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. Begin by visiting the Paddington Bear statue at his namesake station, picking up a replica of him ( before walking round to Hyde Park for a picnic of marmalade sandwiches. 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.com;). Devote your second day to the book behemoth that is Harry Potter. Begin at Platform 9% at King's Cross, but instead of the Hogwarts Express, take the Northern Line to Camden Town. It's a pleasant stroll to London Zoo (zsl.org;) - home to the Reptile House where, in the film version, Harry discovers his ability to talk to snakes.
