Want to give your dad the perfect Father's Day in London? From cultural attractions, to getting active outdoors, to Sunday lunch, there are loads of ways to spoil your dad in London this Father's Day.

Father's Day Activities

Arty fathers will love London's many art galleries and history buffs will enjoy the big museums. Trainspotting dads can spend hours getting "hands on" with interactive visits at London Transport Museum, which is very family-friendly. Those who are more into their military history will enjoy exploring the imposing HMS Belfast on the river Thames near London Bridge, which played a crucial role in supporting troops during the Second World War.

If your dad's into sport, London's sports museums are well worth a visit. Or why not book a stadium tour at one of London's iconic stadia?

Outdoors types might prefer a walk by the Thames or make a day of it at Kew Gardens. Visit the animals at ZSL London Zoo or London Wetland Centre or simply grab a football, frisbee or kite and head to one of London's parks and gardens.  

The way to a man's heart is definitely through his stomach… and that includes dad! Take him for a cosy gastro pub meal or treat him to a gentlemen's afternoon tea. If the weather is nice, why not treat him to a drink in one of London's riverside pubs, which have stunning views of the Thames; or opt for a pint in a beer garden.

If he has a head for heights, see if he can take the challenge of Up at the O2, a unique taste of urban mountaineering, or head up to The View from The Shard. Here, you can savour the views of London, which stretch up to 40 miles away, before heading up to The Shard’s champagne bar on level 69.

Shopping for Father's Day

If you're looking for Father's Day presents, you'll be spoilt for choice in London. Choose from one of the largest selections of wines and spirits in the country at Selfridges, pick up the perfect present for stylish dads at the men's department of Liberty or find quirky gifts in one of Carnaby's cool boutiques

Tickets to a stand-up comedy show or live music concerts also make a great gift for dad.
