Prepare for your day
London is one of the biggest and busiest cities in the UK which can be quite a daunting concept when you’re visiting with young children. That’s why it’s important to plan your day ahead of time so you can reduce stress and focus entirely on having fun and staying safe. Create an itinerary packed with fun things to do so you can make the most of your time. There are also a number of apps you can get which will help you find your way around the city and discover new things to see.
Look for free attractions
A family trip to London can often get quite expensive, especially if you have a lot of children who all want to do different things. Fortunately, London is home to a number of great attractions and experiences that don’t cost a penny. A large number of the city’s museums and galleries don’t charge an entry fee, including the Natural History Museum and Science Museum. That means you and the kids can experience the magic of London without having to break the bank.
Visit the Barbican
During your stay at our London City suites Montcalm Brewery, you’ll be right around the corner from the famous Barbican Centre. As a pillar of the artistic community, the venue is known for showcasing some of the best talents from around the world. The Barbican events calendar is always packed full of fun events such as music gigs, dramatic performances and art exhibitions. The centre also runs a family treasure hunt so be sure to check that out.
Explore the Museum of London
Also within a quick walking distance of the Montcalm Brewery, you’ll find the Museum of London. The historic institution serves as a time capsule to showcase the long and rich history of London. As you and the kids explore the halls, you’ll come across interactive exhibits and hundreds of unique items. Follow the timeline of the city from the ancient Romans to modern day Londoners.
Spend a day at the park
London is full of beautiful open green spaces where you can spend the day relaxing while the kids run around. As the weather begins to warm up, places like Hyde Park and Richmond Park are perfect for spending an afternoon without spending a lot of money. Pack up a picnic, grab a football and find a spot on the grass to experience the beauty of London.
