Family activities Tube map

With the summer holidays in full swing and Family Fun season officially underway, there are loads of great activities open to visitors of all ages. 🥳 To ensure families can make the most of all that London has to offer, the Mayor of London recruited 5 young Londoners to become his Mayors of Play.

During their time in office, Mayors of Play worked alongside Sadiq to curate some of the most family-friendly and accessible activities in London, Britain’s Biggest playground! 🎪 These recommendations were carefully considered and were used to help reimagine London’s iconic Tube map for their peers. 🚇
