Ways to Enjoy Your London Holiday with Your Children

There is no education like first-hand experience. So, if you want to learn more about London, travel to the city and see for yourself everything that you have seen on travel documentaries and read about in various textbooks. All the same, if you want to broaden your children’s horizons, take them to different foreign places to enrich their minds. However, traveling with young children can be a little difficult compared to traveling solo. Young people can be impatient and demanding, so it’s important to draw up an itinerary of activities to keep them entertained.

There are plenty of things you can do in London that do not require spending a lot. For children, however, the choices are limited. Not everything that you can see or do in London will be well-received by them; so, it is always wise to do some research ahead of time.

Book a couple of days’ stay at any of the holiday apartments in London for the convenience of location, for the convenience of homelike comfort, and for the convenience of saving money. If you opt to stay at the Serviced Apartments Marylebone, you’ll discover that there are plenty of must-see attractions for kids that are not far from the place. Below is a list of those interesting places that can be found either in Marylebone or just near the district.

Madame Tussauds

Situated along Marylebone Road, the Madame Tussauds museum exhibits wax sculptures of famous personalities from around the world and across history. The children will certainly gush over the life-size, or rather, life-like waxworks of Britney Spears and David Beckham. They will be intrigued or horrified over the Chamber of Horrors and blown away with amazement by their Marvelous 4D experience.

The museum was founded by wax sculptor Marie Tussaud, who created her first sculpture in 1777.

Sherlock Holmes Museum

Older kids who appreciate reading mystery novels and watching detective movies will certainly enjoy a tour of the Sherlock Holmes’ fictional house on Baker Street in Marylebone. The museum occupies a Georgian townhouse that used to be a boarding house. In the museum, you will find interesting things that were, according to the novels, used by Sherlock Holmes himself, like the typewriter, the sitting room, and his laboratory. It can easily visited while residing at Presidential Marylebone Mayfair.

Pollock’s Toy Museum

The toy museum houses all kinds of toys from different places and different periods in history. What kid wouldn’t enjoy marveling at the diverse range of antique toys like the 4000 year-old Egyptian clay mouse or centuries old toy theatre? The museum is named after Benjamin Pollock, the creator and printer of Victorian toy theatre.

Sea Life Aquarium London

This is a terrific place to take children for an educational tour. Not only do they get to see a broad variety of fish and sea creatures, but they get to come face-to-face with sharks, rays, and other amazing sea life.


London is home to many beautiful parks. Take your pick from any of those lovely parks and enjoy your day. You can have a picnic at Hyde Park or play Frisbee or cricket at Richmond Park. You may also visit the Kensington Palace Gardens and marvel at the Peter Pan statue or experience strolling along the tree walkway at Kew Gardens. The free and wonderful things you can do with your child in a London park is endless.
