London is not short of great theme parks, with a wide variety of fantastic venues right on your doorstep while staying in the city. Offering plenty to see and do within easy reach of your hotel, the following selection should help you plan a fun-filled adventure on your next trip!
During your next stay at the Montcalm London, a visit to the London Dungeon provides a chilling journey into ancient London. Guiding visitors through almost 1000 years of events from London’s past, the dungeon includes everything from recreations of medieval torture chambers to opportunities for learning more about Jack the Ripper.
The venue includes two rides, great special events and a host of talented actors performing key scenes from the more gruesome side of the city. Here you can discover what it would have been like to attend a Victorian séance, or enjoy ‘The Tyrant’ boat ride with a medieval King. A trip can be completed within about 90 minutes, leaving you plenty of time to try out some more of the theme parks from the list!
Westfield’s KidZania has created a child-size city for younger visitors staying with us at our Mayfair hotels in London to enjoy, and it includes a wide range of different activities as well as a space for parents to relax and unwind while the kids play.
