If you are looking to have a weekend adventure with the children, then where better to explore, than the city of London? Whether you want to visit the tourist hotspots, immerse yourself in history at a museum, or venture out to one of the beautiful parks, London has it all- and at a much cheaper price than you might originally think!
When travelling with children, you might want to consider utilising the fabulous public transport links within London. Upto three children can travel for free when accompanied by one adult who has purchased a full price ticket on the London Underground and trains, and paying for travel tickets is made simple by using a travel Oyster card. You simply top it up and tap it on the contactless plates at stations and on buses for maximum convenience on the go. If you’re staying at the Park grand Paddington court, then you’ll be ideally located to explore he city by road or underground rail. The children will love the adventurous freedom that the city’s famous red buses offer, and it gives you a day off from driving through heavy traffic too- bonus!
In order to get the best possible travel deals, and to maximise your family’s travel budget, be sure to check out accommodation prices before you book your hotel. There are great deals to be had on accommodation Paddington London in particular will be conveniently central to many of London’s most popular attractions. There’s so much to keep the kids occupied. Including shrek’s big adventure, the London eye experience, madam Tussaud’s and so much more besides.
For many families, dining out eats up a huge percentage of their travel budget, so to make yours go further follow these tips: nature you and the kids make the most of any free breakfast deals that are offered at your hotel- eating a big breakfast should keep little ones full until lunch time avoiding the purchase of unnecessary snacks. That way you can eat a light lunch such as sandwiches and eat a sumptuous evening meal at The grand restaurant, for example. This elegant setting will feel like a real treat to the children and adults alike.
Of course, no family trip is complete without some time at the park, and where better to head than London’s biggest park? Hyde park is popular amongst families for many reasons, not least because of the Peter Pan themed play park. Children will adore running wild and free amongst Wigwams and swings, and adults will love that they are having fun without the use of screens! The park also has a beautiful memorial fountain that children are welcome to splash in, if the weather is warm enough!
Wherever you decide to head when on your family mini break, London will provide you with cherished family memories that will last a lifetime.
