Things to do in LONDON with kids

From the tiniest tykes to the taller teens, London (In Ontario, not England!) has something perfect for every kid to enjoy! There are over 200 parks (including the massive 140 hectare Springbank Park!), lots of arts and culture, LOTS of sports, and REALLY tasty foods to try!

Want a museum with a difference? How about the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame where you can see all the amazing people who have achieved amazing things while saving lives? OR perhaps the historic Eldon House which was built way back in 1834? Or maybe kids want something a bit more hands on, like the Children’s Museum where they can learn and have fun at the same time!

London has magical seasons at Fanshawe Pioneer Village with their hayrides and treats, Storybook Gardens with animals, rides and games, and those active kids will love places like East Park with go-karts and climbing – just some of the unique and fun family friendly attractions!

Did we mention snow? You bet you can even ski, with places like Boler Mountain!

Come on chaps – we’re off to London!
