Best family days out in London

It can be difficult to think of days out in London that the whole family will enjoy. With the colder months approaching, outdoor activities start to become more difficult. So, we’ve thought of some ideas for fun days out for all the family, which are possible whatever the weather.

Madame Tussauds

Arguably one of London’s top tourist attractions, Madame Tussauds is a celebrity waxwork experience full of interactive enjoyment for visitors. With an abundance of music stars, actors, the royals and historical figures, there will be a celebrity everyone is keen to see. Sing on the X-factor stage, have a picture with the Queen or take a ride on the space experience.


London is home to a wide range of theatre shows; Thriller! Live, Wicked, and Matilda to name a few. Shows are often discounted last minute, so it’s always worth asking. Pantomimes like Peter Pan, Jack and the Beanstalk and Cinderella always pop up in the heart of London in the run up to Christmas, perfect to get all the family in the festive spirit. 

Sealife Aquarium

With 600 different species of marine life, the Sealife Aquarium holds 17 different themed zones. It will take you on a tour of different deep-sea life, with something fascinating for any age. Stand above the sharks, be face to face with crocodiles, and walk beneath turtles - this is truly an experience. 

The London Dungeon

The London Dungeon is a must-do activity in London. Though fitting with Halloween, it is a fun (and scary!) family day out at any time of year. A thrilling attraction, the London Dungeon draws you into a world of horror and gore, surprising you at every corner. If your family loves an adrenaline rush, the London Dungeon is for you. 

Tate Modern

Situated on the bank of the River Thames, the Tate Modern is a national museum full of interesting, contemporary and modern pieces of art. The Tate Modern is actually free, so it’s a great budget-friendly way of keeping the whole family entertained. 


Located on London’s Southbank, the BFI IMAX is the largest cinema screen in Britain. Measuring 26 by 20 metres, it’s truly a different cinema experience. The IMAX is perfect for those rainy days.

Warner Bros. Studio Tour

Every member of the family loves Harry Potter, so why not check out the behind-the-scenes studio tour. The unique experience takes you through the Harry Potter sets and gives you an exclusive look at the costumes and props.
