Things to Do in London During the Summer Holidays

You might choose to visit an aquarium where children can explore the animals of the ocean, such as sharks, turtles, jellyfish, clownfish, and starfish, and learn about different species, or you may decide to visit a museum or art gallery and have a picnic in the park after!

You may choose a walking tour of London, or you may go for a more immersive experience by booking the famous Jack the Ripper Tour – voted number 1 by TripAdvisor.

Jack the Ripper Tour London

A great option for children of all ages is the Jack the Ripper Tour London:

The Jack the Ripper Tour in London is a great summer day-out activity for kids of all ages! Jack the Ripper was one of London’s worst criminals, and the case has still not been solved.
