The area by M & S in Westfield White City may look unspectacular from the outside, but don’t be fooled. Inside you’ll find a whole new world where kids take charge. KidZania is an educational, but also fun, an environment where kids can learn all kinds of practical and grown-up skills through role-playing. The children even earn money for their ‘work’, in the form of ‘kidZos’, which can be redeemed or saved to buy a souvenir from the reward store.
If your kids have ever fancied being a pilot, they can try out the aviation academy. Kids can also try working as a journalist in a newspaper, a radio DJ, a sports star, a fashion designer or a chocolatier. Click here to see the whole list of activities.
KidZania is a totally immersive and interactive experience so there’s little chance of kids getting bored. They probably won’t even realise how much they’ve learnt along the way.
KidZania is for all kids between the ages of 4 and 14. There is also an early years programme for 0 to 3-year-olds, including a Science Lab, Music Workshop and the RightZKeeper Residence. Children aged 0-7 (inclusive) must be accompanied by a full paying adult (18+) at all times. Children 8 and over can enter the city unaccompanied, but an adult must be present for admission and it is recommended that they enter in groups of 2 or more.
KidZania is entirely accessible to wheelchair users.
