Top 4 Things to do in London with Younger Children

*Collaborative Post

As England’s capital city, it is unsurprising that London is one of the most popular holiday destinations for families visiting the UK. In-country residents also flock to London throughout the year, making use of the cheap trains to London that make rail an excellent alternative to road travel.

It is not only the city’s astonishing heritage that draws families here: there is also a wealth of things to do in London designed specifically with children in mind, making it an easy and enthralling experience for the whole family. From unmatched family-friendly attractions to unique venues that unleash the imagination, discover the top places to visit in London with young children.

Marvel at London’s Museums

London’s museums are not just a rainy-day activity: with a host of world-class collections to choose from, these amazing venues will be a priority for adults and children alike. Family-friendly favourites include the Natural History Museum with its Dinosaurs exhibition and the hands-on Science Museum. Particularly special for kids is the V&A Museum of Childhood which houses a remarkable collection of traditional toys and games spanning generations. It is reopening as the Young V&A in July 2023.

Discover the World of Harry Potter

Harry Potter is beloved by children across the world: never before has a fantasy world collectively captured so many. Families visiting London can discover J. K. Rowling’s world through ‘The Making of Harry Potter’ experience at Warner Brother studios. Explore detailed set designs, spectacular costumes, and props used in the films, with special themed features running throughout the year. Pre-booking is essential!

Enjoy Outdoor Adventure at Hyde Park

Although the city may seem overwhelming at times, there are several green spaces in London where kids can engage in outdoor play. Hyde Park is the ultimate place for outdoor adventure: cycle the scenic trails under the shade of towering trees and let the little ones run wild in the big playgrounds. In the summer, you can also enjoy a leisurely boat ride on the Serpentine Lake followed by a picnic in the sunshine! Kensington Palace sits at one end of the park if you want to add in a bit of sightseeing.  

See Exotic Animals at London Zoo

For creature-loving children, there is no better activity than seeing the exotic animals at London Zoo! London Zoo is engaged with global wildlife conservation work, and they make education a priority for visitors. Each animal you encounter is accompanied by facts about its habitat, diet, and the dangers they face in the wild. It’s a great interactive way for kids to learn more about the precious wildlife of our world.

Tips For Teaching Your Kids About Pet Ownership

*Collaborative Post

Pet ownership is one of life’s greatest privileges. Adding a furry friend to your family can teach your kids much about the world and themselves.

Moreover, kids have a great deal of empathy coded into them already. One study showed that most young children thought that farm animals should be treated similarly to humans, though these opinions did peeter out amongst teenagers and adults.

Of course, more is needed for responsible pet ownership than big hearts and good intentions alone. Discipline and know-how are both needed here, too.

How can you teach your kids about pet ownership? Consult our quick guide below.
