Best Things To Do & Days Out In Camden

Here at Day Out With The Kids we've found 1412 fun things to do in Camden for you and the family to discover, including indoor and soft play areas, museums and art galleries and tourist attractions. What's more, the weather shouldn't be a problem – 953 of the attractions are indoors. Finding the right Camden day out for your family is easy – simply explore the links below or use the filters at the top of the page to plan your next adventure.

Want to know what to do with the nature lovers in your family? Walk on the wild side and visit our Animals listings for zoos, safari parks and wildlife parks. Or are you looking for nearby places to visit in Camden with a culture vulture? We've picked the best children's museums, discovery centres and historic locations in the Sightseeing section.

If you're after a big day out during the school holidays, we can tell you where the nearest theme park, water park or ski slope is. For quieter days near home in term time, we can help you find the best soft play, leisure centre or pottery cafe.

For teachers planning the next class trip, many places are educational and suitable for all ages, from babies and toddlers to teens. Never be stuck for what to do with the kids again!
