London can be a magnificent city to see with your kids. It’s filled to the brim with activities and attractions, more than any other place in the United Kingdom. I’m going to take you through a few highlights that London has to offer, however if you want a more extensive directory of family things to do in London, click on the link. London has something for any age and all appetites. Let’s see what London has to give.
I wanted to start with what is probably the most popular attraction in London for kids (and adults) and that is the Harry Potter Studios Tour, just outside of Watford. Fans and soon to be fans will adore it. If your kids are fans of the series, be it the books or the films, they will find something amazing at the tour. You are set free to explore as you want as it’s not a guided tour and you will be treated to the sights, sounds, and experiences of the films. Even if you’re not a fan of the series, but are a fan of cinema it’s a brilliant opportunity to find out cinema’s deepest secrets.
Sea Life London Aquarium
For water and animal lovers everywhere. This aquarium is the bee’s knees of animal attractions in London, if not the country. The aquarium is not just brilliant for encountering sea life, but as an educational tool. The aquarium features classrooms and is home to conservational breeding programmes as well as assisting with conservation groups.
The London Dungeon
Ah, the ever popular London Dungeon and it’s easy to see why it has retained its popularity and status of one of London’s best attractions. Using live actors and special effects the dungeons recreates for audiences of all ages famous gory, spooky, and macabre events from London’s history including Guy Fawkes, Jack the Ripper, and Sweeney Todd. It’s educational, scary, and great, great fun.
Chessington World of Adventures
Let’s finish with one of the country’s biggest and best theme parks. The Chessington World of Adventures is not just your average theme park as it also encompasses a zoo, featuring lions and tigers as well as a traditional theme park with rides and live shows. The theme park has different sections like Transylvania, Pirates Cove, and Land of Dragons. You could spend a week staying at Chessington World of Adventures and still not see it all, so make sure you have a look at what the place has to offer and plan an itinerary so you get to see everything you want to.
Just the Tip of the Iceberg
These are just four of the more famous and exciting attractions in London, however there are thousands for you to explore and find your own favourites. Luckily for you most of the events, although aimed at kids, are actually equally enjoyable for adults of any age. It’s never too late to get in contact with your inner child.
