London is a city that draws millions of tourists every year, from every corner of the globe. It’s a place with something to offer to just about everyone, and getting there is easy thanks to the availability of cheap trains to London. But there are several attractions in particular that families might investigate. You’ll undoubtedly struggle to cram everything into a single break – and so prioritising is essential. 

Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter

Harry Potter is among the most popular series of novels of all time, beloved by children and adults alike. For fans of the film adaptations, the Warner Bros. Studio Tour should be considered essential. 

It’s to be found in Leavesdon, just outside the city. There are seasonal events operating throughout the year, and so even if you’ve been before, you’ll get something out of the experience. 

Madame Tussauds London

The London branch of Madam Tussauds is among the world’s most famous waxwork museums. There are lifelike effigies of all manner of celebrities, fictional characters and historical figures to explore. Find it on Baker Street.

SEA LIFE London Aquarium 

This aquarium contains an incredible five hundred species, spread across fourteen distinct zones. Of particular note is the ‘Ocean Invaders’ experience, which is the largest jellyfish experience in the country.

This is an interactive walk-through experience, based around the Shrek films. You’ll get more than ten different live shows, a flying bus experience, and the chance to interact with characters like Donkey, Fiona, and Shrek himself. Find it on the Thames, just next to the Sea Life Aquarium.

This museum covers around two centuries of engineering history, and puts on amazing tours of the London Underground as part of the ‘Hidden London’ series. Find out what’s on before you visit, and book an experience at a convenient station.
