Leaving this Friday - London Itin. feedback with kids and questions

After much back and forth, we have decided to forge ahead and continue with our trip to UK this Friday =D =O
Can you please provide feedback on my itinerary, I am not really sure about the Sat/Sunday days. Also FYI I will be travelling with my husband and 4 kids (4, 8, 13, 15). Thanks a bunch! Time to finish my packing!

Some questions:

  1. I am not sure which day trip we should take on Saturday, do you all have any recommendations? I originally thought Oxford but would that be enjoyable for all the kids?
  2. do people use Uber in London? I am trying to figure out how to get to Harry Potter, and I think I want to avoid public transportation. Are there any other cab rental companies at a decent price?
  3. Are there any reccs for cream tea in Covent Garden? I think that might be a good compromise to an $$$ aft tea experience
