Things in Madeira for a 3 year old

edited December 1969 in General
Hi there

I am visiting Medeira over New Year and taking my 3 year old daughter. Does anyone have any suggestions for places we can visit whilst there that she will enjoy.

Many thanks.

PS. If interested in a ticket from London Stansted over NY then see my post under Travel.


  • There are several things you could do. There is a nice park with called "Madeira Magic" with activities for children. Maybe not as young as a 3 year old. But still worth a try if not just to see the nicely landscaped garden portion. see

    Since you are coming over the new year there will be many in town and free shows on the roads. Stalls with handicrafts, many displays, and shows for children at the Funchal municipal gardens. Your child will love the town centre decorations and its many lights.
