  1. My husband and I have not been to visit London since my son was born four and a half years ago. We are looking forward to when we do as there is so much to do for a family.

  2. We have not long come back from a week in London with our daughters. We had a fabulous time. We visited The National Gallery, Buckingham Palace (my daughter’s were amazed at how big and stunning it is inside!), The V&A, The British Museum, Westminster Abbey, went to see Wicked, went on a Duck Tour, the Tower of London and went on the London Eye! We had an amazing week!

  3. I took my daughter to London for a day trip about 4 years ago – we absolutely loved the Duck Tours! She still talks about it to this day, it was definitely the highlight of our visit. I’d really like to take both kids again, and go and watch Matilda at the theatre.
