There are absolutely loads of things to do in London to keep the kids entertained, and that you will enjoy too. It important that its also interesting for you or that you can chill while they are having fun so that you don’t all go crazy in the countdown to back to school. Whats more most of these are free so you don’t have to break the bank.
Underneath Waterloo station are the Leake Street Tunnels where on the 22nd of August it becomes a Paint Jam – 40 artist will be competing for a £250 prize. You can spectate for free and there will be music, food and even workshops for kids.
Also on Saturday the 22nd of August – there is the Teddy Bears Picnic with all of your favorite fairy-tale characters – stories- craft making – and party games all for £5 to raise money for Nightingale Cancer Support Centre.
Of course we would mention this one – see our other post for details
This sadly is not cheap but it would be worth it for the experience and the views – from now until the end of September you are able to climb the 200 steps to the top of Windsor Castle’s Round Tower – the guided tour lasts around 45mins.
For our book lovers – On Sunday the 23rd of August – Author Benji Davies will be reading from his book Storm Wale – and there will be various activities on the day – its free but you will need to book.
This isn’t free but kids do go free with a paying adult – You are taken on a magical historic journey through 2000 years of London Bridge – with added surprises so watch out.
There is always lots going on at the National Gallery – Its free to get in to see an amazing collection of paintings – There are Tours, Arts and Crafts, Story-time, and various exhibitions and displays – Many are free events others are chargeable – check the website in the link.
Trafalgar square has lots more to offer – let the kids have a run around in the square and have a look at Nelsons Column – before heading over to St. Martin-in-the-Fields.
So there are some of our favorites for the next couple of weeks but if you want even more – here are 100+ things to do in London from Go London – not all kid friendly but its a great list.
If all that fails, we suggest you get them some great books let them travel into their imaginations!
