With Easter almost upon us, it’s time to think about child-friendly stuff you can do in London, to entertain your children over the Easter holidays. It’s so easy to drift from day to day, without a specific plan, but if you have some idea of where you might like to take them, you’ll be ahead of the game and the holidays won’t be wasted.
London has something for all children’s age groups and interests, it just takes a bit of organisation, but you’ll be glad you made the effort in the end.
- Visit the British Museum – The museum has over 8 million objects, spanning from ancient times to the present day. Highlights include the Rosetta Stone, mummies, and the impressive Egyptian gallery. Entry is free, but there may be some charges for special exhibitions. Check before you plan to go.
- See a show at the West End – London’s West End is famous for its world-class theatre shows. From The Lion King to Matilda, there is something for everyone’s musical tastes. Ticket prices are around £25.00, matinees may be cheaper.
- Explore the Science Museum – The Science Museum is an interactive museum focused on science, engineering, and technology. The museum has a wide range of exhibits, including airplanes, space rockets, and robots. Entry to the science museum is free, but you have to book especially with children at Easter
- Visit the Tower of London – The Tower of London is rich in history and has played a significant role in British history. Children can explore the Tower’s towers and learn about the Tudors, and the Crown Jewels, and see the famous ravens. Family tickets and concessions are available.
- Take a ride on the London Eye – The London Eye is a giant Ferris wheel situated along the Thames River. From the top, children can experience panoramic views of London, including famous sites like Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, and Buckingham Palace. Adult tickets are £36.00.
Be sure to check admission before you go to avoid queuing with bored and fractious children at Easter. Food can be expensive in the onsite cafes and street vendors. So picnics are a great idea.
