Family weekend in London

London is a family friendly city, offering a fantastic range of activities for parents and children.

You have so many fun things to do with kids in London, whether it’s climbing up to the top of St. Paul’s Cathedral, exploring the British Museum, boating on the Serpentine, making a brass rubbing in the crypt of St. Martin in the Fields, riding the double decker buses, checking out the crown jewels at the Tower of London, or riding horses through Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens.

 

 

London has been one of the great cities for millennia. In Roman times, London, Londinium, was the administrative center of Britannia. Down through the ages, despite plague, fires and war, like flow of the Thames, London is the continuity of Great Britain. As you travel through London with kids, it’s like your own time machine.

Whatever age your kids are, there’s more than enough to keep them entertained over as many family holidays and breaks as you care to make in the British capital, starting with such simple pleasures as a ride in a classic red London bus or a black taxi. There are also the world-class museums and the famous monuments, the mighty river and the wonderful parks (brilliant places for picnics and adventures ), the fabulous choice of family-friendly restaurants and cafés and the amazing array of accommodation for all pockets. Indeed, your only real problem is how to fit it all in. All the more reason to keep coming back for more…
