The Easter hols are nearly here so we’ve rounded up the best activities for families in London to keep everyone entertained!
Travel back in time to see dinosaurs in the wild
One of the best things to do in London with kids is to see living dinosaurs with your very own eyes! From now until 31 July, Greenwich Peninsula has been transformed into TimeBase67 – an extraordinary Jurassic research station built in the past. As well as immersing yourself in a laboratory tour, you’ll get to ride across the Cretaceous plains through herds of Triceratops. Spot on for the little explorer in your clan.
Hunt for Easter eggs in the exclusive Cadogan gardens
Nothing says welcome to spring quite like an Easter egg hunt. This year, London’s resident Easter Bunny has hidden a whole host of treats in Cadogan Place Gardens; an exclusive access private garden area just off Sloane Street in Chelsea. Stay at Jumeirah Carlton Tower one of the best hotels in London and join this annual festivity in the gardens that is normally only accessible to local residents……..Baskets and wellies at the ready!
Explore a classic: Winnie-the-Pooh
Another top activity in London for kids is to experience the timeless and universal appeal of the much-loved British teddy bear. Discover the story behind the creative works of A.A Milne and E.H Shepard through the V&A Museum’s Winnie-the-Pooh-exhibition. Find great artefacts from an original Winnie-the-Pooh teddy bear to precious pencil drawings from E.H Shepard. Make sure you catch one of the pop-up performances or drop-in design workshops which allow children to create their own mobile inspired by a classic storybook – perfect for engaging the little ones.
Bond over a book and brunch in Belgravia
Families can live like a local in Chelsea and enjoy a book and brunch experience at Lowndes Bar & Kitchen. The brand new children’s Book and Brunch Sunday menu allows kids to enjoy a range of delicious dishes, fresh orange juice and a copy of Beatrix Potter’s classic Peter Rabbit book to keep and cherish. Don’t worry, mums and dads, you can enjoy an adults-only two course brunch menu with an accompanying book and unlimited tea and coffee. What’s more, bottomless bubbles are available for those wishing to treat themselves!
Immerse yourself an indoor city run by kids
Designed for children aged 4-14, Kidzania is another top activity in London for kids! It allows your little aspiring pilots, chocolatiers, dentists and dancers to play out their dream job in a city built solely for children. Children can earn KidZos for their work, which they can use to spend from their own bank account – just like mum and dad! The experience lasts four hours and visitors can choose from a range of slots on their chosen day.
