All Harry Potter fans would love this fun London day out: you'll start off at the Palace Theatre (where The Cursed child is showing) and find out your house, before travelling across the city seeing places from the film! Not only that, your fun guide will be dishing out Harry Potter trivia – and there's a quiz too. There's other tours if Harry Potter ain't your thing too.

Set up in some of the finest drinking establishments in the city, Handmade Mysteries takes escape rooms and gives them a twisted twist. Whether you are dealing with the enigmatic Lady Chastity or bizarre Poppa Plock and his wonky workshop, this is a great place to have some alternative fun.

If you love baking, you're going to adore the Big London Bake Off. They supply the ingredients, the marquee, and a monthly theme, all you have to do is bring some creativity and talent as you go head-to-head with up to ten other teams of two.

The Bunker 51 is perfect for those planning on going all out for their day out in London. Not only is it a massive space in Greenwich to be used for a whole range of activities, their main draw is that you're able to use it for airsoft, laser tag, and paintball – and with their packages it's never been more fun or affordable. They also have a zombie survival course that's dead fun
