Planning to visit London with your kids? To most, it might seem that the words “kids” and “holiday” are mutually exclusive terms. While this claim may stand true for many on holiday, there are a myriad ways of keeping children happy, engaged and entertained during your holiday in London. What better way to achieve this task than food? According to London Tourist, the English did not have a reputation for having the most child-friendly restaurants in the past. However, significant measures have been taken in recent years to make London restaurants more children friendly. Today, there is an extensive list of eateries that are simply meant for dining with children all across the city. These restaurants may require you to shell out some extra money, which is why it is a smart move to look for cheap & budget hotels in Kensington for accommodation. Such accommodation also gives you quick and easy access to the train that can take you to various parts of London. Here’s a look at the top restaurants in London to dine in with your kids.

Planet Hollywood

This Central London restaurant has movie-obsessed owners but has managed to attract large crowds every single day. Since it is located in the heart of London, tourists can choose to stay at cheap & budget hotels in Kensington, such as Eden Plaza Kensington, which offers comfortable rooms with all the modern amenities while being situated in close proximity to the various attractions in Central London. This restaurant is run by an American family who have dedicatedly put up film memorabilia as tribute to iconic Hollywood actors. Even the soundtracks chosen are from specific films. Your child can have a special kid’s meal while listening to a song from The Lion King or the Madagascar series.

There is also a small lounge area on the far side of the third section. While the food served here is sure to delight children, they will be more in awe of their surroundings and the unique décor of this restaurant and cafe.
