Best Places To Visit In Delhi With Family (Especially If You Have Kids!)

The capital city of India has a fair share of green areas and gardens, but they tend to be concentrated in certain regions. Most of Delhi is relatively urban and can feel quite hectic at times. If you’re looking for a calmer side of the city with plenty of family-friendly activities, there are some great options just an hour or two away from central Delhi. These are the best places to visit in Delhi with family if you have kids.


The best way to explore these wonderful places is by hiring a car and driver for the day (or longer). This will not only mean you won’t have to worry about where to go next or how to get there, but you will also be able to unpack picnic baskets and spend more time relaxing instead of worrying about the next destination.

Best Places to Visit in Delhi with Family

Here is a list of the best places to visit in Delhi with your family:

India Gate

The first thing you need to see in Delhi is the India Gate. It is a war memorial for the eighty-four thousand Indian soldiers who fought for the British and died in World War I. Their names are written on the stone wall. The memorial is situated in the centre of New Delhi near the Rashtrapati Bhavan and at the end of the Rajpath.

The 138 feet tall monument is inspired by Paris’s Arc de Triomphe. Also, beneath its archway is “Amar Jawan Jyoti”-- a base made of black marble consisting of four eternal flames depicting the sacrifices of the Indian soldiers who fought in the Liberation War of Bangladesh in 1971. 

Taj Mahal

The Taj Mahal is on top of our list of best places to visit in Delhi with family. There are two magnificent tourist spots near Delhi which are a must-visit with your family– one is the Taj Mahal and the other is Red Fort. Both were commissioned by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan– the prince of architecture.

The Taj Mahal is considered his greatest creation and the best act of love in history. Shah Jahan started building the Taj Mahal in 1631 after his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal’s death. It houses the tomb of Mumtaz Mahal and emperor Shah Jahan himself. The Taj is often described as the most beautiful building in the world. 

The amazing white marble building changes colour at different times of the day. The design and architecture of the Taj are splendid. It took 22,000 workers 22 years to create this masterpiece. The entire area is 17 hectares with lush gardens and beautiful water features. Your family members and kids will love it for sure.

Red Fort

Red Fort was the official residence of the Mughal emperors. It was a truly magnificent palace before the British took over and damaged its precious artefacts. Still, the Red Fort is considered one of the most important historic forts of India. Commissioned by emperor Shah Jahan in 1638, the fort stands as one of the most important buildings of the Mughal Era.

This UNESCO World Heritage Site’s major structures are Lahori Gate, Delhi Gate, Naubat Khana, Dewan-e-Aam, Mumtaz Mahal, Shish Mahal, Rang Mahal, Khas Mahal, Dewan-e-Khas, etc. The art and architecture of this place are extraordinary and leave you awestruck.

Jama Masjid

Another one on our list of places to visit in Delhi with family is the Jama Masjid near the Red Fort. It was also commissioned by Shah Jahan. It is one of the largest and most beautiful mosques in India and showcases Mughal design and architecture. It was the imperial mosque during Mughal Era. The cost of building the mosque was 1 million rupees at that time. It is still actively in use and Muslims from all around the world perform their namaz while visiting.

Qutub Minar

Qutub Minar is a 238 ft minaret or victory tower commissioned by Qutb-ud-din Aibak in 1192. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is 5 storeyed and there is a staircase leading up to the highest level of the minaret. The minaret’s Islamic architecture is beautiful. Quranic verses are etched on the walls of Qutub Minar.

The staircase which goes up to the 5th storey is closed now because of an accident that happened in 1981. 45 tourists, mostly children, died during a power outage inside the tower. The dark and steep staircase caused mass panic and people started rushing down the staircase and stomping on each other. 

Humayun’s Tomb

Another UNESCO World Heritage Site in Delhi is the gorgeous Humayun’s Tomb. It was commissioned by emperor Humayun’s beloved wife Bega Begum. The tomb’s Indo-Islamic architecture is beautiful with intricate designs and floorplan. The Mausoleum houses the remains of Emperor Humayun as well as other members of the Mughal family. There are 150 graves in Humayun’s tomb including his wives, children, and grandchildren. 

The 16th-century memorial is brimming with history. The tomb compound consists of some other tombs and monuments, a well-maintained garden and restored water features. You can easily visit the place with your family and enjoy a great day with one of the most significant monuments of Mughal history.

Chandni Chowk

Last on our list of best places to visit in Delhi with family is Chandn3i Chawk. It is a historically significant as well as prominent shopping area in Old Delhi. Shah Jahan’s favourite daughter Jahanara Begum founded this shopping area. The name Chandni Chawk derives from the half-moon-shaped shopping area divided in the middle by a canal. It is said that the canal water reflected in the moonlight and created a magical environment. But that’s history now. Today’s Chandni Chawk is a hustling-bustling, crowdy shopping hub of Delhi. You can find everything here. From clothes to electronic goods to daily consumer goods, shoes, accessories, roadside food like hot Jalebis, and whatnot! 

Some other historical and amusement sites you can visit on your Delhi trip are Safdarjung’s Tomb, Lodhi Gardens, the National Museum, Nehru Botanical Gardens, and the Museum of Illusions.
