3 of London’s Neighborhoods Up-close.
I love London’s contrasts, historic & modern, wet but warm & friendly. There’s reminders of past wars, yet such peaceful parks and gardens to enjoy. The street markets, the Shakespeare plays, and the multitude of famous buildings all hold on to the past while shaping our today and catapulting us into tomorrow’s grand adventure.
Churchill War Rooms & the Imperial War Museum are what’s in store in the Lambeth neighborhood. Head to Lambeth Palace Gardens or the street markets for a memorable meal. If you are still wanting more, the Tate-Britain is a great art museum housing many collections of London’s greatest art. The London for Families City Guide will help you choose just the right activities for your family.
More theatre, history and art galleries! Spend your money wisely and you can stay within budget and still see a Shakespearean play at The Globe Theatre, enjoy the street markets & and experience some world renowned art. If that’s too much like “school” for your gang, head to the rock climbing wall, the skate park or rent rollerblades. That should keep the kiddos happy!
The London for Families City Guide has all the details on plays, galleries and rollerblade rental to keep your active family engaged while taking in the city’s sites.
City of London
This is the heart of London. It could easily gobble up your entire London budget before you can say “Keep Calm and Carry On!” There are loads of tourist attractions that will vy for your attention. Some are worth it. Some not. Save your hard earned cash for things like The Tower of London, and stay on budget by heading for St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Museum of London or The Street Museum’s walking tour. I’ve got all the details for you in the London for Families City Guide.
