Want a weekend to relax but can’t tie down a time to get out of London or it’s too much hassle orchestrating the house, hubby and kids? Why not look into a stay-cation? Somewhere in London that has everything a hotel would have in another city AND something that will get the kids acting on their best behaviour?
Hang on… What is KidZania? What is it? It is out of this world. You can just see the look in parents eyes thinking “I wish we had this”. I felt my inner child come out walking around and exploring the Noddy World-type town. KidZania is location in Westfield Shepherds Bush and is a city where children can immerse themselves in ‘the real world’ and have hands on experience trying out different types of occupations. From life on-call in a hospital, to a chocolate factory worker, running the tills at the bank, policeman, fireman, radio producer, news reporter – you name it! Any job you can think – they have it! They even have a town courier delivering the mail and a tattoo parlour! It’s educational, interactive and allows the kids creativity to come alive. I was really impressed with the vast amount of occupations they encouraged participation in (there was even a window cleaner!).
To add to the authenticity and ‘realness’ of the town, KidZania have partnered with real life brands. When you enter you are given a British Airways ticket, you can be a shop assistant at H&M or even flip burgers at Gourmet Burger Kitchen!
Just a short stroll from KidZania is Dorsett Shepherds Bush, a new addition to the Dorsett family.
Why the Dorsett? Dorsett Shepherds Bush is the perfect hotel choice for a stay-cation. It’s stylish, comfortable, central and most importantly provides the perfect sanctuary for guests to enjoy, relax, party and refresh. The hotel offers 2 restaurants, Jin bar and a spa. The 8-storey hotel with 317 rooms boasts modern architecture and design.

Lots of love, Spicedfox xx
