Top 6 Child Friendly Activities in London!

We were super excited to welcome a brand new member to our Trunki family earlier this month, little Boris the London Bus

Boris is a true British gent who just loves to travel. He also comes with a free animal sticker pack, so you can bring a whole menagerie of cute little passengers along for the ride.

Boris and his pals have been itching to hit the road and do a bit of sight seeing around London, so we had a quick chat with the lovely folk at Days Out With Kids to get their advice on some cool ideas for family outings in London. Here’s what they recommended…

Pattern Pod, Science Museum…

Inside the Science Museum you will find the Pattern Pod an area that’s especially for 5 – 8 year olds and their parents. There are lots of hands-on exhibits to bring out your child inner scientist as they have to try and predict events that are happening around them. Learning is encouraged through play and exploration and there’s even stuff that adults can enjoy.

The children will love this outdoor adventure playground which was built in memorial to the late Diana Princess of Wales and was inspired by the stories of Peter Pan. The centrepiece is a magnificent and fun wooden pirate ship. There’s also a sensory trail, teepees, a beach around the ship and a selection of sculptures and toys to keep the children occupied.
