The sleepovers in London are hard to resist for anyone who loves everything beyond the ordinary. Sure, you can go pub-crawling, but sleepovers in museums have an unmatched appeal. This exciting experience of spending a night away from the comfort of your own room and bed is gradually becoming a hit among kids and adults alike. By Shubhanjana Das
A trip to London doesn’t always have to be about pub crawls, especially when you can relive childhood nostalgia. Explore the Science Museum in South Kensington, London for a night full of science and knowledge, which includes fun workshops, science shows and a show in the museum’s IMAX Theatre. Take away a screen-printed t-shirt as a souvenir from this out-of-the-box experience in London.
2. Dino Snores Sleepovers
This sleepover at the Natural History Museum will awaken the Ross in you! Plan a surprise for your little one at the Natural History Museum at South Kensington for the Dino Snores Sleepover for kids. Sleep next to a stegosaurus, whisper to a dino and learn more about this extinct species. The experience comes with torch-lit trails, dino hunts and t-shirt designing at the museum. The museum designs the activities in a way that includes a visit to the galleries, periodic exhibitions, a three-course dinner accompanied with live music performances, a science show, a stand-up comedy show, drink tasting session and an all-night monster movie marathon. With so much to do, can there ever be a dull moment here?
We have all been to zoos but zoo sleepovers aren’t something many of us can claim to have experienced. The ZSL London Zoo situated in Outer Circle, London offers an exclusive sneak-peek into the life of the creatures after the visiting hours. Meant for those who prefer a one-on-one with these wonderful animals rather than just walking past them, the experience comes with a two-course dinner and a sumptuous spread of English breakfast. We are certain that no animal lover would want to miss the opportunity of observing the Asiatic Lions, Spider Monkeys and Okapis up close at the zoo.
