Its now less than two weeks till we go on our family adventure to London. We have booked everything we need and everything is planned. All of us are really excited. We have spent lots of time on the laptop looking for what to do in London and because it’s so big it’s took some organising to cram everything in.
The kids made a little bucket list of things they wanted to do after we asked the question what to do in London? They knew we wouldn’t be able to do everything but it gave us a starting point to start looking.
There lists consisted of some of the below:
Buckingham Palace – They joked about could they actually meet the Queen.
London Eye (only Jack though Kaitlin hates heights)
An open top bus tour
Downing Street (Jack wants to meet the priminister)
Primark (Kaitlin want to go shopping)
A theatre show
And there was loads more. They had basically scoured the internet and wanted to do everything. We had to be realistic and below is our plan for the weekend. We have room to change things and go with the flow not everything is booked to a time slot.
Use the underground to get to our hostel and also round London
Visit Leicester Square (Lego Shop and M&M on the top of list)
Mooch around and get some food, with a walk down Southbank after tea. (hoping to see some street performers)
The Original Tour bus around London looking at all the sites from the open top bus. (this way we can see lots of the thing the kids mentioned above. The buses also have audio on some routes which will be great for the kids and save them asking us every two minutes what’s that building mum)
The boat ride from Tower of London back to Westminster which you get as part of the package with the The original Tour
Sky Garden at Fenchurch street to see the views and maybe grab a cocktail or mocktail. You have to book this in advance I would recommend checking what day they come out as they book up fast.
We are off to review KidZania which is a 4 hour experience before travelling hime sunday tea time. The kids are super excited about this part of our trip. Even Kaitlin is impressed with what she has seen on reviews and the website itself.
What is Kidzania? Well I took this small extract from the website but there is so much more on the website itself so take a look at KidZania for yourself and make sure you come back and see what we thought of it.
Have your kids ever dreamt of becoming a pilot, a firefighter, or the next award-winning singer? Watch the excitement on their faces as they choose which activities they wish to try out of more than 60 real life role-play activities in the bank, on stage or fighting crime on the streets as a police officer! Each role-play experience is crafted to teach kids essential life skills including financial literacy, team work and independence.
Make sure you watch out for posts on all our social channels whilst we are in London and please do come back to see what we have been up to and what we thought about our trip.
If you have any suggestions of what to do in London please do leave us a comment down below. Just in case we have time to squeeze anything else in. Also looking for great eating places so any recommendation would be wonderful,
