Need some half term inspiration? We spotted Yoda as well as elephant skulls, a human brain and a penis worm (cue hysterics!) at The Grant Museum – it’s free, near Euston Sq tube and part of UCL so there are zoology students doing really detailed drawings of animals and exhibits as well as members of the public.
And great staff ( those ✨zoology students again – they’d make great Student Nannies for kids who love animals!) helping the children identify skeletons and match animals to migration patterns.
A fantastic recommendation from a lovely lady called Lavinia I met on the way to Birmingham once when our train was cancelled and we spoke in mutual panic on the platform and ended up making our way there together. Thanks Lavinia the kids loved it! #serendipity
