"There's nothing quite like bringing learning to life for kids. Why not book to see the BRILLIANT new film the 'Darkest Hour' showing city wide then jump on the tube and visit the hugely atmospheric Churchill War Rooms enabling your little ones to actually walk in Chruchill's real footsteps. Visit the room where Churchill delivered his most iconic speeches, head to the Map Room and even see Churchill's bedroom. Kids will love the Winston inspired dress-up box plus there's a super Kids Audio

I took my two girls, Jessie 12 and Amelie 14, to see the film first. They were both very engaged and spilled out of the cinema with heaps and heaps of questions about the blitz, the little ships of Dunkirk and the war in general. My eldest was SO excited when she spotted Whistlejacket, the stunning stallion painted by Stubbs, (now hanging in the National Gallery) on the wall behind King George VI in Buck Palace when he was asking Churchill to form a government. We had visited the Gallery together over the Christmas hols and had both hugely admired the painting.   

The Darkest Hour is now showing city wide. We recommend the Electric Cinema in Notting Hill. Cosy up in their red velvet armchairs complete with cashmere blankets. We ordered the cheeseburgers, nachos and choc brownie - yum! Under 14's seats for £10, adults £14. 

A really lovely and hugely educational day out".
