Keep the kids active during the Summer holidays at Better. In partnership with the Royal Borough of Greenwich we have a wide range of activities available in our Better leisure centres, children’s centres, libraries and performing arts centres, across Greenwich. It’s the perfect place for children to try something new, make new friends, and have a lot of fun. 

Our highly qualified staff will keep the kids entertained with a variety of sports, arts and leisure activities, while giving you peace of mind that they’re in safe hands.
