London Vacation Kids

Enjoy a rewarding, cultural, and historical London vacation with kids! Famous for its iconic landmarks, royal heritage, and diverse ambiance, it’s the capital of England and the biggest city too. As such, you’ll discover a lot of things to do in London with kids.  Visit renowned sites like The Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, and Big Ben. Don’t forget to stay for the changing of the guards! Then, learn more about the Royal Family on a visit to Kensington Palace, Hampton Court Palace, or Windsor Castle. Families can even feel like royalty themselves during afternoon tea, a quintessential English pastime! Give your children a chance to blow off steam in the famous Princess Diana Memorial Playground, located in Kensington Gardens. Go shopping at world-renowned retailers like Harrods Department Store or Hamleys (a toy store with a whopping seven floors). London also has a ton of free museums!

Need more things to do on a London vacation with kids? Of course, movie fans can’t visit the city without seeing the Harry Potter Studios!  If you have an Instagram lover in your family, head to Peggy Porschen for a one-of-a-kind photo and some delicious desserts. Or, see a show in London’s theatre district to watch a live performance. Families can also take a cruise down the River Thames to see London from a new vantage point. Hear what locals have to say at the Speakers’ Corner in Hyde Park. At the end of the day, come home to a cozy family-friendly hotel, since there are so many! Or, use London as a jumping-off point for an even longer vacation, featured in our 9-day London and Paris Itinerary. Whether you embark on a guided tour or explore the city yourself, we’re positive your London vacation with kids won’t disappoint!
