Family Travel in London


We think London is one of the most family-friendly cities in Europe. Continually voted as one of the top family destinations around the globe, London’s sights, sounds and cultural offerings are a kids delight!

Fairytale Trip:

For families, there’s no better introduction to the history, culture and distinct charm of Europe, than a trip to London. It is only a seven-hour flight from the East Coast to a different country that is chock full of palaces and royalty!

Quintessentially British:

London taxis, double decker busses, driving on ‘the wrong side’, red phone booths, ‘the Royals’, Harrods, Hamleys, Picnics in the park with a Fortnum and Mason ‘hamper’, High Tea … these are a few of our favorite things in London!

Slew of Activities:

A ride on the London Eye, a visit to a castle in the Tower of London, a scavenger hunt around Trafalgar Square and feeding the birds at one of London’s glorious parks will surely reflect joy in your kids’ eyes. London museums are free for all – allowing the opportunity to immerse your children in all of London’s extraordinary range of art galleries. Often these museums include craft activities, visual stimulation effects, and many things that appeal for all ages. Additionally, London is a hub of events. No matter the time of year you travel, life is never slow here. Look forward to the fairs, events, exhibitions, shows, and live performances that form the heart of London!

More than two centuries ago the English writer Samuel Johnson famously said,

“You find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.”

London truly is an incredible destination offering boundless adventures for you and your family.
