Some families are made up of two children and two adults, but many are not. But which London venues that charge entry have adapted to the modern family size?

Based on a trawl, below is a list of the top venues I remembered to check and how they define what a family consists of. Some are quite flexible, with multiple children options, and quite a few understanding that single parents exist. Unsurprisingly, the two religious venues still expect parents to come in twos.

It’s worth noting that a number of places don’t charge for children at all, so there the family size is not an issue. I was going to check for the paid exhibitions at the big free museums, but they change so often that the list will be out of date so soon as to render it useless.

In summary, the following London venues that charge for children, but have options that understand that some families have more than 2 kiddies.

  • Apsley House
  • Bentley Priory Museum
  • Brooklands Museum
  • Canal Museum
  • Churchill War Rooms
  • Down House
  • Eltham Palace
  • Florence Nightingale Museum
  • Hampton Court Palace
  • Harry Potter World
  • Heath Robinson Museum
  • HMS Belfast
