Family Days Out in London – Discover – Children’s Story Centre

Yesterday we went on an adventure – overland and underground – to the amazing Discover Children’s Story Centre in Stratford, East London. It really is a magical place for children and their families to enjoy playing, learning and making up stories together.

There were so many large, and small, details to capture the children’s imaginations, and our special guide from the Lost and Found Department brought the story to life for everyone.
