Things to do with the Children in and around London.....
The London Eye
Definitely a must-do whilst you are in London. The kids will love it and so will you.
You can get a fantastic view of London from the London Eye.

Tower of London (Her Majesty's Royal Palace and Fortress)
The Tower of London is one of the hightlights of London. It is a historic castle located on the north
bank of the River Thames in Central London. The White Tower was originally constructure in 1078.
The Tower has been used as a Royal Residence and a prison. UNSESCO Heritage Listed, the Tower
of London is a pretty amazing place to visit. A 'museum' that the kids will in fact love.
My favorite thing to see in the Tower of London is the Crown Jewels.
For Ticket information, read more here.
The Royal Residence or at least one-side of Buckingham Palace is a beautiful Palace partially open
to the public. Buckingham Palace has served as the official London residence of Britain's sovereigns
since 1837 and is now the administrative headwuarters of the Monarch. Buckingham Palace is only
steps away from the beautiful Central London Parks - Hyde and St James Park.

The London Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour
Absolutely- without a doubt do the Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour (at least one route), this will take
you to many of the places that you need to be.
Choose your preferred Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour Operator.
The London Zoo
Some do not like visiting Zoo's, and whilst the London Zoo is not the most spacious that you
will visit, it is a well looked after Zoo with plenty of beautiful animals. The children will
certainly enjoy their time visiting there.

Harrod's Department Store
Without a doubt one of the most loveliest Store's you will visit. The Toy Department is wonderfully
beautiful. It is also where you can buy some typically British items, whether it be a Paddington
Bear or something else. If you have a morning spare and want to do a bit of shopping with the
family, this is a great option. If you happen to be in London at Christmas time, it is a must-see
place, as the Christmas displays and decorations are absolutely beautiful.
Other places to visit:
We think the other places to visit and do, should you have time include:
Hyde Park and St James' Park - these are both very lovely parks for the children to have a run
and play in, and they are also great for squirrel spotting. The kids will love watching the squirrels
running along the grass hopping from tree to tree.
Take an opportunity photo in a Red Telephone Box -
These are very typically British, and just
fun for the children to do.
A visit to London would not be complete without a visit to Westminsters Abbey.
Even if you do not do a tour of the inside of the Abbey, at least marvel at its beauty
from the outside.
Read more about Westminsters Abbey here.
Lastly, but definitely not least....
If you are looking for a visit to a magnificent Castle, definitely make a trip to Windsor's Castle.
Definitely Book the entry tickets for Windsor Castle ahead.
The line into the Castle can be horrendous, and prepaid entry tickets will take away this headache.
