Teen Verdict

Things to do, places to go for kids and teenagers - cool, academic, fun and entertaining in London and beyond with KidRated

Elliot, Age 15

London Duck Tours is pretty cool. A lot of younger kids go on it with their parents but it’s really for all ages.

The best bit is of course when you drive into the River Thames and suddenly becomes a boat and it doesn’t matter how old you THAT’s always going to be exciting.

I also quite enjoyed driving round London as well and taking in the sights. I’d say it’s pretty good for teenagers but expect a lot of younger kids too,

Have your say...

    Thanks, KidRated, for a great tip – the London Duck Landmark tour was a great outing for our gang of seasoned (ie old) Londoners and 4 kids aged 8-12. The commentary was witty and informative, the Duck was suprisingly comfortable, and you get loads of cheers and stares from bystanders! The descent into the Thames was scary (for me only – kids loved it) but smooth once you’re in the water. The length of the journey is perfect for the little ones. I’ll definitely go again when taking visitors around the city.
