School’s finished for the Summer! Which means you are probably waiting to jet off to the sun and sea with the kids (or just arrived home). To help the family have a better Summer whilst in London take a look at the range of kid friendly activities that are closer to you than you think.

This is our list of enjoyable things to do this Summer, which don’t involve you having to travel far:

Have you ever thought about releasing your inner daredevil? Set in an iconic London spot in Alexandra Palace, this is the newest addition to the Go Ape family with all the familiar favourites like ladders, walkways, bridges, tunnels and a Zig Zag Bridge. For tiny chimps over 1m tall, Tree Top Junior is a chance to explore the canopy and experience all the thrills and spills the great apes can. That includes the 43m zip wire grand finale!

Why not visit a farm without leaving the city? Kentish Town City Farm is a community charity that helps city people connect with animals, nature and the environment. The farm is situated on a four-acre site, alongside two railway lines in the inner London Borough of Camden. We have sheep, goats, ducks, chickens, geese, three horses, two donkeys, a pig and a cow. There are animal pasture areas, community gardens and a wildlife pond, plus a riding arena.
