Have the rainy days been getting you down? Here's a list of some of the best things to do in London all indoors! 


Harry Potter Studio and Harry’s Platform 9 ¾ 

For the potterheads among you, make a whole day of Harry Potter with the Harry Potter Studio and Platform 9 ¾. Go on one of the breathtaking tours, learn about the history of the incredible films. You can spend the whole day taking in all the sights, and when you get hungry, have something to eat or grab yourself a butterbeer at one of the many cafes and restaurants available. On your way back to the hotel, why not take a detour to Platform 9 ¾ for a final photo to finish off your magical day. 

Madame Tussauds 

Kids of all ages love to go and see the wax figures of all their favourite celebrities and famous people. Whether you like sports, music, marvel, the royals or anything else you can think of, you can meet and take your picture with your idols and favourite celebrities right up close! And with sweet treats, snacks and drinks kiosks throughout the venue, you won’t go hungry. What more could you want?

The National Science Museum

Allow yours and your kids imaginations to run free in the National Science Museum. Filled with a huge range of activities, talks, tours, or even 3D films, geared up for all age ranges. So whether your children are below 5, or they’re in their teens, there’s something to do for them all! And just to top it all off, it's free to go! 

The Natural History Museum 

Dive into the past with whales and dinosaurs as you learn about the history of our planet from all the way back to 4.6 billion years ago! Explore the exhibits, get involved in the activities or even listen to Sir David Attenborough as he gives you a guided audio tour of the museum. Refuel with hot or cold food and drink at one of the cafes and be sure to visit the gift shop on the way out!
