This world-renowned museum displays the world’s most extensive collection of permanent works. Activities at the British Museum are endless for families with kids. With so many artefacts on display, it might be a bit confusing where to begin, how to cover the maximum, and where to end.

Fortunately, there’s a Family Desk with plenty of helpful material, including kids-specific activity trails, to help you plan out your route in the museum. The best way is to do a thematic tour. For instance, you can plan a tour around the Egyptian theme and explore relevant sections and galleries from the trails, from the Egyptian mummies and the Rosetta Stone to a frightening sculpture of Scarab Beetle.

Watch Street Performances

While you’re out there with kids, how about watching street performances happening at almost every instant around the city?

All these street performances are undoubtedly free for the public. But they’re a way for teenagers and young adults to make some living from their talent and skilful actions. So, rewarding them with a few pennies would keep those performers going and the atmosphere blooming.

Walk Along the River and Bridges

London is adventurous, but the city’s main claim to fame is its spectacular scenery, no matter what neighbourhood you visit. After an enjoyable day, take a soothing walk along the bridges of London and, of course, the splendid River Thames.

26) Thames Path Walk

Explore Historic Landmarks and Monuments

London’s history is deeply rooted in its Royal culture. So, any historic tour around London would include royal and cultural landmarks. Plan a weekend trip around these landmarks and monuments with your family to explore the historical side of the capital, something London is widely popular for:

You can try explaining the history of the Great Fire of London to your kids, including how it burned 87 churches and over 13,000 houses in the city. The event is as inspirational as it is horrifying, as the city was reconstructed in a more organized and safer way once the impact began to cool down.

Discover Interactive Exhibits

London offers several free interorganisedhibits for families, both indoor and outdoor. Famous spots like the Royal Observatory in Greenwich and Mudchute Park in Tower Hamlets provide a wide range of exhibits for kids. These are your top accessible destinations to discover interactive exhibits:

42) London Underground Tours

FAQs

Can I visit multiple attractions in one day with my kids?

You can visit multiple attractions in a single-day tour. The best way is to have a themed walking tour, such as a Harry Potter Walking Tour, with a carefully planned tour itinerary. This will include all the filming locations within walking distance from each other. Likewise, the Thames Path Walk within Westminster City can work as a great sightseeing tour that can be completed in one day.

Are there any age restrictions for children at these attractions?

Only a few destinations have age restrictions based on the activity. Some adventure parks offer energetic and daring activities like tree-to-tree crossing, zip wire, and high-rope challenges. Diana Memorial Park, on the other hand, is more suitable for toddlers and children under 9 y/o for its basic yet interactive fun activities.

Are there any additional costs besides admission fees?

All the attractions on the list are free (at least for the basic entry part). Every add-on requires additional costs besides the basic admission. For example, a walking tour outside Greenwich Observatory is free, but entry to the courtyard and the Royal Observatory Telescope requires a paid ticket.

Are there any discounts available for families or groups?

Several attractions offer a range of discounts based on children’s age groups, generally categorised as 0-6, 7 to 12, and 13 to 19 y/o. However, refer to the official website of that destination to confirm the dcategorisedails.

What is the best mode of transportation for getting around London with kids?

The two best modes of transportation are the bus and the London Underground. The red double-decker bus offers some sightseeing experience as you travel through the streets of the capital. The London Underground is somewhat quicker and more instant if you have to travel to longer routes. Choose based on your requirements.
