Family fun on a Little Londoners package

London is a great city to visit with family as there is so much to do, whether you’re travelling with very little ones or teenagers, or both.  But what’s really important, I find, is to make sure you’re centrally located to make the most of all that the capital has to offer. The Trafalgar St. James Hotel offers just that. Situated at the south-western corner of Trafalgar Square, this Curio Collection hotel from Hilton is perfectly situated for visiting some of London’s most famous landmarks, many of which are within easy walking distance. And what’s more, the hotel is offering a ‘Little Londoners’ package. This family friendly package includes a bespoke Little Londoners map highlighting some of the key attractions that are on the doorstep of the hotel and are sure to keep children entertained and enthralled by their surroundings for the duration of their stay. Among them are a number of firm favourites, including: Trafalgar Square – a 2-minute walk from the hotel The National Gallery – a 3-minute walk from the hotel St. James’s Park – a 5-minute walk from the hotel London Transport Museum – an 11-minute walk from the hotel Big Ben – a 12-minute walk from the hotel London Eye – a 14-minute walk from the hotel London Aquarium – a 16-minute walk from the hotel And, even with so many attractions not even requiring you to take the Tube, children who visit three or more of the key London attractions featured on the map are rewarded with a cookie and a mocktail in the hotel’s destination restaurant, The Trafalgar Dining Rooms. On the reverse of the map is a checklist, maze, wordsearch and a number of opportunities for children to show their creative side, perhaps also enabling an opportunity for you to enjoy a drink on The Rooftop overlooking Trafalgar Square. So, if you’re heading to London with little ones any time soon, look no further. As well as a stay in one of the hotel’s spacious St. James Family Rooms, the Little Londoners package includes a delicious breakfast and dinner at The Trafalgar Dining Rooms, where guests can enjoy either the pre- or post-theatre menu. And what’s more, you’ll be in one of the most central locations enjoyed by any luxury London hotel. This post is sponsored by The Trafalgar St. James Hotel.

  1. My cousin lives way up North and her children never went to London until they were teenagers, too be honest they never went to Edinburgh either. With a Little Londoners’ package she would have had no excuses. I think it’s important to see the sights of London and “do” the big museums. It is a part of their heritage. I often told my cousin that she was putting her children at a disadvantage at school. They learn more when they see, hear and touch their history. Even better if you can do it in Luxury.

    1. And don’t forget that many of the top museums in London are free! The list is long and includes iconic attractions such as British Museum, Natural History Museum, National Gallery, Science Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, Tate Gallery, Museum of London, Imperial War Museum… and on it goes.

  2. There’s a touch of FOMO – Fear of Missing Out – to this. You’ve got to remember how aware of peer pressure children are. Once a few kids in their class have done the sights the rest will want to do Big Ben, The Tower of London, Changing the Guard, a Thames cruise etc. In some ways it’s sad but it is also good that they are learning about their heritage.

  3. Throw in a show too. Some kids never get to see live entertainment. There are so many great musicals in Theatreland nowadays. They can get really excited about song and dance. If they’re learning a musical instrument a show can be inspirational. Quick trip on the Tube and they’re in bed within 30 minutes, in the hotel, ready to recharge for the next day’s adventures.

  4. I’ve only just come across this piece. I took the kids to London for a long, long day. We packed in a lot. With rail ticket prices the way we are we had to go for a Cheap Day return so we didn’t get into London until 11.00 and then we couldn’t catch a train pack until after 7.15. Of course it was packed and we had to stand. Result – grizzly, grumpy and whining children which spoilt what should have been a great day. The Little Londoners package would have been perfect.

  5. Christmas in London is a must-do experience with kids. The Trafalgar Square Christmas Tree, the lights, a panto, the aroma of roasting chestnuts, ice-skating at Somerset House, the Christmas Markets etc. etc.

    Though it’s totlly exhausting. A Little Londoners package should make it all a lot easier.
