Take the Family › Best Days Out

Family-friendly days out in London

From royal palaces and castles to a cable-car and other awesome viewing spots galore, and from museums and musicals to markets where you can munch on local produce as you browse, London is jam-packed with things to do with kids of all ages. And given that this is a city with such a high cost of living, it's fantastic that there are so many free things to do with kids in London, including several world-class art galleries and museums.

Yet this is no concrete jungle: a multitude of parks and green spaces provide perfect oases for picnics, enjoying fantastic playgrounds, catching some open-air theatre, and hiring bikes or boats.

These are a few of our handpicked London family attractions, some of them free to visit and some available with special offers.
