What to do with the family in London
ZSL London Zoo
Expect gorillas, tigers and giraffes to reptiles, bugs and bats. ZSL London Zoo will have the whole family going animal crackers.
What better way to see this great city than from 135 metres up in the air? The London Eye revolves at a nice leisurely pace so you and the kids can take your time taking it all in.
Everyone will be amazed at how true to life the wax models at Madame Tussauds are. It’s probably your only chance to get up close and personal with your favourite celebs.
Harry Potter studio tour
The kids will love you forever if you take them behind the scenes of their beloved Harry Potter films. The Warner Bros Studios are located on the fringes on North West London but they’re easy accessible by public transport from Central London.
Natural History Museum
Who wouldn’t be excited by the prospect of seeing a full-scale model of a blue whale or the first T.Rex fossil ever found? And that’s not even scratching the surface of what’s on offer at the Natural History Museum. It’s free to get in, too.
