Top child-friendly activities in Shepherd's Bush, London - Where to take the children

London is an amazing family vacation destination that has a lot of incredible activities and things to do and see for people of all ages. To know what you can take your children to while in the city, read on.


Sort Out Your Accommodation

London is a lovely city that is full of culture and offers a variety of attractions. If you are going with family, make sure you pick a family style hotel to stay at and also note that the resort or hotel you pick is centrally located thus making travelling within the attractions easier. Too much travelling can make the children in your family restless even before they reach the attraction. Most family travellers who visit the city choose a stay like Dorsett Shepherds Bush London or look for similar London West End hotels.


Check Out The Museums And Exhibition Halls

This city has more than 200 museums and display halls and a huge number of them are free of entry. All of these exhibition halls will not be loved by your children but a few of them will offer an engaging and informative trip to the young ones in the family. The London natural history museum is a success with all family members. It is clearly one of the best historical centres in all of London and is home to actual skeletons of dinosaurs, life-sized models and even a moving model of a t-rex that your children will definitely love. This museum also has a lot of innovative displays that are targeted at different age groups.


The Sea Life London Aquarium

The sea life London aquarium and isn't really an exhibition hall or a gallery in the usual sense. Regardless, it can still entertain your children and provide some incredible information about marine life and highlight the importance of keeping the ocean animals safe. The museum of discovery is another extraordinary place that children seem to love.


Shopping In London

There are a lot of child-friendly stores in London. Kensington gardens and Hyde park are two of the greatest shopping hubs in London. Hyde Park is an amazing place to bask in the sun on a warm day or to appreciate the view and have a meal while taking in the environment and activities around you. Kensington gardens, on the other hand, includes a popular collection of peter pan themed statues and a Princess Diana memorial playground that will entertain your children for sure. Found right next to the Buckingham palace is the saint James park which has a pelican reserve and provides amazing views for the visitors. If you are willing to make the trip, the royal botanic gardens are also a great spot to visit and will be definitely enjoyed by people of all ages, be it young and old.


The Architecture Of London

When you think of the architecture in London you must not take the children to the old buildings that will spark no joy in them. Your mind should think of the London Eye and the London bridge. From the London Eye, you will get an amazing and unique perspective of the city's skyline. If your kids are not afraid of heights riding all the way to the top will be a great idea. The changing of the watchman at the Buckingham Palace is yet another entertaining thing you can watch and is free of cost. Make sure you start off early and cover most of the spots by night. London is known to have sudden rain falls and you do not want to cut your tour of the city halfway because with sunset comes the rain. The Thames river tour is yet another awesome way to explore the city of London without walking much.
