Lisbon with Kids

The Vintage Lisbon - Anchor link

Lisbon is a fantastic city for families, with plenty to do and see for people of all ages. Not sure where to start? We’ve pulled together some of our favourites that you – and your kids – are sure to enjoy.

Hop on Tram 28. This legendary little yellow tram clatters through Lisbon’s coolest neighbourhoods including Alfama and its castle on the hill – the Castelo de São Jorge.

Check out the Oceanarium (Oceanario). Over in Parque das Nações, you can find the largest indoor aquarium in Europe housed in an iconic building that looks like its floating on the water. Includes a massive two-storey central tank that has over 100 species including sharks.

Go to Lisbon Zoo (Jardim Zoológico). One of the oldest zoos in Europe, the Jardim Zoológico has reinvented itself in recent years as an impressive centre for animal and habitat conservation.

Play at the Science Museum (Pavilho do Conhecimento). Perfect – specially on a rainy day – this museum is packed with interactive exhibits for kids, and most adults can’t resist getting stuck in too.

Visit the neighbourhood’s parks and playgrounds. Two of our favourite include Jardim da Estrela, complete with several kiosks and a playground for both big and little kids and Jardim de Príncipe Real, also with a small playground, restaurant and coffee kiosk.



We have sadly made the decision to close our doors for the short-term. It makes sense in these strange times and the safety of our guests, neighbours and team remains our top priority. 

Thank you for all your support. If we can help in any way then please let us know  – contact us at, whether to postpone an existing booking, make a future reservation or simply to address any other questions you may have. 

We are looking forward to reopening in July and will let you know once we have a set date. With that in mind, stringent new health & safety measures have been implemented.

We have also partnered with a private chauffeur company we trust and will be offering complimentary airport transfer from Lisbon airport or hotel parking for those arriving before October 1st 2020.

Until next time; stay safe, keep dreaming and hopefully see you soon…
