Sightseeing In London With Hilton London Canary Wharf

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.

Family Rooms at Hilton London Canary Wharf

We found the Hilton London Canary Wharf and it sounds perfect for the family weekend we have in mind.  If you book a family room at the Hilton London Canary Wharf all this is included:

  • Kids 10 years and under will enjoy free meals and drinks during the stay
  • Complimentary WiFi access for the family
  • Access to children’s TV channels
  • An on demand movie voucher and complimentary popcorn delivered to your room
  • Complimentary cots and highchairs are available on request

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:

Buckingham Palace

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.

Tower Bridge

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.

Mudchute Farm

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!

Staying in London Without Children

Hilton London Canary Wharf is a great place to stay in London if you want to enjoy a child free weekend too. Not only do you have these great attractions within easy reach but you also have excellent shopping and restaurants on your doorstep.  Weekend breaks are available throughout Easter £144 per room per night, including breakfast, for double occupancy.  Is it time you booked your city break yet?

    Hi
    I am new in here… I found your blog when I was looking for family vacation ideas. Your blog is really practical and I like that very much. Regarding the recent post, is there any other place to stay in Canary Wharf other than Hilton…a bit cheaper than it? I am a foreigner who lives in U.K…I always find it difficult to find proper family accommodation. so could you please point me in the right direction how to look for it
    Thanks

    I’m usually more of a countryside girl, but every now and again a trip to the city is nice. There’s so much to see and do!

    I would love to have a mini break in London, it has been far too long since I had a wander in the city.
    Hilton Canary Wharf looks fab, and seems really good value. I like the deal with children under ten, always very welcome. Also a great location, with ease to get about.

  6. Canary Wharf is lovely, I like your little bucket list. The Tower of London is somewhere I have been meaning to go for a while x

    Some brilliant ideas; I’d love to see the Tower of London! I’ve never stayed in a Hilton, it’s great to know it’s so versatile and the interior looks lovely.

  14. Sarah Flint says:

    I enjoy sightseeing in London and have seen the Tower and Palace before.

  15. Ah some great sightseeing tips! You’re making me want a trip down – it’s been AGES since I was in London. I absolutely love Greenwich, and could spend all day there – mooching round the market and sitting out by the Cutty Sark. Also, who doesn’t love a trip on the DLR? It’s like a poor man’s rollercoaster. I love it!

    I enjoyed our last visit to London and have visited all the places you’ve mentioned except for the last two. And oh, I loved the parks too. Sharing with you my visit to Buckingham Palace – I hope I got my facts right!!!

    When I stayed here I went to the subway around the corner. I also noticed some other nice places to eat around canary wharf itself. Such a great location for a hotel.
