Once you are all settled into your London apartment, then you will probably want to get out and explore the city with your children.
London for Kids – Alton Towers
Although this attraction is not in London, it is still one of the most popular attractions in the United Kingdom and if you want to get away from the city for the day then this is the place to go. There are loads of attractions that are aimed at keeping kids of all ages entertained for hours. Alton Towers is one of the most visited attractions in London and the entire United Kingdom.

This 500-acre amusement park has rides and attractions that will elicit screams of delight and loads of fun for the whole family. Part of the Merlin Entertainment group, these people know how to deliver fun for everyone. Being British, you will also find a dollop of history while you are there. Alton Towers is situated on the grounds of the country home of the Earl of Shrewsbury, and the Towers are open to the public to admire the art collection and the historic home. Open from March to November, the theme park has over 29 rides that are divided among the themed entertainment areas. Catering for kids of all ages, they will be entertained and enthralled from the moment they step into this wonderland. If you want to make a holiday of it, you can stay at one of the hotels or spas that are found on the premises. In fact this might not be such a bad idea as you can’t get round all of the rides on one day and your kids will be begging you to come back so they can ‘ride the wave’ again and again.
