 Family fun places to visit in London!


 Find fantastic family fun in London!

Believe it or not, London is much more family-friendly than you’d expect  to find in  such a vibrant and busy city. There is so much more to offer so bring the kids along and have fun together. Take a coach tour that will cover London and discover the wonderful sights while there!


1. The Museum of London Docklands

 The Museum of London Docklands is a wealth of history from Roman settlements to the Docklands’ regeneration. Unlock the history of London’s river, port and people in this historic warehouse and discover a wealth of objects from whale bones to WWII gas masks in state-of-the-art galleries, including Mudlarks, an interactive area for kids; Sailortown, an atmospheric re-creation of 19th century riverside Wapping; and London, Sugar & Slavery, which reveals the city’s involvement in the transatlantic slave trade.



2. The Science Museum 

  The Science Museum chronicles the development of science and industry in Great Britain over the centuries, with an extensive collection from biochemistry and photography to meteorology and astronomy.




 3. Diana Memorial Playground: 

This free playground in Kensington Gardens thrills children of all ages. There is an enormous wooden pirate ship surrounded by a sandpit! The  kids adore this and the bigger ones love to climb the mast for the views. There’s also a sensory trail, an outdoor music space, teepees,  swings, slides and climbing frames to keep everyone happy. The cafe also serves great coffee for the grownups too. 



4. The Natural History Museum:

 The  Natural History Museum is a centre of scientific excellence in the discovery of taxonomy and biodiversity, this world-famous museum promotes the discovery and enjoyment of the natural world through such exciting exhibits as the Life and Earth Galleries, wildlife garden and geological collections. Absolutely outstanding!!



5. Coram’s Fields:

A free central London playground and park, not far from the British Museum, with play equipment for all under 16’s including a huge sand pit for toddlers, slides and water features. There are even some farm animals and no adult can enter without a child so it’s a safe space to be too. 



6. Hamleys Toy Store:     

Hamleys Toy Store is paradise on Earth for children, teens and adults. The magnificent seasonal windows, the displays and installations of various themes and the hundreds of toys create the “myth” of Hamleys and make children from all countries want to visit. You can literally spend hours just taking in all the wonderful and entertaining surroundings.
