How to stop the kids getting bored in London this month


When you plan a weekend away with the kids, it can be a daunting task trying to think of enough activities to ensure they stay entertained for the duration of the break.

Restlessness and boredom can result in mood swings and tantrums amongst little ones, which is the last thing you need when you want to get away from home for a few days.

Luckily we’ve rounded up some of the best activities you can get up to in London to ensure your kids remain occupied and enjoy themselves this month.

After a jam-packed day chasing after your overly-excited family, your room at the Grand Royale London Hyde Park offers the perfect retreat for you to soak in a long, hot bath and enjoy a good night’s sleep.

Enjoy exhibits and games at the Museum of Childhood :-

Located in Bethnal Green, this fascinating museum explores what is has been like growing up in Britain over the last 150 years with numerous exhibits and antique dolls. Adults will be able to reminisce about their youth while youngsters can take part in organised activity sessions that includes dressing up in Victorian costumes and theatrical attire. Here you’ll also find a Punch and Judy puppet show and a sandpit for toddlers to crawl in.

You’re likely to be worn out after exploring all that this museum has to offer, so why not head back to your Hyde Park Hotels London where the little ones can catch up on their sleep?


Combine coffee and play to keep everyone happy :-

When you’re desperate for your caffeine fix but the kids are nagging you for some playtime, London is home to a number of cafes that ideally offer both. Head to the Bear and Wolf café in Tufnell Park, where you can sip on as many lattes as you wish while the children explore the play area with toys and books to keep them entertained. The café also offers a reasonably priced food menu, great for when small tummies start rumbling.

Once you’ve filled up on Americanos and hot chocolates, stroll back to your room at the Grand Royale London, get cosy and enjoy a night in with your family.

Bring their favourite books to life at Discover :-

Your little ones imaginations will be running wild when they visit the Children’s Story Centre, where they will be able to take part in a variety of different activities and have the opportunity to make up their own stories. Explore Story Land, where kids will be greeted by a number of exciting characters including space alien Squiggly Diggly who requires some inspiration for new stories on his planet. If the weather is on your side, take things outside to the Story Garden, where swings, a spacecraft and a pirate ship will be sure to keep the kids entertained for hours. To round off your trip enjoy sandwiches and freshly baked cakes in the ground floor café and browse the exceptional range of books in the children’s bookshop.
