22 January 2024

The bustling capital city of London is known for being full of culture, art, and entertainment. But if you’re looking for the perfect place to host your child’s next birthday party, you won’t be disappointed. It can be difficult to find the right type of children’s parties that will keep your little ones (and their friends) entertained. 

London is nothing if not unique, so it is hardly surprising that it has children's party ideas to suit all ages or interests. Throwing your little (or not-so-little) bundle of joy to a children’s party to remember has never been easier with London’s versatile playground to choose from. So whether they’re super sporty and athletic or love to be around their favourite animals on their special day, here are the best children's party ideas in London. 

Pirate Parties aboard The Golden Hinde

In the heart of London located on London Bridge, you can find the breathtaking recreation of the famous ship, The Golden Hinde. This was the ship that Sir Francis Drake navigated across the globe in the name of Queen Elizabeth I to raid Spanish colonies. Not only is this a great history lesson for your little ones, but it is also popular for children’s parties. 

On board the ship you can commandeer five decks for a young pirates’ birthday party which includes entertainment provided by the crew members of the Golden Hinde with treasure hunts and tales from the seas. 

Kid’s Snow Parties at The Snow Centre

As London’s closest indoor real snow slope, if you're looking for a wintry wonderland for your child’s birthday party then you can rely on The Snow Centre to give you real snow all year round. But don’t worry, these slopes aren’t just for the seasoned skiers out there, it is also a haven for kids (and adults) of all ages to experience the thrill of snowboarding and skiing. Whether you’re looking for private lessons or lift passes for all the family, The Snow Centre has got it all. 

The great news is that The Snow Centre offers children’s parties too! Whether you’re looking to book a 4-10-year-old’s birthday party or something a bit older for your younger kids with an 11-16-year-old’s birthday party, there is something for everyone. The parties include:

Treetop Adventures at Go Ape

If you’re looking for children’s parties that offer something a bit more adventurous then look no further than Go Ape Battersea. Not only is it perfect for your cheeky monkeys, but adults can get involved too! With a 231-metre Tree Top Junior course, your party guests can navigate the crossings, and wobbly bridges and even take on the zip wires (if they’re feeling brave). 

But don’t worry if you aren’t keen on taking part as you can also supervise from the ground with a warm coffee in your hand. If you’re looking to make a whole day of it then the Go Ape site is conveniently located next door to Battersea Park Children’s Zoo and Putt in The Park crazy golf!

Of course, the only problem with planning children’s parties in London is that you may be caught short by the unpredictable English weather. This is why when looking for children's party ideas you should look at indoor options such as kid’s parties at All Star Lanes. There are multiple central locations to choose from, including Holborn, Brick Lane, Stratford and White City, so wherever you’re coming from in the capital you won't have to travel too far.
