KidZania London has announced it will be opening its doors to the public at Westfield in Shepherd's Bush on June 25.

KidZania is a 75,000 square foot child sized city created on the top floor of the shopping centre. Calling itself an educational entertainment experience, it gives children aged 4 to 14 a chance to experience the world of work through role-play and learn essential life-skills such as team-work, financial literacy and communication.

There are more than 60 real life professions, including paramedic, pilot, actor, stylist, pit-lane engineer, radio DJ and many more. You can see the full list - from acting and aviation academies to vault guard apprentice and university students - here.

City locations include an airport, stadium, theatre and main square.

KidZania's city can also be booked by adults for corporate events such as receptions and awards ceremonies for up to 1,200 people.

Tickets are now on sale from the opening day onwards, costing from £28 for kids aged four to 14 and £16.50 for accompanying adults.

Children aged four to seven inclusive can only enter KidZania if accompanied by an adult aged 18 or over at all times. Adults may leave children aged seven to 14 inclusive unaccompanied at KidZania and therefore do not require to purchase an adult ticket. However an adult must be present at time of check-in and provide suitable contact details.

While kids enjoy the KidZania experience, accompanying parents can choose to observe from outside the establishments, or go to The Parents Lounge. The lounge provides a quiet reading area, free Wi-Fi Internet access, computers and a coffee shop.

Meanwhile, KidZania is continuing to recruit 290 local staff ahead of the launch. You can find out more about these jobs here and appply via the KidZania London careers website.
