CANVAS & STONE FAMILY LONDON TOURS
At Canvas & Stone Tours we know how exciting it is to travel with kids, to show them the sights for the first time and to see things through their eyes.
We also know that it’s important to take things at their pace and not to overload their small feet or impressionable minds, rather we’re here to make the day a smooth and enjoyable one, with plenty of stops for hot chocolate!!
London is great for kids. With masses to do and so much to see there is no way that they’ll get bored any time soon, in fact we hope to plant the seed of enquiry that will make them want to come back time and time again.
Whether you have teens, toddlers or multi-generational groups Canvas & Stone’s Family London Tours take the hassle out of your travel, from Legoland to the Natural History Museum, there’s more than enough to keep all the family happy and to keep them enthralled through cultural trips or magical adventures.
You can combine any of the other tours on our pages to make a great family day out.
A FEW IDEAS FOR FAMILY LONDON TOURS…
The Natural History Museum & Science Museum
Kids love these museums, which are great places to discover the naturalist in you as well as educate and inspire. Adjacent to each other you can explore everything the natural world has to offer from dinosaurs to earthquakes via the cloud making machine!
Tower of London
This is a bone-fide castle right in the heart of London. With more history than you can shake a stick at, amazing displays of armour for the knights in the party and the Queen’s Crown Jewels for the Princesses amongst the crowd.
Canvas & Stone Family London Tours are right up to date with the latest teen trends. Why not thrill them with a Street Art Tour or a creepy Jack The Ripper East End Tour or even a Harry Potter tour…never fails to impress.
Rib Ride on the Thames
If its teens or Bond enthusiasts that are the driving force then a ride in a speed boat on the Thames to Bond theme tunes is the ticket! Combine it with the London Eye for a truly panoramic experience.
Cabinet War Rooms
This is the perfect place for budding historians. It’s an almost immersive experience as you get underground into the room where Winston Churchill held 115 Cabinet War meetings.
From M&M World to a private opening of Hamleys Toy Store or a nose around Harrods Food Hall. We never underestimate the shopping power of kids. Let us organise some serious retail time for the family.
Princess Diana Memorial Playground
If the kids need to let off a bit of steam, this is a great place to do so. It was erected in memory of the late Princess Diana in honour of her eternal love of children and adventure. Complete with a climbable pirate ship, tunnels, swings and an enormous sand pit, this is perfect for little ones to romp about whilst parents grab a coffee. Set right in the heart of Kensington Gardens, on the edge of Hyde Park it can easily be combined with a trip to any of the nearby museums or Kensington Palace.
A FEW IDEAS FOR FURTHER AFIELD…
Canvas and Stone Family London Tours also provide day tours on the outskirts of the Capital. Listed below are some of the family favourites. Other popular destinations for young people and families include Harry Potter World, Legoland, Osterley House and many more…..
This is the perfect place to play prince or princess for a day. The Dolls House built for Queen Mary in the 1920s is spectacular. Dubbed ‘the most beautiful dolls house in the world’, it was designed as a miniature palace with fully plumbed bathrooms and an exceptional wine cellar!
Hampton Court Palace
As well as the magnificent kitchens fully stocked as if to serve a banquet for 600 at the court of Henry VIII, the maze is a must see. Planted in the 1680s is has delighted visitors to the palace ever since.
Regents Park Canal and Zoo
No child is ever disappointed by a trip to the Zoo and Regents Park Zoo is no exception. Nestled in the heart of this beautiful Royal Park there are more than enough lions, giraffes and llamas as well as insects and reptiles galore.
If you'd like to beat the crowds, we can arrange private tours to a number of these sites.
We had an absolutely wonderful time exploring and learning about London with you. It was an amazing experience for the girls and us too! We will surely be in touch should we find ourselves in need of guidance and will pass along our highest recommendations to friends who visit London.
