London is the perfect city to visit with kids of all ages, but teens especially are likely to fall in love with this European capital city. From the major attractions to shopping around the city, teens will never be bored.


Hop On Hop Off Tour of the City

The Hop On Hop Off Bus is very convenient for seeing London’s sights as it visits most major attractions. The Big Bus tour is offered as part of the London Explorer Pass.

British Museum

This houses some of the greatest artifacts in the Western World, from mummies to the Rosetta Stone to sculptures from the Parthenon.

Victoria and Albert Museum

If your teen is creative and loves photography, fashion, jewelry, or anything else related to the creative arts, this is one of the activities in London you won’t want to miss.

Tower of London

A must see in London with teens, the Tower of London dates to William the Conqueror in the mid 12th century. For over 900 years it has been used as a royal residence, treasury, and prison.

London Eye

The Coca-Cola London Eye takes you on a ride high above the London skyline. Lines can be long, so plan on going first thing in the morning or mid afternoon on a weekday if possible.

ArcelorMittal Orbit Slide

Located at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the Arcelor Mittal Orbit Slide is the craziest of all theme park rides. Guests can take a ride on the world’s longest tunnel slide in London.

The Sky Garden

Located at 20 Fenchurch (also known as the Walkie Talkie building), The SkyGarden offers some of the best views in London. At the top is a bar, gardens, and restaurants.

Trafalgar Square

Trafalgar Square is a fun place to people watch before or after a visit to the National Gallery. Our boys enjoyed climbing on the lions and insisted we take pictures.

Borough Market

Borough Market is a food market London locals enjoy as much as the tourists. There are countless produce stands, florists, and restaurants.

Hyde Park

Hyde Park is perfect for a stroll or bike ride, catching a bite at the bistro, renting boats on the lake, or feeding the ducks and geese.
