With the summer holidays in full swing now is the perfect time to plan a family trip to the bustling city of London. 

From robot zoos, museums or theatrical experiences and cycle tours, Caledonian Sleeper has picked out its top London events and attractions for every age group to enjoy.

Book two interconnecting rooms with our new family ticket and climb on board Caledonian Sleeper in Scotland to make the most of a family adventure in the big city. And kick start the journey of a night time with a free meal for kids under the age of 12 years when accompanied by an adult having a meal.

The Robot Zoo

For inquisitive children and their parents, the Robot Zoo at the Horniman Museum and Gardens offers the chance to learn more about the fascinating world of animals.  The family-friendly exhibition allows visitors to discover the mechanisms that give animals their amazing abilities by viewing and interacting with robots that have been recreated using a variety of machine parts and gadgets.

Find out how a host of miraculous species eat, hunt and hide before designing your own ‘mutant’ robot creature. 

Harry Potter Bus Tour

Hop on board a luxury bus for a whistle-stop muggle tour of Harry Potter themed sights in London.

Featuring some of the most memorable moments from the films, the three-hour tour offers visitors the chance to learn more about the magic of how the films were made as well as take pictures in fictional landmarks such as Platform 9 ¾ and Number 12, Grimmauld Place.

A perfect way to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the book, tours depart from Central London at 2pm. 

The Wind and the Willows

The Wind and the Willows has crash-landed in London’s West End to give visitors a musical performance based on the much-loved classic.

Showing at the Palladium, the musical features Rufus Hound as Mr Toad to tell the comical story through beautifully designed sets, costumes and choreography, as well as a gloriously British score.

Tick as many London landmarks off your list with Fat Tire Tours.  The company offers a range of tours suitable for all ages helping visitors to see some of the city’s most iconic sights such as the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, the London Eye and Tower Bridge.  Tours take place daily with bikes available for both adults and children alike.
