Kids' Activities in London: things to know before you go

Finding some fantastic fun things for the kids to do can be a challenge. We’ve answered some of the most common questions around kids’ activities in London to help you find the perfect day out.

What is there for kids to do in London?

There’s plenty of family-friendly fun to be had on a day out in London, from museum tours to bouncing good fun. Here are just some of our suggestions:

  • Go trampolining. Take them to a trampoline park to get the jump on a great family day out. At Flip Out in Brent Cross they can bounce across wall-to-wall trampolines, tackle an obstacle course, and dive into foam pits. Perfect for tiring them out.
  • Watch a live show. Meet your favourite YouTube stars and throw down with your favourite dance crews at one of London’s popular half-term shows - the Digital Kids Show promises fun for all the family.
  • Dig for fossils. Younger kids will love hunting for dinosaurs, gold panning, geode breaking and digging for prehistoric finds at Fossils Galore. Best of all, they get to take home their very own piece of the past.

What can families do in London?

Whether you want to learn a new skill or see the sights of the big city, there’s a wide and varied range of family experiences in London that'll keep everyone happy and entertained on a day out. The Graffiti Workshop offers a great range of classes - try something new and learn the basics of street art. Using aerosols, markers and stencils to create imagery, you also get to take your masterpiece home. Show off your climbing skills at Strong Hold London, one of the UK's largest indoor climbing centres, or try a London Ghost Tour to find out all about London's haunted past.

Where can I take my toddler in London?

Soft play areas and animal centres are always a firm favourite with toddlers – and London’s got them in spades. The adventurous play areas at both Bramley's Big Adventure and Sindbads Soft Play Centre offer the perfect space for kids to tumble, slide and swing their way through the day - giving parents a much-needed break. Toddlers will love the penguin colony at the London Zoo, seeing the kangaroos at Ventura Wildlife Park and hands-on reptile and bug experiences at Eagle Heights. There are many more fantastic days out to choose from when you browse through Groupon's activities for kids in London.

What are the best rainy day activities for families in London?

If the weather isn’t fair, don't despair - there are plenty family activities in London that you can enjoy even when it rains.

  • Visit a museum. Many London museums offer guided tours - perfect for rainy days. Explore the treasures of The British Museum, walk among dinosaurs at The Natural History Museum and get up close with the masterpieces in the Tate Modern.
  • Go on a sightseeing tour. When it's raining outside, take a bus or boat instead of walking. The kids will be happy that they're not getting wet, and you can all enjoy seeing the sights of London in relative comfort.
  • Visit an exhibition. Perfect for the whole family, and all under one roof. London's large exhibition centres stage great family-friendly events throughout the year, such as the Ideal Home Show in Olympia, and BODY WORLDS Museum Experience at the London Pavilion.
