London is a great place to take children, as well as the experience of being able to visit the capital city, which they will no doubt have heard much about at school, there is also a great deal for them to see and do.
Here are three of our favourite options:
ZSL London Zoo
In Regents Park, this zoo offers over 700 different species for you to explore and appreciate. There are daily live animal shows and the zoo houses some of the world’s most amazing animals as well. Ideal for children of all ages, this is a great day out.
Sea Life London Aquarium
This aquarium is the ideal place to visit on a rainy day. Home to one of Europe’s largest collection of marine life, there is lots here to see and do. The glass tunnel is a particularly exciting feature, and if you are feeling brave you can even feed the rays.
The Natural History Museum
As one of the best free attractions in London, the Natural History Museum is well worth a visit. You could spend the entire day wandering around the many different exhibits or simply pop in to visit a favourite such as the Dinosaur exhibition. Children will love to explore this fantastic museum.

From the Museum of Transport right through to tours around some of London’s key sports arenas; there is never a shortage of family days out to be had. You could even spend some time simply wandering around London and taking in some of the more traditional sights such as looking out for the open topped red buses, watching the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace or visiting one of the many fantastic royal parks.
