3 Best Things To Do With The Kids In London

Travelling with the kids can add a lot more planning to your trip. You can’t just head somewhere and go with the flow! Most children require entertainment and a structure to their day. Face it – you are going to know when your kid is bored or not. 

Fortunately, London is a place that offers plenty of things for kids to see and do. If you are heading to the capital in the near future, then you may want to add the following attractions to your list of things to do.

Warner Bros Studio

This filming location is a bit of a drive out if you are staying in the very heart of the city. However, this magical journey is well worth it if you are planning a day out with the kids.

The Warner Bros Studio is located in Watford, which is less than an hour’s drive from the main city. The studios are most well-known by Harry Potter fans, as this is where all eight of the films were made over ten years. Even if your children aren’t fans of the franchise, there is plenty to see and interact with during the studio tour. You can see the sets used in the films and even have a go at flying a broomstick if you fancy it. There is also a café at the studio so that you can stop for lunch and make a day out of the studio tour if you feel like it.

Madame Tussauds

The Warner Bros studio tour may not be as iconic as some attractions in London but give it time. One attraction in the city centre that you are sure to have heard of is Madame Tussauds. This waxwork museum has been around since 1895, with a flurry of famous waxwork faces coming in and out of the building throughout the years.

Your kids are sure to recognise some of these wax mannequins during your trip. The place is currently home to celebrity artworks such as Gordon Ramsey, Chewbacca, Tom Hardy,  Lady Gaga, and SpongeBob SquarePants. If that doesn’t sound like something they would enjoy, the museum is also home to the Marvel 4D event. Marvel 4D is an interactive movie experience featuring all your children’s favourite superheroes.

Force Attax Extra


There is nothing like letting your kids loose for the afternoon in a designated area. KidZania is an interactive play area in Shepherds Bush that allows your kids to explore the fake city in any way they want.

The area has been thoroughly safety checked, so there is no need to worry about a trip to London Medical during your stay. What’s more, kids over the age of eight get to explore on their own- providing parents with a much-needed break.



London may not appear to be the most child-friendly place when you see it on the news. However, this bustling metropolis is the perfect place to go for families. There is something for everyone.
