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

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 (£35.99 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.

Gingerbread House Decorating

If you fancy a bit of festive cheer (who doesn't right now?), then gather your gang, pop on your fanciest Chrimbo jumper and book a Gingerbread House Decorating activity (from £18 per person). Not only will you have a blast customising your own edible house, but you'll get a choice of mulled wine or mug of Unicorn Hot Chocolate (topped with homemade rainbow whipped cream!) to keep you warm with. This activity is running through December, but do book ahead as spots are limited.

Stock up on sweets, homemade ice creams and a whole heap of cool, magical merch: no need to book - just pitch up and take a look. We can guarantee you won't be leaving empty handed!

Monthly Subscription (Student)

Don't worry if you can't get into London right now, the Wands and Wizard Exploratorium will send your little witch or wizard a monthly subscription (£24.99 per month) brimming with stupendous goodies all designed with magic, science and technology in mind. STEM, literature and creative edutainment at its finest!

Our advice? Book an experience, jump on your broom, and head on over to Wands and Wizard Exploratorium for a day out with a difference.
