Activities for Kids in London

How would you even start talking about activities for kids in your country? I would go about it this way around: by acknowledging the fact that they're coming and then asking what exactly takes their fancy.

"Great, my friends! I'm happy to realise you have decided to come to London. Now the question is - are you coming with your kids and what activities do they like to do?"

There are plenty of activities in London for all tastes and all budgets. If you have an unlimited entertainment fund, you'll only need energy to keep up with your kids. Fortunately, there are so many free activities to keep us busy for longer hours in the day than we can spare! 

The Natural History Museum allows its young visitors to explore it at night. There's a torch-lit tour of the galleries, nature puzzles, then a chance to sleep over in the shadow of Diplodocus, in the Central Hall. We need to book in advance for these activities as they usually sell out.

We could race a car on the Alexandra Palace Boating Lake behind the main building on the ice-rink side of the park. They have traditional swan-shaped pedalo vessels, and now you can rent pedal boats in the shape of a VW car or a dragon, too. It gets busy on sunny days when school’s out.
