The Tower of London
London | Tours and Sightseeing
Great day out
5
The tower of london is so imposing and the kids really enjoyed our recent visit here. We had a half price entry ticket with our tube ticket so that saved quite a lot of money. The crown jewels are a must see, they are breath taking and the way they are laid out is very good and easy for you to see. The white tower has some fantastic stuff on show including henry the 8's armor and a gallery full of beautiful carved wooden full sized horses. The bloody tower is interesting too, but quite cramped so visit it on a cooler day, as the ques are always quite long to get in and it does get quite stuffy and hot. The restaurant is a bit pricey but you can take food with you if you are going for the whole day, so much to see here you will need to stay a while to see it all.

What an imposing and truly beautiful palace this is. Full of our history and still home to the royal family. As you walk through the park towards the palace it comes in to view and its superb. There are always lots of people outside waiting to catch a glimpse of some one royal and peering through the bars to see the guards men. The royal mews can be visited too and you can get a ticket that allows you to re visit during the same year with out paying another entrance fee. The inside of the palace can only be visited at certain times of the year, so you do need to check this before you go. You will not be able to see the whole of the interior. Do go you will enjoy a visit here.

KFC

Well if you want some thing quick and do not mind that it is a bit greasy and full of hidden calories then kfc is for you. The chips here are never as good as the mcdonalds ones, always a bit too soggy, why I do not know. But the pop corn chicken is good, and the wraps are nice when freshly made. The value for money is ok, but the food is some times a bit hit and miss. Not really very good if you are a non meat eater though as chicken is what you get. Not sure if I really like it, so having been a couple of times, I ask my self why bother. still some people love the stuff and it can get busy.

McDonald's
London | American Restaurants
well it is mcdonalds

Ok what can I say, the place is pretty average, some times you can go in and its nice and clean but other times it really needs sorting out. It offers the usual menu that you expect and the quality of the take away food that there is on offer does vary a lot. Sometimes the food is all freshly cooked and as junk food goes is ok, other times it really has been sitting there for too long and is not so good. Why keep going back, well thats easy, some times no matter how bad it all is for you, you just want a fast food meal and this is the one we all love. You know what to expect. But we all love a burger.

superb

This place is so beautiful both the outside and the inside and is a great venue. There is lots of info on the website about forth coming events so you can plan your visit. It is not just for classical stuff like opera and the proms, the schedule of events is so varied you will surely find some thing to go see. Since the place opened there have been over 150,000 performances. There are 13 bars and a 3 of places to eat too, you can also pre order food or drink for the boxes. You can also go on one of the daily tours and see and learn things you would not normally be able to. Tickets for the royal philharmonic current performances are priced quite well so book up and don't miss out.

Sherlocks home

We always wanted to visit this place ok so he was not real, but who cares, its great to see. Easy to find and great to tell your friends that you have been.
Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson were supposed to have lived in a Victorian lodging house at 221b Baker Street between 1881-1904, in the stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. They got in to many scrapes and solved many crimes too.
It is open as a museum dedicated to the life of Sherlock Holmes, and the interior has been made to look exactly as it was written in the published stories.
The famous study overlooking Baker Street that has been in so many films. Visitors can sit in Mr Holmes’s armchair by the fireside to pose for photos, and see his bedroom adjoining the study. His things are in their usual places: his deerstalker, magnifying glass, pipe, violin, chemistry stuff, notebook and disguises, kids will enjoy it if they have seen any of the films that have been on the tv.

Tate
London | Art Galleries
Very popular

Ok so we all wanted to see what all the fuss was about. 5 must admit the place did not disapoint. we walked across the fantastic millenium bridge to get there and the place was full of happy people getting close to art. when we visitied there was an exhibit that was made of metal, hanging from the roof that you were able to walk through and that was superb, some of the andy warhols are really quite tacky looking in the flesh, but are a must see, like the huge elvis piece. The cafe was over priced and so full we did not bother. Would we go again yes, although it is not really great for very small kids but there were still loads there when we went.

Victoria & Albert Museum
London | Museums
A must see
4
The Victoria & Albert museum is in beautiful South Kensington, london and is one of the greatest museums of art and design that we have visited with the family. The museums collections are unrivalled because of their diversity. You will be able to look around and discover around 3000 years' worth of amazing stuff. Most of the world's richest cultures are represented here. you will see collections of ceramics, furniture, fashion, glass, jewellery, metalwork, photographs, sculpture, textiles and paintings. It is truly breath taking and well worth a visit. There are also free guided tours which we went on and they are roughly every hour at half past the hour. This is a wonderful day out more for adults than kids though.

learning is fun

The science museum is such a great family day out it never fails to please. The free entry is great too. The section which shows all the space items is cool, the kids just could not believe their eyes and it kept them awe struck for ages. The launch pad is always full to the brim with screaming happy kids all playing with the hands on science stuff. Even we adults had a go, naughty, but we are all just big kids at heart. There is a cafe, which is ok, but not cheap, but hey you do not pay to get in so it works out ok in the end. The natural history museum is close by so if you are feeling brave, see them both.

The natural history museum is fab, all our kids love it and spend many happy hours there all for free. The gallaries are very interesting and the hands on exhibitions are great too. The dinosaur section used to be free but now a small entrance fee does apply if you want to see it all and most kids are not happy till they do. There is a cafe so you can sit and relax over a much needed cup of tea before heading off again to check out all the cool stuff, you should go and spend the day here it is well worth a trip, even the outside of the building is interesting and very beautiful.
