London for Families
The Savoy’s central location gives prime access to London’s most exciting activities. From local museums and theatres and to landmark destinations, there are exhibitions and experiences to suit the entire family, whether this be excitable children, surly, hard to please teenagers or overly-enthusiastic parents. Here is The Savoy’s top pick of attractions.
West End Entertainment
Often described as one of the greatest theatre districts in the world, London’s West End hosts an incredible selection of musicals, plays and operas including reimagined childhood classics such as Cinderella, Matilda or fan favourite Frozen the Musical. Older children may prefer the action packed adventure of Back to the Future or the stunning visual effects in Life of PI.
Keen Harry Potter fans should consider visiting The Harry Potter Photographic Exhibition in Covent Garden. Housing hundreds of film props, archives and photographs, as well as its own Butterbeer Bar, visitors finish their day at the special effects photography station, documenting their first flight through London.
For hard to please teenagers, who may roll their eyes at most attractions and crave alternative experiences, Leake Street Arches boasts London’s longest legal wall of graffiti, representing local artists from all over the city, as well as a collection of quirky restaurants nestled within the tunnels beneath Waterloo. Teenagers and children alike may covet an experience at House of Vans, a pop up indoor Skate Park launched by the infamous shoe brand, providing an exhilarating outlet for young skaters, and even transforming once a month into an eclectic community craft market.
Get into the Easter spirit at prominent chocolatier Le Jeune’s children’s egg decorating workshop, offering families a glimpse into how Easter eggs are created, before customising their egg and filling it with a selection of their signature chocolates.
Families seeking an active afternoon following their Easter indulgencies are welcome to participate in Regents Park’s annual ‘Family friendly Adult Fun Run and Children’s Race’ or explore the city’s landmarks by bike with Santander’s city bikes right outside the hotel’s river entrance.
