Time Out’s Eye Openers: Kids

Sensory sessions and musical tales that’ll make them wonder what they ever saw in cartoons

By Time Out editors

When you’re only a couple of feet tall, sprawling skyline vistas of London go from impressive to downright breathtaking, so it’s no surprise that littl’uns love the London Eye. Throw some fun activities into the mix, then, and you’ve got an experience that’ll have pint-sized people giggling with glee.

Terms and conditions apply.

Baby Music

This afternoon of musical fun with Mini Mozart will have babes who like to boogie bopping to be beat. Expect classic nursery rhymes with a London influence, and plenty of props to keep wandering minds engaged.

Baby Sensory

Were they kicking to the beat from inside the womb? If so they’ll be into these musical, multi-sensory sessions that’ll have even the smallest babies squirming and smiling. Songs and rhyme will help to encourage the development of speech, while ideas for innovative physical play activities can easily be repeated at home.


Children’s Storytime (0–3 year-olds)

Even the tiniest of tots will find themselves absorbed by the interactive tales laid on by Sandal Sticks Theatre and London Dreamtime. And if their attention wanders, the panoramic views of London make for a pretty good backup.

Paddington Storytime (4-7 year-olds)

Stories about Paddington, the beloved bear from darkest Peru, will have kids transfixed in any setting, but they’ll take on a new dimension in these special sessions, which celebrate 60 years of the world’s favourite bear. As well as excerpts from ‘A Bear Called Paddington’ and the chance to try on Paddington’s famous red hat, every child will get their own Paddington Bear book to take home (and a sudden craving for marmalade sandwiches).
