We explored the city of London earlier this year and the kiddies loved it. London is a regular holiday destination for us as we lived there before and we have lots of family and friends around the city. The city is full of life and I love exploring all that it brings. It is too much of a busy city for me to live in but holidaying there works great as there are lots to see and do. Plus getting there is easy for us as we love a good old train ride every now and again. There is a quick train to Gatwick airport to London Victoria, so we can easily get to the city of fun.
If you are thinking of exploring London, here are some great places to visit in London –
Buckingham Palace is one place to visit when you are exploring London City. We visited Buckingham Palace this April and we loved it. It was fun to see the palace up close and the guards were fun to watch as well. The kiddies love it but were disappointed they didn’t get to see the Queen 😊
Get on a London Bus
Getting on a London Tour Bus is great for those visiting the city for the first time. The buses take you round the popular spots in the city and tell you all about the history behind every tourist attraction. It is a nice way to see the city but if you can’t get on any of the tour buses, you can easily see some parts of the city by popping on a regular London bus. That is what we did after exploring Buckingham Palace. We got a London Bus from the city centre and that took us to a different side of London.
The twins loved it as they were reading about London school and were thrilled to get on a London Red Bus. The best part for them was sitting on the top deck. That was the highlight of the day for them. Kids do love the littlest things.
Big Ben was a must for us too as the kiddies have read about it and wanted to see it in real life. Our tour of the city was more of an educational tour. It was based on all what they have read about London at school and it was fun for us the grownups to see the city through their eyes. The view was perfect. Big Ben is definitely a spot to explore if you plan on being around the area.
I loved our time in the London Eye. It was a lot of fun and I cannot wait to get on it again. London Eye is definitely a must if you want to really be a tourist in London. It is worth visiting for sure.
Madame Tussauds is another great spot in London to visit. The wax museum is filled up with popular faces and the kids (especially my daughter) love taking photos with them.
