Ever wondered what’s in Cockfosters, Ruislip and all those other places tube trains end up after you’ve alighted? An awful lot, actually, with a veritable goldmine of family-friendly activities along the way. And not only are London’s outer reaches great for fun days out but Transport for London’s ultra-affordable off-peak fares make getting the clan there simple and cheap too. So grab your Oyster card and round up the kids – it’s time to seek out some city secrets.
Remember to check TfL Journey Planner before you travel.
When the British summer is at its best, remember to carry a bottle of water with you while you make your journey, and use sunscreen with high SPF for kids!
