Recommended by Kidadlers, Gabby says, "Took my boys ages 10 and 13 to the London Bridge experience and London tombs today and it was brilliant! Too scary for younger ones, but fantastic for older kids," says Gabby.
There are loads of brilliant family attractions near to the London Bridge Experience. Take a Kidadler recommendation - Debbie says, "We went to the Golden Hinde, which was very interesting but also very short. So, we wandered down towards the Tate Modern but decided to take the Thames Clipper towards London eye and Westminster. We had a great day!"
