There are hundreds of fun activities and events around the city that are perfect for kids, especially if it is their first time in London. It can be hard trying to make your way around the city if you’ve never been here before, so we’ve put together a list of things to do with your kids that are all in close range of each other. That way you won’t need to wrestle through crowds on the Underground while trying not to lose your offspring!
Tower Bridge is one of the most iconic landmarks in London and the surrounding area is packed with fun things to do too. This handy list of activities will help you keep the kids entertained all day long without having to worry about travelling too far from the Park Grand London hotel.
St Katherine Docks Treasure Trail
Hunt for lost treasure with your kids as they follow clues and make their way around the historic St Katherine Docks in search of adventure and hidden riches. This is a truly unique experience that will get your kid’s imaginations running wild, as well as their legs. Start off with a map that will guide you around the area, outlining locations and giving you clues.
For something different this summer be sure to book your spot in advance while organising your stay at our budget accommodation London. Whether you have toddlers or teens, the treasure hunt caters to three different age groups, which means that the whole family can get involved and have fun. This unique experience offers a fun-filled afternoon that will get you thinking while offering you a self-guided tour around one of London’s most iconic areas.
The Art of the Brick: DC Super Heroes
Just a short trip from your Park Grand London hotel, you will find one of the most fun-filled museums in all of London. If your kids aren’t interested in thousand year old architecture or classic paintings then this comic book themed gallery is the perfect place for an afternoon of fun. The unique exhibits at this colourful museum combine two of most children’s favourite things, Lego and super heroes. From a life-sized Flash made entirely from Lego to a recreation of the Bat Mobile, your kids will have plenty to tell their friends about when they get back to school.
Tower of London
The Tower of London itself is a great place to spend an afternoon with the kids, teaching them about the history of London and its iconic structures. The historic fortress will take your youngest on a journey back in time as they’re regaled with stories of famous historical characters and events that took place hundreds of years ago. It’s not just the kids that will learn a thing or two either, as you’ll be given the chance to learn about the origins of the Tower of London on a guided Beefeater tour. Your little medieval warriors can browse the armory and help the guards as they fight off the invading forces of the Red Earl. This action-packed experience is not something you’ll want to miss out on.
