Top 5 (Discount) Things to do with Kids in London
There is so much on in London that’s fun for kids – even if the school holidays are over. The final days of summer provide pleasant weather, and it’s worth making the most of them before winter arrives. If you’re worried about the cost, search for things to do in London using SmartSave voucher codes and you can get discounts to eat in restaurants, stay in hotels, visit the theatre and see many other tourist attractions as well.
Here are some of London’s most popular child-friendly attractions that also accept discount codes:
Planet Hollywood: An exciting outing for the whole family, the Planet Hollywood in Haymarket provides “Hollywood inspired dining” for lunch or dinner in rooms that go by the name of Bond, British or Cabana! Take your pick from an American-style a la carte menu that features hunger busting burgers and chicken wings (there’s a special kids’ menu too); main meals cost around £12.
Ripley’s Believe It or Not: This famous museum in London’s Picadilly Circus in the West End features amusing and weird exhibits across five storeys and include things like a yarn-covered Ferrari, an upside down tea party and dinosaur eggs! Tickets cost £26.95 for an adult, so this is a great opportunity to order online using discount codes.
Harry Potter London Bus Tour: One of the best things about J.K. Rowling’s incredible book series is that it encourages young people to read. Even if your kids have read the books and watched the movies, keep their interest alive by taking them on this tour of film locations that include Platform 9 ¾ at Kings Cross Station and 12 Grimmauld Place, home to the Leaky Cauldron.
Tower Bridge Exhibition: This is an iconic structure on the city’s skyline and the views from the bridge are breath-taking. More interesting for kids perhaps are the Victorian Engine Rooms that provide an inside scoop into the old workings of this famous bridge.
London Wetland Centre: It’s a great idea to encourage younger people to be environmentally aware. This centre in Barnes, south-west London, has attractive walkways and lakes, and an impressive collection of birds. Open 7 days a week and an adult ticket costs £10.99.
