Gingerbread City at the Museum of Architecture

10:30am
£9.00 (advance sales)£9.00 (on the door)

Prepare to be a weird combination of inspired, envious and hungry at this year’s Gingerbread city, held by the Museum of Architecture and filled with incr-edible displays (sorrynotsorry). Using a city plan created by a local urban design company, they’ve had entries from architects far and wide (with spots still open if you’re keen) to create a new and unparalleled city of the future. This year’s theme is “transport”, and the enties promise to be more ambitious than ever.

Entry tickets cost £9.00 for adults and £7.00 for under 12s. Kids under three go free. Tickets can be bought on the door or booked online. Buying the tickets online means divulging a fair amount of your personal information. So unless you’re going for a workshop there’s no real reason not to just turn up and save yourself the hassle.

Workshops at the Gingerbread City

Somerset House Gingerbread
The gingerbread workshops are your opportunity to get involved in the gingerbread city yourself, and include everything you’ll need to create your masterpiece. Family tickets cost £42.00. Confusingly, they only include one adult and one child, so if you’ve more children (or more parents), you’ll need to shell out for extra tickets.

Workshops run daily (excluding Christmas and Boxing Day). Each Session lasts an hour and a half, starting from 10:30 am, 1 pm and 3:30 pm. There’s also an adults-only evening session which starts at 6 pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

While you’re there

If you’re making the trip to Somerset house, it’s well worth checking out their much loved ice rink. Too rich for your tastes? Read our guide to cheap and free things to do in nearby Waterloo.
