The British Library

Let kids' imaginations run wild at the British Library. With over a million books at their fingertips and lots of family friendly activities to choose from, a trip to the museum will delight literature-loving parents and children alike. 

Families are encouraged to visit the library throughout the year to experience all that the library has to offer – from book-tastic children's trials of discovery, to creative activities inspired by the library's astonishing collection and current exhibitions.

With interactive workshops and discovery days throughout the year, the British Library is the perfect place for your family to learn together in a fun and relaxed environment. And don't worry – the library promises to never ask you to keep the noise down!
