If you’ve been considering venturing out to London with your family, you’ll already know that you need to prepare some ideas on the experiences you’re going to choose to enjoy in the city. While London city is known for its rich history, and eclectic range of art galleries and museums, perhaps you’d be doing a disservice to your family as a whole by spending a lot of your time visiting those attractions. After all, you’re here with your children, and they’ll most likely not be as interested in the history of the city as you are. Rather, they want to get their hands dirty so to speak, and get the sense of adventure they always naturally yearn for.
Luckily, with the range of attractions in the city, you’ll no doubt find plenty of attractions worth relishing as a whole family. For instance, consider the London Dungeon experience – which offers an enthralling insight into the history of the city in spectacular fashion. With actors, props, and surprise elements throw into this frenzy of an experience, your kids will most likely be entertained just as much as they are educated. Riveting stories about characters such as Jack the Ripper unfold, and an enchanting journey into some of the horrors of the London’s past begins the moment you walk.
The Marble Arch by Montcalm Hotel London is an accommodation near Great Cumberland Place that makes a holiday experience complete. With 24-hour room service, an in-house restaurant, opulent rooms, and a team of hospitable staff, you can’t go wrong by booking your stay here. As always, be sure to book your stay in advance. This central accommodation puts you close to some of the most thrilling experiences in the city – and not just the London Dungeon experience.
Adventure in the city
The Go Ape tree adventure located in Trent Park, allows you to get views from the top of trees, as you take on Tarzan swings, high ropes, and an epic zip wire together, and is found 10 minutes away from Cockfosters tube station on the Piccadilly line.
Lastly, a trip to Thorpe Park is a must-visit for those looking to push their excitement to the edge. It’s perfect for adrenaline enthusiasts, and those looking to try something to get them out of their comfort zone. This theme park venue is a little further out of central London, but is definitely worth the trip.
In summary, we recommend you start out with the three previously mentioned attractions, before you slowly ease into a more unruffled rest of your weekend – by visiting a few museums and galleries.
