Featured Cities - UK with Kids
London is one of our favourite cities to visit with kids. Most families stick close to the centre, but you don't have to go far by the tube or train to find more unique, epic, amazing SUPER DOOPER FUN things for kids and families.
One of our favourites is Stratford - it's home to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, home of TWO amazing playgrounds, a pocket of sideshow-alley style rides, a GIANT Westfield shopping centre, and the best place for kids in London - Discover, Children's Story Centre. (Don't miss it!)
Buckingham Palace, Kensington Gardens, and Covent Garden are wonderful to look at, but the hoards of tourists make it less appealing for kids. Our tip is to dig a little deeper and save your precious time for those less touristy, but just as amazing, spots. London has plenty!
If you are visiting London, there's a good chance that someday you'll want to take advantage of London's close proximity to two of the world's greatest cities - Paris and Rome.
We've started to gather some of our favourite kid-friendly places to visit in Paris and Rome. Take a peek!
