While children play at being grown-ups at KidZania London, parents keep an eye on their kids from the viewing windows, hang out in the adults-only rooms, and relax at the onsite eateries. Across the indoor city, imagination is encouraged as kids explore independently and "work" to earn kidZos (money), which can be spent on different games, gifts, and activities. Buy admission tickets in advance to guarantee entry and save time on the day.

KidZania London is the only attraction of its kind in the country, but London has plenty more to offer families with children. Hang out at one of the city’s many green spaces, such as Hyde Park, marvel at the animals in London Zoo or the London Aquarium, and shop for toys at Hamleys. And don’t forget to pose like Harry Potter at Platform 9 and ¾ in King’s Cross Station.
