There's very little that you can do in this fabulous city for FREE, but the science museum lates most definitely puts end to that.

It's a mid-week evening of memory making with friends, making new friends and trying something different.  There are a range of exhibitions and things to do and each month has a theme - so you can always plan ahead to the activities that you want to do.

There's food and drink available a plenty (so you can drink wine whilst joining into the silent disco!) there are always take-aways too, whether it be the gingerbread men you have decorated a pot of little seeds for you to nurture and grow.... it's just non-stop fun, a great jam-packed night out with lots to do and also educational too!

Make sure you book yourself into one of the Museum Lates and enjoy the best possible Summer in London

Always an amazing event! Can highly recommend it and since it got very popular over the recent years try to be early to avoid long queues!


This is a fantastic spot for a date night! There's a different theme every month with a variety of things to do and see related to the theme. There are also fantastic cocktails, beers and surprisingly great food. You get to walk around with your drinks too, so no being contained to an area until you drink up. You can explore the entire museum whilst drinking your favourite alcoholic bevy with no kids around! It starts at 7pm but make sure you get down there at about 6pm as the queue gets very big quite quickly...

Picture I have attached is from September's theme 'Cravings' where I got to walk through a temptation tent full of sweets to see how I would feel after being given yogurt and fruit when I got outside the tent.
