The Shard

The number one place to go for photographs of the city, the kids will love The Shard just as much as you parents.

Using the telescopes you can zoom in on whichever location you want – it’s a great addition to any London break.

The Making of Harry Potter

Let’s face it, we love a bit of witchcraft and wizardry as much as the kids do so where better than the Warner Bros. Studio to satisfy the full family’s excitement? This Half Term why not explore some of the film’s most loved original props and costumes, including the set of the Great Hall and the original Sorting Hat. For all Harry Potter fans, young and old, half term at the Harry Potter Studios is a guaranteed winner.
