Indoor things to do in London


London is one of the most exciting cities in the world - however, it is not one of the driest! Whilst London does offer sunshine many months of the year, the weather is certainly unpredictable, and rain can surprise even the most well-prepared visitor.
 

Luckily, if bad weather does hit, there are plenty of indoor attractions in London, and this list will take you through some of the best things to do in London indoors. Who is worried about the rain anyway? Definitely not us!

Tower of London

One of the best indoor attractions London has to offer has got to be The Tower of London, where you can see over 1000 years of British Royal History including the incredible Crown Jewels. You can even have a guided Beefeater tour for only £25 per adult.

Boat Cruise along the Thames

Most of London’s main tourist spots can actually be seen from the Thames (a river which runs right through the heart of the city). During bad weather, why not jump on a boat tour such as City Cruises, and enjoy all the sights from inside a riverboat? You’ll get some great photos along the way, and you’ll even have a cafe onboard, so you can enjoy a cup of tea (or two!).

Sea Life London

One of the largest SEALIFE sites, London is home to over 500 species of aquatic life, including Turtles, Sharks, Piranhas, and Jellyfish among many more. If you are taking the children make sure to take them to the educational talks and feeding sessions for an up-close experience. Adult sightseeing cruise combination tickets are from £34.50 and children ages 3-15 or £25.30. 

The London Dungeon

A relative newcomer to the list of indoor attractions in London, an incredible one, is ‘The making of Harry Potter – Warner Bros, Studio Tour’ where you will be able to see the sets, props and costumes used in the making of Harry Potter.
