7 Great Things to Do with Kids in London

A trip to London is a fantastic way to spend some time having fun with the whole family. There is so much for everyone to do. You’ll have no time to be bored; if anything, you’ll be wishing you had more time to fit everything in. Here are some of the best things to do on your family trip to the nation’s capital city, one of the most exciting in the world.

The Natural History Museum

All ages absolutely love The Natural History Museum. There is so much to see and learn, from giant whales to dinosaurs. If you are planning to visit during the school holidays, check online as there are often some great special exhibits or events taking place, including sleepovers for your little explorer.

Madam Tussauds

Madam Tussauds is the home of wonderfully realistic waxwork versions of all our favourite celebrities and figures from throughout history.  Madam Tussauds might appeal more to slightly older children, who have more of a sense of who people are, as they get to have fun posing for photos with copies of those they admire. A definite must for the Instagram loving teen.

London Dungeons

The Dungeons are an incredible interactive experience. Much more than just a museum, the dungeons use stages, actors and special effects to create a full blown show that you get to be a part of. 19 separate stages cover 1000 years of history. There are even rides. Though, perhaps this isn’t one for young children or squeamish adults.

SeaLife Centre

A visit to the aquarium is always a great day out. The London SeaLife centre is home to one of Europe’s largest collections of marine life. Older children, and adults, love getting to learn all about the different creatures while seeing them up close, while younger children and even babies love looking at the bright colours and movements.

London Zoo

The London Zoo is a must for the animal loving family. With baby animals and daily events, such as demonstrations and feeding times, as well as all of the usual zoo sights, there’s a lot to see and do.

The London Transport Museum

What kid doesn’t enjoy transport? The London Transport Museum is home to many different examples of transport throughout the ages. With lots of interactive exhibits, and displays, the kids get to have fun learning as they play.

The London Eye

The London Eye is a fantastic way to see London. See the whole city from a great height as you travel round this giant wheel on the South Bank of the River Thames. The Eye can get very busy, so consider booking fast track tickets online, especially if you have young children that don’t enjoy queues.

Be sure to look at the great family rooms London hotels have to offer, as well as planning any public transport you need. You can often save money on these by booking in advance. If you have time, and the energy, after all these great activities, why not check out some family friendly shows at the West End, or some of the city’s many fantastic restaurants and eateries. There really is something to please everyone.
