I adore London; I would happily live in one of those big town houses overlooking Regent’s Park! I know it will probably never happen but it’s a nice dream to have. I’d have to win an enormous amount of money to be able to afford to buy one; let alone live there and maintain the same standard of living as we do now! I was brought up in the Peak District and lived in tiny villages until I was 30 so going down to London was a huge thing for me! I don’t long for country living anymore; I love the hustle and bustle of city life! Later this month we are taking the kids down to London on the train for the day! I never visited until I was almost 30 so I want the kids to love it as much as I do from an early age!
I have been having a look around online for ideas for what to do for the day; I don’t want to exhaust them but want them get a real feel for it! I’ve always wanted to go to London Dungeons but I think the littlies are a bit young for that, I am sure they would love an open top bus tour; that would be a great way to see the sights but save their little legs.
This is a list of all the things I want them to experience but not necessarily in the one day –
- The London Eye
- Open Top Bus Tour
- London Zoo
- National History Museum
- V&A Museum of Childhood
- Tower of London
- Visit Harrods & Hamleys
- Harry Potter Studios
- London Duck Tours
Hmmm I think I am going to have to come up with some kind of plan because there is no way we will be able to get everything we want to do done in a week let alone a day! I think maybe on our first day trip we will go on the London Eye and get a bus tour so they can see all the sights. I am sure that will be enough for them without dragging them around art galleries and museums too
What do you think? Have you had a day trip to London with your little ones? Can you leave me some tips? What to do and what not to do?
