With the Easter holidays beckoning, Parents are faced with the often arduous task of entertaining children. While two whole weeks off school is music to their ears, its all too easy to slip into the same old tried and tested half term activity routine. So, if you are looking for something new and exciting this Easter break, ditch the sofa and consider a trip to London, the cultural epicentre of the United Kingdom. 

Rain or shine, our capital has a plethora of exciting places to visit and things to see and do. For the novice urban voyager and the seasoned city-goer alike, there is always something new and exciting just waiting to be discovered.

If sightseeing is your thing, London visits and open tour buses go hand in hand, and if you haven't visited before, exploring London's many wonders by bus makes for a fascinating tour. Expect plenty of photos and pointing of fingers as you wind your way around its many famous roads. For essential stops, we recommend a stroll around the iconic Tower of London, a birds eye view from the top of the London Eye, or watching the city pass you by on a River Thames boat cruise.

London hosts an endless supply of museums and galleries to keep the rascals entertained; The Science Museum, The Natural History Museum and The Tate are some of the many free treasures on offer. With hundreds of fascinating exhibits at any one time, they might even learn something new… but don't tell them that!

Step back in time and free the intrepid explorer within at the gruesome London Dungeon, where shocks and surprises lurk in the darkness. Or, for those of a nervous disposition who prefer their thrills a little tamer, try a visit to Madame Tussauds for a guaranteed star studded experience.

Round off the day in style with a West End Show! Whether you are singing along to an old classic or enchanting yourself with a brand new discovery, there really is something to capture the imagination of the whole family. 

There is so much to do with the kids this Easter half term that are sure to excite and amaze. iStreet has partnered with a range of companies offering discounted tickets to attractions such as Big Bus Tours LondonDiscount London and London Pass and even train companies like Thetrainline, that will raise donations to your chosen charity.

With so much to see and do, you'll need two more weeks off! So the question is - what are waiting for?
