In The Know – Is it a Bird or Is it a Plane?
As the holidays draw to a close, it is young people’s last chance to enjoy what the summer holidays has to offer in London. This week we bring you three light-hearted, fun-filled activities to put everyone in a good mood before school starts.
Feel what it’s like to fly
Have you ever wanted to know what it feels like to pilot a jet? Well, The Science Museum is offering you a chance to experience it with Fly 3600, their hands-on flight simulator. Suitable for young people aged 9 and above, and not shorter than 120cm, this is an opportunity not to miss! Tickets cost £12 for a capsule which fits two people. To find out more, come in for a landing here.
Experience The Luna Cinema
The UK’s No.1 outdoor cinema is something everyone should experience before the summer ends. Great fun for the whole family, they have a fantastic lineup of movies both new and old. The most popular screening this summer being The Greatest Showman, sing along to the movie’s incredible songs and have a great night out.

Superhero or Villain?
For young people who love comic books, The O2 is celebrating the awesome world of DC Comics with an exhibition titled Dawn of the Super Heroes. Fans will be able to walk through the exhibition, which runs in chronological order, with each room offering a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the mythical DC Universe. The exhibition runs until the 9th of September. Find out more about tickets here.
