It has to be said that London is one of the most exciting, fast-moving and glamorous cities in the world. Due to the unique heritage and ceaselessly moving nature of our capital city, it is no wonder tourists from around the world flock here in their droves.
For children, the fast-paced, neon-emblazoned and vibrancy of London, all but guarantees that they view the capital in awe and bewilderment. Given a child’s fascination with such a flamboyant and pulsating city, London could be the perfect place to hold a child’s party, whether you live in the capital or not.
You’ll find that you are literally spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing somewhere to take your excited brood of children on a birthday party venture in the capital. Fortunately, help is at hand, and if you are struggling to know which venue to opt for to satisfy a gang of thoroughly excited kids, take a look at the following top places to have a kids’ party in London.

With bowling, bumper cars, simulators, shooting pool, video games and much, much more, there’s never a dull moment at Namco Funscape, hence why it’s just a popular place for a child’s birthday party.
The birthday packages include the use of all the attractions, with the excitement of goodie bags, invitations and balloons all thrown into the colourful mix.
Namco Funscape is located in County Hall, Westminster Bridge Road. The party packages cost £14.95 per child.
This vibrant venue that brings together all the sights and sounds of the jungle is located just minutes from Piccadilly Circus. With a lively mix of waterfalls, tropical fish tanks and moving animatronics, the Rainforest Café never fails to enthral young children and therefore makes a great place to hold a child’s birthday party.
In organising everything from the invitations, party bags, food and birthday cake, you can sit back and relax and watch the little monkeys have the time of their lives.
The Rainforest Café birthday package costs £15.50 per child.

Baby Loves Disco
What has been dubbed as being the “coolest kids’ birthday party in town,” Baby Loves Disco enables babies, toddlers and children up to the age of seven, to boogie down on the dance floors of some of the hippest clubs in London.
Children will simply adore an afternoon of DJs mixing retro disco and the latest pop tunes, with the disco lights spinning across the dance floor. The Baby Loves Disco events include face painting, a dressing up corner and a lunch comprising of healthy snacks and juices. There are also ‘chill out’ areas and arts and crafts activities for the little ones who’ve had enough of the dance floor.
Baby Loves Disco costs £9 per child. For more information visit the website.
Arrange your own party
Of course if you live in London or know anyone who would be willing to hand their property over to a dozen or so screaming children for a few hours, hosting your own kids’ party in London can be just as exciting as having it at a glamorous venue.
Decking the party room out in pretty fairy lights, balloons and party poppers and playing all the traditional party games, such as ‘Pass the Parcel’ and ‘Musical Statues’ never fails to thrill a party full of children.
With its wide range of lights, decorations and other accessories, Christmas Trees and Lights can help you celebrate a party, whatever time of year it is, in style.
