London is Open London Eye

'London is Open for Summer' - Family fun for all

31 July 2017

The capital's unique atmosphere really comes to life over summer with the best festivals, sporting events, museums, attractions and lush green spaces around every corner.

As part of the London is Open for Summer Campaign, the Mayor has launched a new video urging families to take advantage of all the great things on offer this summer. 

The video gives glimpses of some of London's best loved tourist attractions getting ready to open in the morning, with spoken-word poet Suli Breaks narrating famous quotes about London from famous poets and authors including William Blake, Charles Dickens, William Dunbar and Anna Quindlen.

London Awakens...

There's no better time to explore than summer

There are a whole host of amazing offers that families can take advantage of over the school holidays. There’s free children’s tickets to a range of West End shows and London Transport Museum as well as great offers to attractions, restaurants and more. Check out Visit London for summer inspiration and offers.

The Mayor has launched new London Curriculum Family Explorer Trails today. The family trails guide you through some of the most fascinating part of the capital, including the City of London, Knowledge Quarter, Creative Quarter and South Bank.

So, why not bring your children on a London Curriculum Family Explorer Trail or to a world-class attraction.
