The capital city London is one of the most sought-after tourist destinations in the world. There are a wide variety of attractions in the city and the best part is that most of these places are suitable for people belonging to all age groups. Let’s explore the family friendly attractions of London.
While planning a family vacation in London, you can need to decide which attractions you would like to take your kids to. There are some pretty obvious options which you have such as the Tower of London, London Eye and the Buckingham Palace and there are some ‘not so obvious options’ like the Hamleys and the London Dungeon. Tower of London is a historical fortress whose roots are embedded in the history of the Royal British Family. Take a tour of this property to witness the torture chambers and those corners of the fort which are often termed as ‘haunted’ by spirits and ghosts.
The nearest underground station from the Tower of London is the Tower Hill Tube Station, from where you can buy tickets for Tower of London as well and while being at this mystical castle, do not forget to pay a visit to the Jewel House that features the Crown Jewels along with many other precious artifacts.
The next thing your kids would definitely love to visit is the Hamleys. Toys R Us is the biggest toy store on this planet but Hamleys is the oldest toy store of London and that makes it a lot more interesting to explore. The six-storied tall architecture is full of surprises and fun activities. London Eye is another very popular family attraction which you should include in your list. When you reach the highest point of the wheel you get to enjoy the bird’s eye view of London, which is pretty spectacular. You can even book a capsule for your family, exclusively.
If your kids love cruise rides, book a cruise ride on the River Thames or take them for an exclusive dinner or lunch on a cruise. If they like museums, take them to museums like Natural History Museum, Science Museum and the Madame Tussauds Museum.
