If you’re planning a visit to London with children, you would do well to include a trip to Chessington World of Adventures during your stay.
With ten themed ‘lands’ and over 40 rides and attractions, this is a theme park with something for everyone.
Alongside the theme park is a zoo which brings you face-to-face with over 1000 exotic animals including lions, tigers, gorillas, iguanas, snakes and dragons, and a Sea-Life Centre which features fun exhibitions, daily feeding sessions and a remarkable walk-through ocean tunnel.
Chessington lies 12 miles southwest of London in the borough of Kingston-upon-Thames and can be reached from any of our London vacation rentals by trains which run from Waterloo, Clapham Junction and Wimbledon.
Tickets can be purchased on arrival, although you will save money by booking in advance. You can do so, and find out more, here.
