travel to london from suffolk this weekend

I'm a massive martin fan and have been lurking here for a while especially in OS moneysaving!
I'm looking for some advice. for my sons fifth birthday this weekend we are going to london from suffolk to see the dinosaurs. We are staying in central london ( his presnet from his nanny) overnight on saturday.
In the past I've gone by train as parking in central london always seems very expensive.... but fares seem really expensive for 2xadults and kids:eek:

Is there a cheaper way of getting there? we've got a car so could we drive park somewhere overnight cheaply or tavel the last part of the journey on the tube/train?
What about cheap ish child friendly places to eat ( otherwise it may have to be macdonalds!)
i hope this makes sense!
thanks in advance
