Attractions located less than 60 minutes from central London include:

-- Windsor Castle. Catch a 40-minute mainline train from Paddington Station to Windsor & Eton Central, then walk five minutes to Windsor Castle.

-- Legoland. Legoland  lets you bring out your inner child with rides, shows and Miniland - cities and landmarks famously recreated with Lego bricks. Just half an hour from London Paddington to Windsor & Eton Central, via Slough on Great Western Railway. Or direct from London Waterloo to Windsor & Eton Riverside on South West Trains. 
 
-- Kew Gardens - a UNESCO world heritage site - are just 30 minutes south of central London, on the District line to Richmond.

-- Richmond Park is the largest of the Royal Parks and has remained almost unchanged since the 1600's when King Charles I turned it into a nature reserve and deer sanctuary. Getting there by tube / train: Richmond Station - National Rail or District Line (and then catch the 371 or 65 buses to the pedestrian gate at Petersham).

-- Royal Tunbridge Wells. Jump on a train at London’s Charing Cross and you can be in Royal Tunbridge Wells in just 50 minutes. This Kentish spa town first found fame 400 years ago, when an iron-rich spring was discovered and the gentry flocked to ‘cure’ ailments from infertility to hangovers. Today you can still taste the healing waters, served to you by a traditionally-dressed dipper.
 
-- Warner Bros. Studio Tour London.  Immerse yourself in the wizarding world with an enchanting visit to Warner Bros. Studio Tour London - The Making of Harry Potter. When the final Harry Potter movie wrapped, a magical trove of treasures were left behind. Two soundstages and a back lot were reassembled and opened to adoring fans. Catch the train or tube from London Euston to Watford Junction, then a shuttle bus, and you could be knocking at Hogwarts’ door within 40 minutes.
 
-- Hatfield House. Catch the fast train from Kings Cross and you could be outside Hatfield House, Hertfordshire, in just 20 minutes. The Old Palace was owned by Henry VIII and was the childhood home of Queen Elizabeth I, while the newer Jacobean Hatfield House was built in 1611. You can tour both homes and the grounds, including the very spot where Elizabeth I discovered she’d become Queen of England.
