Discover Children's Story Centre

A place where children and their families can play, imagine and make up stories


What Discover Children's Story Centre says

Discover is the UK’s first Story Centre for children aged 0-11 and their families. As a not for profit organisation, our aim is to support a love of language, literature and stories. At the heart of the centre, our purpose-built Story World and Story Garden are creative play spaces designed to inspire children’s curiosity and imagination. We want to help improve reading, writing, speaking and listening skills for children in fun and imaginative ways. Hootah, our resident baby space alien, is always on the look-out encouraging children to create their own stories to send back to his planet Squiggly Diggly. Changing annually, our interactive exhibitions immerse families in the worlds of their favourite authors and illustrators, from Michael Rosen to Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler to Judith Kerr. Our Story Builders lead timed exhibition sessions and 0-3’s Storytelling, and pop up in the Story Worlds and Story Garden to tell more tales. Throughout the year we invite much-loved and up-and-coming authors, illustrators and other artists to run exciting events. We also work in schools, libraries community spaces and at festivals. Last year over 151,000 children and adults engaged with Discover. We have been awarded the Visitor Attraction Quality Assurance marque from Visit Britain and the Learning Outside the Classroom kitemark. Time Out voted Discover one of London’s top five family days out and named our bookshop as one of the top five children’s bookshops in London.
