions with authors and illustrators for school aged children during the school holidays. Their early year’s storytelling sessions are sensory delights for babies and under 5s. Afterward, you can run through their Story Worlds permanent exhibition or visit their incredible playground. Definitely one of the best places to visit with your family and a must on every little Londoner’s list of things to do before they start school.
