With the summer holiday just around the corner and finding nothing to do without breaking the bank and you will be honestly surprised what is actually in London to enjoy and explore so I wanted to share some fun things that you can do in our capital city that you might enjoy doing with your children and you can find many top deals on London attractions with Groupon!

The Science Museum

One of my favorite memories of visiting London is exploring this wonderful museum, in South Kensington, Founded in 1857 and I think me and my family have visited the place so many times, I have plans to take my children there at some point, the excitement of running up to find the amazing glass bridge which I remember being told was ‘musical’ when in fact it was a marvel of engineering, a glass bridge that was supported with steel wires!

The Natural History Museum

If you are a fan of dinosaurs and the history of our natural world then this is the place to head to, I also have some wonderful fond memories of walking into the big hall and seeing Dippy the Diplodocus (Who is currently on tour around the UK), walking into the Darwin exhibitions and seeing evolution right before your eyes, my absolute love of dinosaurs and planet earth comes from this wonderful place.

Madam Tussaud’s

You cannot go into London without going to one of the biggest attractions, meet famous celebrities and heads of states.. well their wax figures I mean, the last time I went they had this fun area full of histories serial killers which was housed in this dark maze with many actors making people jump, it was absolutely amazing if a little scary.

Tate Modern

One of the most amazing art galleries you can find, with famous modern works of art some of which you might recognize and others you have never heard of, one of the big things about the Tate Modern is their giant exhibition area which has often been in the news with different and often interactive works namely a giant slide or complete darkness, if you can manage to go when one of these are showing then you are lucky to experience it.

Hyde Park

If you don’t mind a bit of a walk, up the Mall past the Queens residence is the beautiful Hyde Park with paddle boats and of course the wonderful Diana Memorial which you can dip you tired feet in during a hot day, Hyde Park isn’t to far from the first two attractions that I mentioned so are wonderful if you want to go and eat some lunch and take time out in this rare piece of green surrounded by the city.

London –

I used to love going into London, with friends or with family, There is always something so magical about the big city not to far from my home town..

The weekend trips I took with friends to do typical touristy things, such as visit the London Dungeons or go to the London Eye.. Those days had me in stitches of laughter and its sad now that for some unknown reason I developed a fear of trains, which it turns out is more of a fear of tracks than trains themselves.

London has always fascinated me, I love the history of the city, I have a memory from school sitting in a history lesson looking up in awe of London’s ‘first’ serial killer Jack the Ripper and just wanting to learn more.

London is a huge multicultural city, always busy, always full of life and it always amazes me at how unique our capital is, if you sit and watch the London 2012 opening and closing ceremonies and you see all these people, of all different faiths standing proud and together and that’s what London means to me.
