Kensington Mums was invited for a family day out at the Science Museum to experience a 3D movie at the IMAX Cinema, The cinema itself was one the biggest I have ever seen and their chairs were very comfy. Little ones enjoyed wearing their 3D glasses and pretending to swim along with some of the planet’s most colourful creatures while watching Deep Sea 3D. The Garden as well as the LaunchPad is a great way for older ones to explore and learn about Science.

Kensington Mums was invited for another family day out at Royal Botanic Garden, Kew Chocolate Quest. This was a lot of fun, we travelled through time to discover the past and future of the nation’s favourite treat. Loads to discover and do with little ones at Kew including their Climbers and Creepers where little ones – can explore and wiggle through tunnels and slide down giant pitcher plant. If you are planning a visit this Spring, dont forget to see the Olympic rings spectacular unveiled

Kensington Mums was invited for the Easter Egg Hunt at Kensington Palace. We also took part in the Easter Bonnet making competition and ate loads of chocolates! Kensington Palace which is also part of the Historic Royal Palaces is a great gem in the heart of Kensington. Ticked all boxes, a great family day out!
