My husband and I have been talking about where to stay in London with the kids for a while now. We want to take them both on a sightseeing tour as we know they will both enjoying seeing the what the city has to offer. Princess loves to visit London, but we always have an event to attend and very limited time actually exploring. We have been looking for a hotel close to the popular tourist attractions that the kids will enjoy staying in, and will be comfortable for us parents too.

When you are planning a busy weekend break with children, having a family friendly hotel that provides these additional benefits is crucial. After a busy day exploring London, we will need time to relax together in comfort. The family rooms are a great size at the Hilton and provide everyone with the space and facilities they need. The children’s menu is great as well, with some perfect child friendly choices including pizzas, lasagne, hot chocolate pudding and ice cream.
Perfect For Access To London’s Famous Attractions
Canary Wharf provides perfect access to the attractions that we are all keen to see as a family. My daughters are already planning their London itinerary, and the first thing that was mentioned was lots of trips on the London Underground. Kids love transport don’t they! These are the places we will be travelling too within easy reach of Hilton London Canary Wharf:
Going to Buckingham Palace is at the top of the list. I don’t think I have been since I was a child, so being able to share it with my daughters will be incredibly special. Buckingham Palace has regular family events, and summer opening for tourists.
Tower of London
Continuing the theme of visiting historic Royal Palaces, the Tower of London would be next on our list. Seeing the Crown Jewels first hand will be mind blowing for my little princesses, and they will love the activity trails and multimedia guides when it comes to learning all about their history.
Another favourite of my children’s is bridges, and what better than a visit to London’s iconic Tower Bridge to inspire their imaginations. We we all love exploring the Victorian engine rooms and I’ll be interested to see who is brave enough to walk across the glass floor.
The Cutty Sark
A trip to Greenwich to step on board the Cutty Sark and enjoy the many interactive activities the visitor’s centre has to offer will make for some great family memories for this trip.
Just when a bit of contrast is needed for our weekend break to London, the children will be able to relax and explore in London’s largest city farm, just a stones throw away from the Hilton London Canary Wharf. What’s even better about the attraction, is it’s completely free!

Not only do you have these great attractions within easy reach but you also have excellent shopping and restaurants on your doorstep.
