London Attractions Kids Will Love 

Lauren Mitcham, from the capital's must-see London Dungeon, knows quite a lot about renowned London attractions.

From striking aquariums to celebrity wax figures to giant ferris wheels, Lauren gives us a tour of London's tourist hotspots and attractions.

  • Fancy a ride in a ferris wheel? Why not take a spin on the best the UK has to offer! The London Eye is the largest cantilevered observation wheel in the world, standing at just over 135 meters. With phenomenal views of the city, this must-see London attraction now offers private packages.

  • With so many historical sights to see, visitors all too often overlook the Sea Life London Aquarium. Our advice? Don’t miss your chance to marvel at exotic and aquatic creatures from around the globe. Whether you spend the day in one of the augmented reality, four-dimensional sensory shows or just gazing at the exhibit’s clown fish, sea turtles, and sharks, this attraction is the perfect way to keep all ages entertained for hours.

  • #Selfie with replicas of your favorite celebrities at the renowned Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in Central London. While you’re making everyone jealous with your Instagram posts, don’t forget to try out their all-new Sherlock Holmes: The Experience, a walk-through adventure that allows guests to create their own unique Baker Street experience.

  • If your group loves immersive, walk-and-ride attractions, look no further than Shrek’s Adventure London. Here, visitors can interact with characters we have grown to love from Shrek and the “Kingdom of Far Far Away Land”. Don’t forget to stop by the meet and greet with the kids’ favorite DreamWorks pals in the interactive arrivals hall before you go!
