Some of the top spots for children and families in St John’s Wood are:

  • Oxygen Free Jumping – Located a short distance away, in Acton, this is the ideal spot for burning off some energy! With over 150 trampolines and climbing frames, children can run, jump, make friends, and basically have a great time, giving adults time to relax! There is also a restaurant on site, for refreshments and lunch.
  • London Zoo – Located in the Regents Park area, kids will love a day out at London Zoo, no matter what their age! With lions, tigers, apes, penguins, and everything else in-between, this is a historic zoo, which also teaches about the importance of looking after endangered species and conservation overall.
  • Paddington Bear Tour – This is a two and a half hour walking tour of London which will show you top sights in a Paddington Bear theme, with paw prints to follow. Not only do children get to see the major sights of London, but they’re getting exercise too and plenty of fresh air.
