Best London Attractions for Teens

Posted in Articles | by

London is a wonderful city that surely won’t disappoint. Sometimes traveling with a teenager can be challenging. Some things are too young and others we might find too mature for them. If your travels take you to Europe, namely London, England, you can rest assured that there are plenty of great things for them to enjoy. Here are some fun attractions in London for teens.

South Bank

This is a hub for all things fun! Located in the heart London, is so much to do and see in South Bank. There is shopping, museums, sightseeing, and lots more! Be careful, it’s hard not to get stuck here all day having fun, so plan accordingly. Amongst the attractions here is Namco Station, which has a bowling alley, an arcade as well as bumper cars. My family is competitive, so we pretty much get wrapped in any game. Your teen is sure have a ball!

The London Dungeon

Other attractions nearby, include the London Eye, Sealife London Aquarium, Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum, and for the brave at heart, there is The London Dungeon. Guided by professional actors, this is a very unique way to look into London’s “dark past.” South Bank Bonus: If you’re teen is anything like mine, they appreciate a good meal from time to time. Thankfully, there are several restaurants in this area, too!

Shopping

Have a teen that’s into the latest fashions? If so, there are tons of popular clothing stores around town, as well as boutiques, that are sure to please your teen, no matter the trend or style! The iconic Harrod’s department store is a popular attraction for most. I don’t think we even saw the entire store, because there’s so much of it to see. There are plenty of other spots that are sure to please, from high-end designer to trendy mainstream fashion. Piccadilly Circus and Covent Gardens are also two great areas that will bring a smile to even the hardest-to-please teenager’s face!

Sightseeing

Ahhh….yes, the world renowned double decker buses really do swarm the city with endless amounts of tourist as an incredibly easy way to see this amazing city! There isn’t a bad seat on these buses, and you and your teen will definitely leave knowing so much more about the locale. If you think your teen would like an alternative way to see some of the most historic landmarks that London has to offer, river cruises (one also located in the aforementioned South Bank) are a great way to see the city as well.

The London Eye

One other amazing way to see the city is to hop on the London Eye. This 30-minute ride is truly an ingenious way to see the city’s sights. Standing in a capsule of this gigantic Ferris wheel gives you a view of London that you will never forget!
