London, UK
  • Traveled with British Airways
  • Overall tips Though expensive, there is so much to do with kids. the city is fairly easy to get around though with a stroller the tube and buses are not always easy. We would go back again and the food situation has improved dramatically!
Accommodation
  • London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square
    Grosvenor Square, Mayfair, London W1K 6JP, UK
    I really enjoyed this hotel. I abit crowded in the in the summer but you can't beat the location. There was a fruit stand up the street which was nice for some healthy inexpensive snacks. We upgraded to an executive suite and it fit (a little tight) all five of us and it came with breakfast. Well worth it.

1

London, UK

    • Covent Garden
      London WC2E 8BE, UK
      In the summer there are tons of buskers and the kids love it. Nice place to chill when jet lagged as well!
      • Jamie's Italian Covent Garden
        11 Upper St Martin's Ln, London WC2H 9FB, UK
        Reasonable good food and right in the heart of Covent garden. They were quite accommodating with the kids.
        • London Transport Museum
          Covent Garden Piazza, London WC2E 7BB, UK
          One of the best museums in London for years. Very interactive for the kids and my wife and I enjoyed as well. Right in Covent gardens so easy to way to spend the afternoon.
Day
2

London, UK

    • City Cruises Tower Pier
      Tower Millennium Pier, Lower Thames St, London EC3N 4DT, UK
      A fun way to see London with the kids (or anyone!). You can hop on and off at different locations. The guide was great and funny!
      • Tower of London
        St Katharine's & Wapping, London EC3N 4AB, UK
        Lots to see for everyone. My daughter loved the crown jewels and my boys loved the armour and swords. Can easily spend an afternoon here. We hopped off the Thames river cruise and then took the boat back.
        • Pret A Manger
          132 Brompton Rd, Knightsbridge, London SW3 1HY, UK
          Easy meal for lunch or dinner - here and Eat are the healthiest and most affordable in london
Day

London, UK

    • Buckingham Palace
      Westminster, London SW1A 1AA, UK
      In the summer this amazing place opens up for all tourists. I really wasn't sure I was going to enjoy - but they do a great job of explaining everything and the video of them preparing for a royal state dinner was crazy! A must in the summer.
      • Eat
        8-9 Vigo St, Mayfair, London W1S 3DU, UK
        Same as Pret - easy good and healthy lunch with the kids

      Houses of Parliament, Westminster, London SW1A 0AA, UK
      Also in the summer the house opens for tours. i took my 11 year old - was really cool to sit in both chambers and the guide was incredible - another really cool place to visit in the summer
      • Victoria and Albert Museum
        Cromwell Rd, Knightsbridge, London SW7 2RL, UK
        My wife took the other two kids when i was at the Commons. similar to transport, another amazing museum to visit and good for kids

          11 Henrietta St, London WC2E 8PY, UK
