City of London Children’s Trail

Explore the City with Draco the Dragon. Three carefully chosen child-friendly routes, the self-guided City of London Children’s Trail, makes exploring on foot even easier for families.

See towering modern skyscrapers and mysterious medieval buildings. Find fabulous world-class museums and the world-famous Tower Bridge. Discover iconic landmarks and hidden gems.

Each trail takes approximately 45 minutes to complete and features three famous landmarks (plus two hidden gems along or near to the route).

To make things even more exciting, there are activities and stickers included with the map - bring your own pen or pencil! The activities are fun creative ways for children aged 5-11 to learn a little bit more about the buildings around them - perfect for young explorers.

Watch the Children's Trail video and visit the City of London for a day of family fun!

Where to get the Children's Trail map

Pick up a copy of the map with activities and stickers from the City Information Centre next to St Paul's Cathedral. The friendly visitor advisor team at the CIC can also answer any questions you have about the City and help you get ready for your adventure.
