Cultural weekends with kids

Take your young culture-vultures away for a weekend inspired by their favourite movies and children’s stories

40 London by the book

London is, well, capital when it comes to inspiring classic children’s literature.

Swing by Kensington Garden's statue ofPeter Pan, then make your way to the regal interiors of the Savoy Hotel. Their whimsical Tiger Who Came to Tea-themed afternoon spread features bespoke china piled high with striped scones, marzipan tigers and blue and pink Battenberg cake (£40pp;fairmont.comhttp://fairmont.com;).
