Dedicated to the V&A’s collection of toys, from dollhouses and puppet theatres to Lego and action figures, this museum also offers plenty to admire from an adult perspective, from its mosaic floor to art exhibitions. Look for the sensory area, with a sandpit, dressing-up box, and interactive displays like a Victorian kitchen. Make sure that you find the leather rocking horses and take a ride. They have two sizes, with crash-mats all around.
Great for a children and adults and absolutely free. Space for buggy storage. Lovely cafe and shop too. Free lego and sand activities on the top floor.
Great museum with all amenities for parents with children. There's a great cafe inside and often lots of interactive options. Only a short 10 minute walk or bus ride and can keep small ones entertained for a long time on a rainy day.
Museum about childhood toys and games - kids enjoy it as its set up so that they can charge around and there are indoor sandpits etc, adults love it for nostalgia factor. It's got a decent cafe too. Free (I think maybe you pay to go into the temporary exhibitions).
Great place for kids but the architecture of the building makes it worth it for everyone.
“Beautiful big park with lakes, lovely cafes and a beautiful walk to Victoria Park Village.”
“Old school cocktail bar, these cocktails are tasty in a quirky environment.”
“This is a great Sunday market but warning it does get busy as it is very popular amongst visitors and locals. Its great to see the traders working and selling their wares and getting in amongst the hustle and bustle. You can also pick up some great deals on house plants and flowers. If you want to avoid the crowds I would recommend getting there early. Around lunchtime the crowds pick up. Also very close to Shoreditch so can easily pop down to Brick Lane after to look around the market there. ”
“Pavillion Cafe is located in Victoria Park It is a short walk from here along the canal and perfect for weekend brunch”
