Located in the south-east of the UK, England’s capital city of London has a population of 9,304,000 and is the perfect place for a family trip. With a breath-taking skyline filled with iconic monuments such as the London Eye, Big Ben and the Tower of London, there is no shortage of things to do in London.
While the county of Greater London reaches up to 45 miles out from the centre, the City of London itself only covers 1.1 square miles. Worry not though, as the city is busy and packed with theatres, museums, shops, galleries and much more. It’s easy to hop on a bus or the London Underground with just a swipe of your contactless card, and you will be instantly whisked to anywhere you wish, from London Zoo to Buckingham Palace.
With a wide variety of cafes, hotels and restaurants in London to choose from, you’ll never be short of a place to stop off for a snack. The numerous museums, including the National Gallery, the British Museum and the Tate to name a few, all have specialised children’s activities for combined fun and learning, and kids can even visit Hamleys, the UK’s most famous toy store on Regent Street. With so much to do and see, a day out in London is guaranteed fun for the whole family.
