London is probably the best city in the world in terms of activities for families and children including lots of free activities and events. We list here lots of initiatives that we believe London Mums and their children from babies to teenagers would enjoy especially at the most entertaining places such as the Science Museum, The V&A, Kew Gardens, Kensington Palace, Hyde Park, Richmond Park, Greenwich, West End shows, the London Eye, the London Aquarium, Kingston upon Thames, Chelsea, SouthBank and so much more.

London Eye

On a sunny day there’s no better attraction in London than the EDF Energy London Eye. My family and I have experienced it at its best having chose the Champagne package. Not only they serve you quality champagne in the capsule but you jump the queues. Ideal with kids to learn about London too! Especially on Halloween when they run special events such as the Witch Academy and you can enjoy a spook-tecular Halloween Storytelling Experience!

The London Eye offers magnificent views of the capital in beautiful (and clean) glass capsules. The Eye travels so slow that you do not feel it moving and it takes approximately 30 minutes to go all the way around. It feels much quicker though as time flies while you are watching one of the most spectacular views of any world capitals.

It is definitely worth booking the champagne experience if you have children. It’s a much easier and relaxing experience overall.

Children under 4 go free but do require a ticket.

Children aged under 16 years must be accompanied by an adult aged 18+ years.

Any children on a Champagne Experience will be served fruit juice instead of alcohol.

Buggies and pushchairs must be folded completely flat and all items removed before taking them on board the London Eye and when waiting on the boarding ramps.

Facilities are available inside the ticket office for buggies which are fixed and can not be folded down.

Baby changing facilities are available in our ticket office and onboard the London Eye River Cruise Experience.

Pregnant women are welcome to travel on the London Eye. This would, however, be at their own discretion. There is a seat in the centre of the capsule. It’s recommended visiting during off peak times to avoid large crowds.

Please be aware that you may be required to queue for up to 30 minutes (if not booked on the Champagne experience) and there are no toilet facilities during the 30 minute experience.

Did you know?
A view fit for a Queen – You can see around 40km from the top as far as Windsor Castle on a clear day.
