Summer 2019 Family Activities

Travel to the seaside without leaving London with a range of beach-themed family-friendly activities.

The rise of the railway in the 1800s brought the seaside in reach to the masses, marking the beginnings of the Great British Summer. From Punch and Judy hand puppet workshops and postcard making sessions to storytelling and a book signing.

Join us in a fun filled family programme celebrating this fabulous tradition, then jump aboard our own special train – Mail Rail! Where will your journey take you?!
