In pictures: First look at Kidzania London

Children's educational space, Kidzania, opened the doors of its first UK branch in London today (25 June), alongside brands such as Innocent, British Airways and Renault.


The venue, which is located in Westfield London, has been designed as an educational play centre for children aged four to 14.

Partner brands such as Cadbury, Bank of England and Gourmet Burger Kitchen have worked with the company to develop an immersive cityscape where kids can try their hand at more than 60 professions such as dentistry, hairdressing and journalism.

As Kidzania's airline partner, British Airways has installed an airport terminal and a real A319 aircraft, where kids can join the 'Aviation Academy' or 'Cabin Crew Training School'.

Car brand Renault has created a pit lane experience to give teams of kids the chance to change the tyres of a purpose-built, scale model E.dams-Renault Formula E car under race conditions.

Other brands hosting permanent activations in the space include Global Radio, H&M and Innocent.

The space can be hired for events through Lime Venue Portfolio. It can host up to 1,200 standing guests in locations such as the main square.

The airport, stadium and theatre areas can also host corporate and private bookings.
