Things to do in London with Kids.

One place I really want to take Jack to is London, there's just so much to see and do there and it is our Capital after all. We did look at going before baby arrives, but financially and with everything else happening it just wasn't do-able. 
Below I've put together a list of places that I would love to take Jack too but of course, London is a big place and there's lots more places to visit. 

Sea Life London Aquarium. 
We have visited a couple of Sea Life centers now, especially Birmingham and its somewhere Jack loves to go. But I distinctively remember a staff member once informed us that the best one is the one in London, since then it's always been somewhere I've wanted to take Jack. He's amazed by the marine life

London Show. 
I'm not entirely sure if Jack would sit still for long enough but I would love to take him to one of the many shows. There are many family-friendly shoes available which include audience participation and are shorter than the regular performances.

ZSL London Zoo.
Ok, this may be more for me, but Jack and I love animals. I've never been to London Zoo and its somewhere I would love to experience with my children. There are over 800 species to discover there. There are also many interactive experiences available including Penguin Beach, Gorilla Kingdom and Rain forest Life. 

London Transport Museum.
Another fascination of Jack's is transport, especially trains but of any kind really. There are many different exhibits for visitors to view. The galleries are full of interactive exhibits for both young people and adults to play on - including real trains and buses, heaven for Jack.

London Eye.
What better way to view the sites of London then with a breathtaking 360-degree view. I've been on the London Eye once and it was an amazing experience and although I'm not sure what Jack is like with heights he seems a bit of a dare devil and I'm sure he would enjoy. 

Buckingham Palace.
One distinctive memory from my childhood is my Grandad taking me to watch the changing of the guards, I would love to take Jack to see this. Although its not an attraction as such, its an iconic thing to experience. 

If like us, you would be coming from afar then obviously a hotel stay is a must if your doing more than a day. There are various hotels around such as this Holiday Inn, located in Kensington Forum. It's located in the heart of London, its just a short walk from the tube station for convenient travel to various London attractions.
