The English capital sees millions of tourists from around the world all year round, whether it’s to indulge in some luxury shopping from some of the best British and international labels or it’s to try and catch a glimpse of the Royal Family, no one can deny that London has a lot to offer when it comes to finding fun things to do and will appeal to people of any age group.
So, if you’re planning to visit London soon with your own family or just expecting to have a mix of age groups within your group who would enjoy different things, then I’ve listed below some of the top things to see and do that the whole family can enjoy.
From Big Ben to Buckingham Palace, you can tailor it with your traveling style… And if you’re planning to visit some places in the UK, some historical spot like Stonehenge is only a day trip away from London.
London is quite easy to explore, especially when you travel in a group. There are plenty of things you can explore in the capital city, from strolling around Piccadilly to grabbing the best vegan food in London!
However, it’s always great to be careful with what you carry on your bag. Avoid some unwanted pickpocketing case, be careful with what you take around the city.
The London Dungeons
Anyone coming to London who’s interested in learning about the ancient and somewhat dark history of the city will find the London Dungeon to be a fun and lively day out.
This interactive attraction will take you back through the past of London where you’ll experience first hand, thanks to technology, actors and rides what the city was like for those who lived there during the days of Jack The Ripper, The Plague, and the infamous Guy Fawkes’.
Although the Dungeon is suitable for most age groups, it’s not recommended for children below 12, however, the decision lies with parents and guardians to decide if this will be suitable for their child, and generally it’s not too scary except for very small children, and this is mainly due to the fact that it’s quite dark inside with loud noises and sudden movements.
Ever wanted to hang out with The Queen or the Beckham’s for the day? Well, now is your chance.
Madame Tussauds wax museums can be found all over the world where they’re famous for creating eerily lifelike wax versions of celebrities and public figures from all over the world, with each location having some of their local celebrities as the main attraction.
This will make a truly fun and memorable day out for everyone of all age groups. It’s important to remember that this place is very popular, which can mean long queues, so it’s best to get there as early as possible or go at off-peak times.
The West End
Fun shows and live performances can be found all over The West End that will suit every age group, so whether you’re looking for something a little more out there like the Blue Man Group, a classic like The Lion King, or anything in between, then you’re going to be spoiled for choice here.
You can find west end tickets online or you can inquire when booking your trip.
The London Eye
If you want to get a full view of London, then the best way to see the whole city is from 135 metres aboard the London Eye observation wheel where you can spend 30 minutes at the top with a full view of the city and overlook all of the sights such as Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and many more.
