A few half-term in London highlights
Above and Beyond
Experience the marvellous world of flight and aerospace innovation at 'Above and Beyond', an immersive exhibition offering a look at the past and future of the science behind flight. Expect interactive experiences using flight simulation, augmented reality and virtual reality.
Land of the Lions
Construction of this vast new exhibit began back in 2014. Two years on, the zoo is ready to rehome its pride of endangered Asiatic lions in this enclosure which is styled on the ruins of an amphitheatre-like lion temple. Visitors can get up close to the beautiful big cats thanks to newly installed 'windowless-views' created using fine wires and explore the park filled with rickshaws.
Dinosaurs: Monster Families
Expect to see life-size models, interactive exhibits and authentic specimens at this family-friendly exhibition exploring dinosaurs and prehistoric approaches to parenting. Visitors can find out how dinosaurs cared for their eggs, nest and babies as well as marvelling at a near-complete skeleton of a dinosaur embryo and an incredible collection of fossils.
