London for Families

London abounds eclectic activities for adults… and also for kids. Whether you’re visiting during half term or just for a weekend, there’s plenty of things to do with your little ones that adults will enjoy as well. Head to Tate Modern’s Family Zone, ride a bike in Victoria Park and try a Tim Burton-themed Afternoon Tea.

  • Tate Modern’s Family Facilities

    Bankside, London SE1

    The international centre for contemporary art offers diverse activities adapted to younger visitors.

    All exhibitions are free for under 12s, and installations such as audio kits, interactive screens and – our favourite – a drawing digital bar that projects sketches on the wall, will peak your children’s interest in no time.

  • Natural History Museum

    Cromwell Rd, London SW7

    Home to the finest collection of fascinating specimens, the Natural History Museum is incredibly famous and geared for kids for two (huge) reasons: Dippy, the cast of a full Diplodocus’ skeleton, and a giant, animatronic T-Rex. Need we say more?

  • Kensington Gardens

    W2 2UH

    Run riot in the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Playground, with its pirate-ship centrepiece.
