With the summer holidays looming, it can be difficult to find activities and things to do. The following suggestions are perfect for children and young people who find themselves bored in Harrow over the holidays.
The new indoor golf course has three different golf courses, games such as the shufl board, and a diner. Prices start from £4.80 for juniors and £5.80 for adults. This activity is perfect for those who want a quick game of golf or play the game indoors instead of outdoors.
Harrow Skatepark was one of the first to open back in 1978 and is perfect for both beginner and experienced skaters. It includes an old-school pool, a 5ft wooden mini ramp and much more.
The bouldering centre in Harrow is London’s largest. They offer introductory sessions for children and sessions for older children who want a greater challenge. This is perfect for those who want a more adventurous activity.
The latest social media trend is available in Harrow. Bubble tea is a Taiwanese drink made of milk, fruit, juice and tapioca pearls. The drink is perfect for a hot, summer day and can be found at ‘Mooboo Bubble Tea’ in St George’s Shopping Centre.
