Best Indoor Attractions in London for Kids

Best Indoor Attractions in London for Kids

Let’s be realistic, the weather in England isn’t always nice and if are planning a visit to London and want a back up plan in case the heavens decide to open then we’ve put together a list of great indoor attractions in London which will keep the whole family occupied...

 

1. IMAX at The Science Museum

The Science Museum on its own is a real treat for children with plenty of interesting and interactive exhibits to hold their attention but it’s the IMAX here which is a definite must visit.  The screen is taller than four double-decker buses and is the world’s most immersive movie experience.  You could find yourself diving into the ocean, blasting out to space or getting up close with monkeys in the wild.  

 

2. Warner Bros. Harry Potter Studio Tour

Set just an hour outside of London, the Warner Bros. Harry Potter Studio Tour is an absolute winner with any young fans of the books and the movies.  Visitors can wander around real sets from the films, get up close with some of the props and costumes worn, enjoy some butterbeer and even board the Hogwarts Express.  A magical day out for children and adults alike.

 

3. Kidzania

Less than 20 minutes from The Marble Arch by Montcalm London Hotel is one of London’s newest attractions for children and the ideal option if you need to let the little ones burn off energy but the park is just out of the question.  Located inside the Westfield Shopping Centre, Kidzania is for children aged between 4-14 and is 75,0000sq ft of role play opportunities with more than 60 jobs represented.  Children can play at being pilots, surgeons, firemen, bankers, and plenty more.  Children are even paid in ‘kisZos’ for every 20-minute slot of work they do which can then be spent at the KidZania shop.

 

4. SeaLife London Aquarium

The SeaLife Aquarium is home to more than 500 species of aquatic life, an Ocean Tunnel, an impressive Shark Walk with seven different species of shark, rare Green Sea Turtles, and plenty of opportunities to discover more about the important conservation work which also takes place here with daily talks and feeds, the SeaLife London Aquarium is the ideal place to go if your children have an interest in what lives under the sea.  Don’t forget to visit the gift shop on your way out to take home your very own sea creature as a memento.

 

5. The West End

At theatres, all over the West End there are lots of kid friendly productions from musicals to puppet shows.  These shows have been designed with children in mind and are often vibrant and interactive and shorter than usual theatre shows as well.  There are also a number of theatres in the city which are solely for children including The Unicorn Theatre, Polka Theatre and Little Angel Theatre.  These theatres also regularly host workshops for anyone with an interest in the world of theatre and acting.
