We’ll be spring breaking in London with our 3 kids (8, 6, 3) in a month and a half, meeting up with my brother and sister-in-law for the weekend. We rented an apartment in Westminster and plan on taking the tube/buses (taxis in a pinch). The idea plan is to eat breakfast and some dinners at the flat as we are managing food allergies and picky eaters.
Rough Itinerary – Subject to being thrown out based on weather and kids temperament, not to mention suggestions!
Mon – arrive early … Buckingham Palace, St James Park, National Gallery
Tue – Kensington Palace, Park, Harrods, Kids Bus Ride
Wed – ½ day trip to Windsor, ideally a kid friendly West End show
Thu – British museum, Covet Garden, Tea (if we can find an allergy friendly option)
Fri – visiting friends
Sat – Camden Market, boat to Kew and gardens
Sun – Westminster Abbey, Tower, boat trip to Greenwich
Mon - leaving
• Neighborhood strolls – Soho, South Kensington (my old hood), West End, City, Regent Street, etc
• ½ day trip to Canterbury or Hampton Court
• Science Museum, Transport Museum, Zoo
• London Eye (if I can convince a skittish youngster)
Our goal is less to hit a bunch of sights, than share cool ones with our kids. Thanks in advance for suggestions!
