Go Ape Battersea
  • Things to do
  • Battersea

Battersea Park is the Go Ape group’s first central London location (there’s another in the Enfield suburbs), and it’s certainly gone big with it. Kids are welcome: the Tree Top Adventure is for ages 10+, minimum height of 1.4m (4ft 7″); and the Tree Top Junior course is for ages 6-12.

Shrek's Adventure! London
  • 4 out of 5 stars
  • Attractions
  • Theme parks
  • South Bank

Heroics will be expected, group singing might erupt and mild dungeon-escaping peril is a strong possibility. Step this way… Staff greet you dressed like 1950s-style air stewards and stewardesses, keeping up the comedy breeziness to ensure that by the time you’re at the front of the queue, you’re well and truly in the mood for a family daytrip in fairytale land.

The Idol
  • Sport and fitness
  • Leisure centres
  • Barking

Artist Marvin Gaye Chetwynd has designed an incredible three-storey play space.
