How about watching a big blockbuster movie on a big screen at Hampton Court Palace? The screen will be situated on the East Front Lawn with the Tudor palace as the backdrop. You'll also have to time to walk around some of the gardens beforehand (although entry to the palace itself will not nbe included).
Tonight's movie will be Steven Spielberg's dinosaur movie Jurassic Park (PG, 124 mins). Just in case you're the only person on planet earth who hasn't seen the movie yet (or maybe you're under 25, in which case you're too young -- jeez, that makes me feel old!), it tells the story of a theme park that has discovered a way to bring dinosaurs back from the dead. Needless to say, things don't go according to plan, and it's not long before people start getting their heads bitten off. But don't worry... because that's where Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum come in (and Laura Dern, too... but all she does is scream a lot).
Note: There is limited seating capacity so advanced booking is recommended. You need to bring your own blanket to sit on (or you can order one when booking the tickets). Premium tickets come with a complimentary drink at the bar and a decent seating position. Bear in mind that screenings usually go ahead in bad weather -- so be prepared for a bit of drizzle and cold. (This is London, after all, and summer is no guarantee of warm weather!)
