Our summer holiday London highlights
Mr Men and Little Miss Mini Museum
The colourful children's characters celebrate their 45th birthday this year, and to mark the occasion, hundreds of Mr Men and Little Miss pieces of memorabilia will be on display at the exhibition designed at a child's scale. Visitors can add their own stamp by uploading an image of their own memorabilia, and the first 45 to do so will receive a limited edition print signed by Adam Hargreaves.
Come face to face with a life-size dinosaurs as they're resurrected for six weeks only at Whipsnade Zoo. Families can meet the dino keepers and learn more about the t-rexs, and brachiosaurus that roamed the planet 65 million years ago. There will also be plenty of fun dino-themed activities for little ones to get stuck into.
