Things to Do in London for Kids
London has loads of great activities for children. You could take the kids out in London every day for two years and still not get to see and do everything! From your base at the Collingham – one of London’s top child-friendly holiday lets – you are free to explore the city at your leisure. From your apartment in South Kensington you are on the doorstep of some of the world’s best museums, including:
- The Natural History Museum – 80 million things to see!
- The Science Museum – 300,000 exhibits!
- The British Museum – everything from prehistory to modern times
- Bank of England Museum – find out about the Bank’s ghostly nun…
- London Transport Museum – 80 vehicles including the world’s first tube train
- Museum of London – the best city in the world from Roman times to today
- National Maritime Museum – the history of London’s seafaring past
- HMS Belfast – Europe’s largest preserved WW2 warship
Better yet, in most cases entry is free, though some of the temporary exhibitions or attractions are chargeable so check the websites before you go.
One of the best ways to see London and its 2,000 years of amazing history is to put on your walking shoes and pound the pavements! You may need to stop for a drink every now and again but if you’re in London, you can’t miss St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, our stunning royal parks, Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square, London Zoo, Trafalgar Square and Tower Bridge.
If walking isn’t your cup of tea, the famous London bus tours are a great way to see everything. You can hop-on and hop-off as many times as you like and on some there is commentary in multiple languages.
The buses and tubes are also a good way of getting round the city but if you’re here for a while, consider getting an Oyster card (available at all tube stations and lots of shops). It makes travel much cheaper and you won’t have to worry about buying tickets every day.
If your kids are Harry Potter fans, there’s a whole host of tours and walks including the tour of the Warner Bros Studio where they will find themselves transported into the Hogwart’s Great Hall, Dumbledore’s study, Privet Drive, Diagon Alley and of course Platform 9¾!
Over the summer you’ll find dozens of family fun days at all sorts of attractions as well as shows, cinemas, city farms and even indoor soft play if the notoriously unpredictable English weather gets the better of you!
There are also dozens and dozens of child-friendly restaurants to go to. Of course there are pizza and burger joints on every corner but there are also some very cool places to go like Planet Hollywood, the Hard Rock Café, the Rainforest Café, Bill Wyman’s Sticky Fingers, Giraffe, Ed’s Diner and the Forrest Gump-inspired Bubba Gump Shrimp!
Remember, when you stay at our acclaimed kids friendly holiday apartments in London, our reception and concierge staff are available to help and guide you around the city. Just ask and they’ll be glad to point you in the right direction.
