Amazing London Experiences For Families

Today I have a guest post from Mel who runs Melanie's Fab Finds. Mel writes about life in London with a young family. Go check out her blog!

Visiting London with children? Then you'll want to make sure that that visit is a memorable one for all. This city is full of fun activities that are great for kids and families. It's hard to know what to do especially if you search the internet as you'll be inundated with hundreds of options. Here are some great options for the whole family to enjoy.

London Experiences That Families Will Love

ZSL London Zoo

Suitable for families with children of all ages London Zoo attracts thousands of visitors each year. Visitors can see over 500 different species of animals. As well as seeing the animals at the zoo they also offer experiences giving you the chance to be a keeper for a day or have a once-in-a-lifetime animal encounter. It is a great day out and you'll need the day to see everything and make use of the different photo ops and play area. The children loved that they were free to get hands-on with some of the animals too.

A Visit To Wembley Stadium

If you are planning a visit to London with the family, why not arrange it to coincide with an event at Wembley Stadium? This iconic UK stadium has been in London since 1923, a hundred years this year. As well as hosting events in the past such as the Olympics, and the World Cup, it is used for a variety of sporting and music events. So if you and your kids want to see the latest football friendly or Harry Styles in concert, it is always worth checking out what is on at Wembley Stadium before your trip to London. 

Escape Rooms

These have grown in popularity with both adults and children. There are plenty to choose from and you can do these as a family. Mission Breakout is suitable for a range of ages and is a really unique option when it comes to escape rooms. Located in a disused tube station, this fully immersive escape room challenges players to navigate through, work together and solve clues to escape in time. It's fun, different and ideal for a family day out, especially on a rainy day.

Afternoon Tea

I took my daughters for their first-ever afternoon tea last year at St Ermins Hotel. They had the most amazing time. The food was great as was the service. Both loved being treated like Princesses and it was definitely one of those experiences they'll treasure forever. The afternoon tea was themed which added to its appeal. You'll find numerous themed afternoon teas in London to choose from and it certainly is a relaxed and indulgent way to enjoy an afternoon.

The Crystal Maze

Many adults will recall tuning in to watch The Crystal Maze as children. Now you can take on the challenge yourself. This is great for anyone with families with older children (age 13+). Travel through the 4 adventure zones; Medieval, Industrial, Aztec and Futuristic. Collect as many crystals as you can, the more you have the more time in the crystal dome!!! This fun, action-packed game is certainly popular with an exceptionally high number of 5 star reviews on Trip Advisor. Clearly a fabulous experience worth doing at least once.

The Sealife Centre

Having been last year for the first time my son can't wait to visit again. Here you'll see hundreds of different marine species and come face to face with a giant turtle, sharks, jellyfish and more. The kids loved seeing all the different types of marine life, stepping over the shark walk, and playing on the well-placed activity stations that you'll find everywhere. Amazing for children and adults and perfect to visit as part of a family day out.

So there you have it, these are just some of the great activity options available for days families visiting or living in London. If you are looking for a great place to stay try the Park Grand Paddington Court London and Nannybag storing luggage London to store your luggage when you check out of an apartment.

Have a wonderful visit. We look forward to seeing some of you over on the blog or social media pages.
