Hamleys - The Toy Store

It is much more than a place to go to buy toys in London. It is a continuous animation. Hamley’s vendors teach you with live demos, the latest market news and some exclusive toys for sale at this beautiful store. Do you want to have a fun time going through all their plants dedicated to the world of toys? Well Hampeys will be the perfect option. The best of this store? The last floor dedicated to Legos. If you are a fan of this game, neither the Queen of England nor the rest of the British royal family is spared here. Everyone here has their counterpart in Lego pieces.

Ride a double-decker bus

I don't know any kid who doesn't love getting on the top of the bus in London. If you are lucky, maybe you can even sit in the first seats where you will have the best views of the city.

Visit the Diagon Alley of Harry Potter - Leadenhall Market

It is not very big and its main attraction is the facades of the different stores that J.K. Rowling used for her famous "Diagon Alley" from Harry Potter. Do you remember the first movie? And the Leaky Cauldron? Head over there and you will discover many references to the movies.

Have a picnic in Hyde Park

London is well known for its parks. In fact, some, like Hyde Park, are so big that they house lakes inside. In spring and summer it is very common to see families enjoying the outdoors and even eating in some of its many picnic areas. We recommend you stop at Harrods on Brompton Road and buy a sandwich take away and enjoy sitting on the grass under the shade of a tree.

Buy candy at the best candy store in England

This store is spread across several places in the country, including London, Salisbury, Windsor, Oxford or Canterbury among others. Others say it inspired J.K. Rowlling when she described the universe of enchanted knickknacks from her books.

Get your feet wet at the Diana of Wales Memorial

It is a beautiful way to pay tribute to the princess of the town. Diana of Wales keeps her memory intact in this circular fountain located in Hyde Park. In summer, it is very common to see children bathing. Even though it’s never too hot, your kids won’t resist sticking their feet in the frozen water.

Spend a night at the museum like Ben Stiller?

Yes, it is possible to do it in the beautiful and always recommended Natural History Museum in London. Since the movie Night at the Museum came out, the one in London has been clear. They started a few years ago offering the activity in a pajama party for children but the demand has been so great that in the end they have succumbed and now they offer the activity also to adults.
