Are you planning a day out in London with your kids this autumn? There are loads of things for families to do in the capital and many of them free.

There are more than 80 sculptures on display ranging from replicas of well-known works of art, such as the Mona Lisa, to more conceptual pieces, such as a torso splitting in two. There’s also an interactive area where you can have a go at building LEGO sculptures yourself. The Art of the Bricknofollow exhibition runs until January 4th, 2015 at the Old Truman Brewery, a five minute walk from Shoreditch High Street underground station.
