Best Things To Do & Days Out In London

There are lots of fun things to do in London, and much more than our royal family, with activities and adventures for all ages.

So, prepare to be dazzled by the bright lights of the big city on your family day out in the capital of England!

Museum fans are spoilt for choice. Explore all the natural wonders of the world at the Natural History Museum or pack your lab coat for a trip around the Science museum. History, art and design are well covered too thanks to The British Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum.

After all that education and experimentation take to the shops on Oxford Street to indulge in a bit of retail therapy before meeting your favourite celebrities at the tourist hotspot of Madame Tussauds. Take a walk on the wild side at London Zoo where you’ll have a roaring good time spotting lions, lemurs and lots more or explore the waters without getting wet at Sea Life London Aquarium.

At the top of the London Eye you’ll see that there are still plenty of sights to visit, from the terrors of the Tower of London to the glory of Westminster Abbey. London family days out offer a chocolate box of city treats for you to enjoy!
