There are many great Museums in London and many are free.

These days, nearly all of them will have something christmassy going on, and activities for the kids, so it depends on their interests as to what they might like!

They are old enough to pick for themselves I think, so give them a guide-book and let them choose....

For "Theatre" maybe consider a Pantomime, a form of Christmas entertainment unique to the UK and particularly aimed at children, tho many adults find them fun, too!

Current good "normal" show for children would include:

The Lion King, Matilda, Charlie & Chocolate Factory, Stomp, Wicked.....

I can second a pantomime as it is a form of theatre unique to the UK. You will be here just as the season starts and it normally runs through until the end of January. Lots of good fun with the main story being a children's fairy tale. There is plenty of audience participation and corny jokes. Part of our tradition at Christmas.
