Apart from visiting the famous landmarks of London, there is so much more to this city. I have gathered a list of fun things to do in London for the adventurous travellers.
With 34 Go Ape locations all around the UK, there are three locations in London: Alexandra Palace, Cockfosters, and Battersea Park. It is a treetop adventure combined with ziplining experience in a forest location, with activities for adventurers of all ages.
Make sure you check the availability as Go Ape is closed most of the winter season an Coivd-19 also might affect the opening times/dates.
For people who think golf is a boring sport, think again! Junkyard Golf is a fun take on the sport and it is very enjoyable with a group of friends. Try this weird, crazy, and fun experience with friends, especially if you are on a bachelor/bachelorette trip.
Five of TeamSport’s incredible Go Karting London tracks guarantee to give even the most seasoned karters a thrill, located at London Docklands, North London, West London, Mitcham, South London, and Watford. All tracks are fully equipped with a massive 500m to 800m tracks and nail-biting corners. You’ll be able to get up to speeds of 40MPH and aim for track times around the 44 second mark.
Riding a 150cc quad bike, you and your friends will tackle a variety of terrain. The qualified instructors are available, and they will ensure that every rider is safe but still enjoy a rocking and rolling good time. Even the beginner adventure-seeker will enjoy the experience and will learn to expertly manage each challenge. Quad Biking is fast, furious, and fun – what else an adventurer can ask for?
If you like wild animals, enter the land of adventure – the Longleat Safari; where lions roam, tigers stalk, and monkeys swing. You can also try one of their magical mazes. You can also grab a chance to hold the exotic creatures from the ends of the Earth. Overall, a great fun day for adults and kids.
As mentioned in one of my other posts from the London series, Centre Parcs Longleat Forest – Wiltshire, is a great escape for everyone, a group of friends or families. Try one of the many indoor and outdoor activities, eat-in at one of the restaurants or enjoy a delicious takeaway delivery in your open-plan accommodation. You can do it all, together.
Have gallons of fun at Lee Valley White Water Centre, from white water rafting on the Olympic course to family paddling on the lake. Choose from a range of activities or sit back and watch the action at The Terrace Bar & Café. Experience an unforgettable day out with friends and/or family.

The Crystal Maze LIVE
Remember the famous 90’s show Crystal Maze? Try the 70 minutes of frantic, frenetic, silly team fun that’s open to everybody aged 13 and over.
The goal of the players is to get as much time in the Dome and score as many points as they can. The team would need to run around four different zones including industrial, futuristic, medieval and aztec. The team needs to test their skills, solve mysteries, and face physical and mental challenges.
All of these are against the clock, naturally. The more challenges you complete successfully, the more Crystals you win and the more time you’ll have for the final test in the drumroll – The Crystal Dome.
Learn to fly in one of the two-hour classes at the Gorilla Circus in Regents Park, London. You need to start with a warm-up session and then move on to practicing a simple trick on the low bar. The player then attempts the trick on the Flying Trapeze. They are then caught by an instructor on a separate swinging bar at the end. A fun activity to do with friends and family for sure!
Hope this has given some adventurous feeling to your London trip! XX
