A Family Friendly Guide to Chelsea
The team at our five star hotel in Chelsea have shared the very best of what to enjoy locally with the family this summer
Take your pick from some of our favourite events and activities and make your stay at our family friendly hotel Chelsea a truly unforgettable experience for all.
Enjoy a picnic in Hyde Park
London’s most famous Royal Park is filled with rich history and stunning landscapes. Explore the picturesque Kensington Gardens, Diana Memorial and the charming palace itself. A tourist hot spot and favourite with locals alike, a sunny day spent rowing along the Serpentine, marvelling at the epic Albert memorial, will make for a perfect day out when the weather is fine. Find out more about the events taking place at Hyde Park throughout the summer.
Explore the Chelsea Physic Gardens
With a series of family friendly summer events from creepy crawly shows, interactive workshops and, of course, the gorgeous botanical gardens to explore, this little spot on the doorstep of our five star boutique hotel in Chelsea makes for a perfect escape from city life.
Explore the Museum District
The museum district in South Kensington is just a short walk, taxi or tube ride away from the Draycott Hotel and is a great way to entertain children on a rainy day. The Science Museum and Natural History Museum are located next door to one another and are guaranteed to provide endless hours of fun and excitement for children. The V&A, situated along the same stretch of road, is perfect for older children or teenagers with an interest in the arts.
See a show at The Royal Albert Hall
Perhaps you’re heading to London to celebrate a birthday? Or you might simply wish to treat your family to something a little extra special during your trip? Whatever the occasion, a show at The Royal Albert Hall is certain to impress. Marvel at the stunning architecture before heading inside the breath-taking auditorium for an afternoon to remember. There are plenty of family-friendly performances, so view upcoming shows and book tickets in advance to avoid missing out.
Tuck into Summer Themed Afternoon Tea
Although sharing supper or a light lunch with your family is always a nice way to spend an afternoon, you could always stick to tradition and indulge in a little tea and cake in Chelsea with a seasonal twist? Serving up fresh sandwiches and sweet treats alongside pots of tea – or a glass of cool Champagne, of course – sit down with your family this summer and enjoy our extra special seasonal afternoon tea experience.
If you are looking for the finest of family friendly hotels in London to relax and unwind after a long day exploring, book a room at The Draycott Hotel in Sloane Square for a cosy, traditional experience in the heart of Chelsea. Enjoy teddy bear companions, have a go at your own Draycott Doodle and sit down to a warm cup of hot chocolate and freshly baked biscuits to relax with your family for the evening before heading up to bed.
