Cow-nose Sting Rays

In London with children? From dogfish to dungeons, there’s plenty to see and do in the capital!

Here are 5 London attractions armed and ready for kids

London Zoo

Always a great day out, London Zoo has opened the new Animal Adventure, where kids can experience the sounds, sights and smells of the animal kingdom. Split into 4 zones, in the Animal Adventure kids can:

  • Climb like Coatis in the Tree Top Village
  • Explore underground tunnels and meet the animals in the Roots Zone
  • Play in the mini stream and learn all about how water gives life and the importance of conservation
  • Meet monkeys, llamas, donkeys and pigs, AND feed the sheep and goats as well!

London Zoo also offers free activities and games for kids as they go round.

Sea Life London Aquarium

Offering kids the chance to see and interact with the sea-life!

Handle friendly crabs and starfish in the supervised dive discovery rock pools. Admire the curious cow-nose sting rays and the dancing dogfish, and children will love the feeding time frenzy and diving displays.

Keep kids on their toes with fact finder trails available inside.

Did you know: there’s over 2 million litres of water at Sea Life London Aquarium!

Original London Sightseeing Tour

An open bus tour is the essential introduction to London and a great way to see the sights.

Worried about the kids sitting still? DON’T! Every child receives a free fun pack which includes an activity book to keep active minds and fidgety fingers busy.

London history is made fun with commentaries especially designed for kids.

Madame Tussauds

One of the most popular London attractions, with a 4d movie experience and 14 interactive zones, Madame Tussauds is perfect for kids.

You can score a winning goal under the watchful gaze of David Beckham, deliver a speech at the UN, or sing and dance on stage with Beyonce and Kylie! Madame Tussauds also gives an opportunity to walk the red carpet and strike a pose with your favourite celebrity or sport star.

London Dungeon

Vengeance Ride - London Dungeon

Kids love gore and a fright, and the London Dungeon certainly delivers! Though not advised for very young children or those with a ‘nervous disposition,’ live actors bring London’s most gruesome history to life.

The London Dungeon also has 3 rides bound to thrill. Drop to doom on the Extremis ride and prepare to get wet on the Traitor Boat Ride to Hell… Giving you the chance to blast ghosts, the brand new ‘Vengeance’ is the UK’s first 5D laser ride.
