We was in June in England and we had just one single day for London. This was the first time for our kids to visit London, so we promise them a whole-day of sightseeing tour. We didn’t have time (this time) to go to some first picks like British Museim or Natural History Museum, but choose to combine shopping and long walk through the city.
We came with the tube to Leicester Square and showed kids all Cinemas and the walked to Oxford Street where we spend some time in shopping. Maybe too much time…:
Next stop was toy store Hamleys in Regent Street where we needed to really check all floors and all departmends. That means all LEGOs, everything connected with Harry Potter and all Video games.
Later we continue with shopping in Carnaby Street where we stopped for lunch in a small restaurant.
We promised kids to find a bookstore and we found a big one – Bookstore Waterstones. Well, they enjoyed here.
This was final stop concerning shopping and now we was focused only on sightseeing with only few more hours of daylight ahead.
We walked through Picadilly Circus, Westminster and crossed the Thames near London Eye. We walked at the Promenade all the way to the Tower Bridge passing the Globe, the Shard, and later going by the Tower and finishing on the dinner at Wagamama.
Kids were exhausted but they can keep asking “when will we go again to London?”.
