With the school holidays almost upon us, families across the borough will be searching for ways to keep their children entertained. If you’re looking for something new to do this summer, here are a few of the interesting attractions and events that you can visit throughout Bromley.
The Bromley Museum in Orpington has a range of exhibits to help you learn more about our area’s history. Their summer activities include the Rediscovering Treasure exhibition, where you can dig in a sand pit and participate in a range of activities. They are also running drop-in craft sessions throughout the holidays with different weekly themes, including Terrible Lizards and Marvellous Mosaics. For further information on hours and entrance costs, you can visit the Bromley Council website.
The Crofton Roman Villa
The remains of the Crofton Roman Villa in Orpington provides a fantastic local example of Roman life and architecture. A number of family activities will take place at the site throughout the summer.
On Wednesday 22nd and 29th July, a special family quiz will take place as part of the July Festival of Archaeology. Children receive a certificate and badge for participating, and adults will get a free book on the Kent Excavations.
Every Wednesday in August, there will be activities based on Heroic Roman Adventures. Friday sessions include the chance to make a clay pot. Further details on the site and activities can be found on their website.
We’d love to hear about your plans for the summer. Are there any other interesting local attractions that you recommend?
