Things to Do With Kids in London

One thing’s for sure; you’ll never hear your little one moaning: “I’m bored!” in London with plenty on offer, and much of it free. There are plenty of kid-friendly ways to get to know the city, from the Museum of London’s exhibitions covering thousands of years of local history, to old railway carriages at the Museum of London Transport. For those who like to get stuck in, try the hands-on fun at the Science Museum and Natural History Museum, located very close to each other in South Kensington. The world of nature is there to see at the immense ZSL London Zoo and Sea Life London Aquarium to get up close to creatures great and small. And don’t forget the London stage, where musicals and performances are tailor-made for kids of all ages, most of which have matinees.

Most museums are free for children. For others there are combined saver tickets with major attractions including Madame Tussauds and the London Eye.
