London serviced apartments are a great alternative to hotels, especially if you're planning a holiday. It can be difficult to get children to stick to hotel rules, but with an apartment at your disposal, they'll feel right at home. And, of course, there is so much that appeals to kids in this affluent part of the capital. Let them run off excess energy in Hyde Park or Holland Park or take them to the world's most famous toy shop, Hamley's in Regent Street. Your apartment in West London is also close to 'museum alley'. Take the tube to tube South Kensington or Gloucester Road for amazing outings at the Natural History Museum or the Science Museum. And, if that's not enough to keep them busy, why not spend the day by the River Thames at Richmond or take them skating at the Queen's Ice Rink in Bayswater.
