some ideas of things to do in London with kids

London is a vast sprawling metropolis and there is so much to see and do that sometimes it can be a little daunting trying to decide what to do while you are here, especially if you have children.  I have compiled a list of both fun and historical things to do in London that will hopefully be of interest to children of various ages.  This is not by any means a complete list but just a taster really of what there is on offer.  Some of the attractions will be suitable for older children and others will be fine for kids from 3 years to 90! :)  

What I have done is compile a list of the relevant links to the various websites and from there you can have a look and decide what suits you best.  As I say this is just a taster, but caters for the younger generation as well as being interesting for adults.

Some of those listed do require payment ranging from £3.50 per person through to £20+ per person, others are FREE!!! :)  Please note that I am not an affiliate for any of these links and provide these for your information only.

So here is the list:
