At any given time of year, London has dozens of attractions that’ll appeal to a wide variety of tourists. But at Christmas time, the city becomes really special, with several notable sights worth seeing. A few of these will be of extra-special interest to those with children. If you’ve got children to entertain during a visit to London this Christmas, then be sure to read on; we’re about to run through a few of the best things to do in London with kids over the festive season.

Winter Wonderland

Every year, Hyde Park is transformed into a Winter Wonderland, featuring the world’s tallest mobile observation wheel, a comedy club, the city’s biggest Christmas Market, a raft of themed bars, rides and shops, and an ice rink. If you’re looking to experience the best of the festive season, you should consider it a must-visit.

London River Cruises

A river cruise is among the best ways to see the city’s major attractions. And this is especially so during winter, when Westminster and the famous Docklands are all lit up in glorious technicolour. London river cruises also tend to include festive foods and drinks, which you’ll be able to enjoy from the deck of your boat.

Kid’s Christmas Shows

Panto season provides a great excuse to take the entire family down to the theatre. These experiences combine novelty with tradition, and allow you to get a close-up glimpse of some famous faces. In London this Christmas, there are a range of shows available, among the most notable being Goldilocks and the Three Bears at the Palladium and Dick Wittington at Hackney Empire. The former stars Paul O’Grady and Matt Baker, while the latter features Tarinn Callender in the title role.

Snowy Hogwarts

Harry Potter is among the best loved franchises in British fiction – or in fiction full stop. Millions of us have read the books and seen the films. And, if you’re willing to travel a little further out of the city centre, you can experience the magic of the Harry Potter Studio Tour up-close. The ‘Hogwarts in the Snow’ season transforms the entire place, making it festively appropriate. You’ll get up close and personal not only with the great hall itself and all of the festive glamour, but you’ll even learn how filmmakers created snow that doesn’t melt for filming purposes. Interesting stuff!

    Great suggestions! I went to a pantomime with my 7 year-old daughter Claire, which was performed at her school by actors from ‘West End in Schools’. The name of the show was ‘Scroogical!’, an adaptation of Charles Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’ and we had a great time!
    Anyway, thanks for the suggestions, have a great day!
