Summer adventures for families in London

Looking for things to do with the kids in London this summer? Whether you’re planning your staycation or a grand day out, our places offer countless ways to spend your time that won’t break the bank. There are lawn games and nature trails at Ham House and Garden in Richmond. You can take to two-wheels and tackle the new cycle trails at Osterley Park and House or get wild in the wetlands of Morden Hall Park. When you stop by with the family this summer, you help us look after our places all year round.
