GO Kids & Families in North West London

Family Days Out in North West London In north west London there’s more for children to do than watch television and go to school, so why not take them out to enjoy the delights of north west London.

One attraction that’s sure to keep them entertained for a couple of hours is the waxwork figures at Madame Tussauds [map]. The exhibition has been around in some form or another since the 1800’s and has been steadily evolving into the gallery of stars and celebrities it is renowned for today. There’s also the Spirit of London [map] and the Chamber of Horrors [map] exhibition, which combined should be just gruesome and educational enough to keep the kids entertained.

There’s also the London Planetarium [map] which is a lot less than a stone’s throw away. Here there are plenty of displays and exhibits to fascinate young minds.

For something a little less mainstream you could take them to the Centre for the Magic Arts [map] on Stephenson Way, where they learn about magic as a craft and in the summer enjoy a magic show or two.

If looking at animals is the best way to keep your children occupied, then there’s the Kentish Town City Farm [map] and London Zoo [map] in the area. At the Kentish City Farm kids can learn about sheep, goats, pigs, poultry and cows by taking part in some of the tours and activities. And with programmes like The Pony Club and Young Riders, kids who might not otherwise be able to learn to ride a horse could have access to discount lessons.

Meanwhile at London Zoo [map] there’s always plenty to see and do for kids. At weekends and during school holidays there is a programme of talks and displays aimed at young people, including the feeding of the penguins and an introduction to the kangaroos.

A little further afield in Wembley there’s the Fantasy Island [map] a multi-levelled play centre where kids can climb and slide and run around until they are all played out. There’s also a dedicated play area where under fives can do the same.

Some time before bedtime, you may want to take a break to eat and in North west London you do not have to resort to high street hamburgers. There are a number of restaurants in the area that welcome kids as part of their clientele. Both The Engineer [map] in Primrose Hill and Hampstead’s Giraffe [map] have international cuisine on offer for adults and a kids menu too, so all the family can dine happy.
