Things to do in London in March with kids
Looking for things to do in London with the kids this March? You don’t need to lift a finger – we’ve rounded up the best the city has to offer. The only thing we can’t do? Tantrum-proof your weekend.
This immersive exhibition may even tempt teens: after all, it mostly involves staring at yourself from different angles and mirrored walls (see the centrepiece of Kaleidoscope, Laura Buckley’s walk-in multimedia installation, Fata Morgana, 2012).

Mother's Day is on 11 March this year and for anyone with kids, we think this is the most important date in the diary: celebrating the superwomen who walk among us. Whether it'll be a day of pampering, a meal out, or, more realistically if you have young kids, sticking glue to bits of paper everywhere, it's just about enjoying time with one of your favourite people on the planet. Bonus points if mum can make it through the day without having to wash a dish...Read more ...
