Off The Wall Things To Do With Your Kids In London


London is a city that suits all ages.

The endless list of activities, attractions, cultural events and downright amazing things is pretty incredible- in fact, it seems to be never ending.

If you’re looking to take the whole family away for a trip to London, don’t worry about the ages of your kids; there’s plenty for them to see and do.

Book a room for the family in the stunning Park Grand London Hyde Park Hotel to make your stay extra special, you can relax in luxury after an incredible day and you’ll get to enjoy one of the best restaurants in Hyde Park.

Now here is a quick rundown of some of the stunning things you can do with the kids during your stay in ‘the big smoke’.

Harry Potter Warner Bros. Studio Tour

This is without a doubt, one of the very best studio tours in the world.

The entire collection of amazing Harry Potter films were shot in London- with the obvious exception of the clearly Scottish Hogwarts scenery.

The Warner Bros. Studio is no longer a working studio; instead it’s a glorious museum packed to the rafters with all things Potter.

You can walk the flagstones of the Great Hall, visit the cosy and comfortable Gryffindor Common Room, experience the stunning detail of Dumbledore’s office and explore the actual Hogwarts express.

It’s a truly magical behind the scenes insight into the groundbreaking Potter films.

Thames Rockets

Have ever looked at the Thames and thought “I’d like to explore that by Rocket Boat”? Don’t worry, we all have- and now you can.

Climb aboard an actual rocket boat, and go for a high speed, adrenaline fuelled rip along the River Thames.

Not only will you get to see some of the city’s most iconic sights, you’ll also get to do doughnuts, spins, high speed turns and maybe even catch some air.

Between the incredible action, your knowledgeable captain will fill you in on the landmarks you can see from the river, like St. Paul’s, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben.

ArcelorMittal Orbit

Some of you may remember that giant red tower from the 2012 Olympics.

Well that is actually the UK’s tallest sculpture and the home of the world’s longest tube slide- yes, you did read that right.

Reach speeds of 30 miles per hour as you zoom through the tunnel from a height of 376 feet!

If you or the kids are feeling particularly adventurous, you can also abseil from the top of the tower- but it’s not for the faint of heart!

The tower can be found in the heart of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park which is easily reached from your Hyde Park hotel London, by simply hopping on the Elizabeth Line.

Vintage Bike Tour of the City

If you’re trying to get your kids to enjoy the outdoors, then there are few things better than cycling around London and seeing the sights.

This tour will take you through bike friendly pathways and areas that allow you and the kids to enjoy some of London’s most famous buildings and landmarks.

Your tour guide will give all the facts and history of what you're seeing, and you’ll get to ride an amazing vintage bike- what could be better?
