Explore the Tate Modern

How much is it? Free.

What age is it suitable for? Any age.

Where is it? Southbank.

London's free museums and galleries are a great way to change up your daily activities and expose your little one to culture early on. The Tate Modern is very family friendly; all entrances are accessible for prams and buggies, and there's a baby care room on Level 0 if you'd like a rest or some privacy while feeding. There are also nappy changing facilities on each floor.

Entry and access to the majority of the collection is free, but there are some paid exhibitions as well. You can definitely pop in for a short jaunt, turn it into an afternoon and explore the Southbank as well, or (my favourite) take a boat across to the Tate Britain a little further down the river to see both galleries in one day.

If you're going with a toddler, there are plenty of family-friendly and interesting exhibits that you can introduce them to as part of your trip. The website even goes over some games that you might want to play or photos you can take while you're there. But if you just want a peaceful day walking around the gallery, there are plenty of facilities and a cafe to make that go smoothly for you.
