Park Plaza London Waterloo pays homage to the historic circus

April 2018: To mark the 250th anniversary of the modern circus, which first took place on Hercules Road on the evening of 4th April 1768, Park Plaza London Waterloo – located just a stone’s throw from the original site on the same road – has today announced its summer program of Kids’ Club activities that pay homage to the historic event. 

Helping to make sure the little ones have everything they need to keep them from twiddling their thumbs during the school summer holidays, the family friendly hotel will be hosting a regular series of activities that will take them from room-to-ring in an instant. But fear not, your kids won’t be left to balance their way across a tightrope or swing on a trapeze; the fun-filled activities will keep their feet firmly on the ground with farm visits, circus-inspired buffets and movie afternoons to name but a few. Activities will include: 

  • Farm visits (family-friendly Oasis Farm Waterloo is located across the road from the hotel)
  • Movie afternoons complete with traditional circus snacks such as popcorn and candyfloss 
  • Clown ‘lessons’ every Saturday • Circus-inspired muffin and shortbread decorating classes
  • Circus-inspired kids buffet 
  • Illy Caffe Circus “lolly pops”
Located on the ground floor, the complimentary kids’ club is just one of the reasons to book your next family holiday at the hotel. Coming complete with a 15-metre swimming pool, Mandara Spa and a selection of family friendly dining options, families can take advantage of the hotel’s very special family getaway package that includes accommodation for two adults and two children (aged 12 and under) in a range of rooms, free children’s meals, a complimentary Children’s Gift Bag with activities and Park Plaza Children’s vouchers that can be redeemed against selected food and drink items in the hotel.
