Things to do in London with kids: Wands and Wizard Exploratorium


Things to do in London with kids: Wands and Wizard Exploratorium


Looking for a magical adventure in London with your little witches and wizards? Then you need to know about five floors of exploration and magic brought to life at the really rather awesome Wands and Wizard Exploratorium over on Greek Street...


Wands and Wizard Exploratorium


Nestled in the heart of Soho you'll find a combination of cool magic and science awaiting you at Wands and Wizard Exploratorium. Whether you fancy popping in to buy your own magical merch, with cool swag ranging from tees to cocktail making kits, DIY wands to colourful sweets, or want to try an experience the whole fam will love, you definitely need Wands and Wizard Exploratorium on your radar, stat. Magic, science, tech and design all in one place? Tick, tick and tick. We also LOVE that these guys are huge supporters of the LBGTQ+ community: extra hurrah to that!


The Magic Wand Experience


We recently tried The Magic Wand Experience (£40 per person), and if you're looking for a brilliant activity that's a little bit different, then this is most certainly it. For your session, you'll climb to the top of the building and find yourselves in a gorgeously olde worlde room with the master Wandmaker himself, where you'll be led through instructions to make your very own custom, illuminated magic wand. It's COVID-safe, great fun and you get to keep your wand to impress your mates with.

A magical brew or two


For an afternoon tea with a difference choose from either the Arcane Afternoon Tea if your kids are 12-years or older, or the Little Wizard's Afternoon Tea if they're 11-years and younger. Either way you can expect a bewitching afternoon tea experience where you use working magic wands to brew interactive teas and taste fantastical treats: the sand-witches are delish.
