London Life

So- I have decided to enter a competition to see if I can win My Little Family a trip to the Big City!   A Five Star break at The Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington – Wow – it looks amazing -take a look!

If we had two whole days in the City, what would we do?  We have never been to London as a family before, occasionally for work, but never for play, and never with the Children!

Our starting point would be a bit of Culture.  The Victoria and Albert Museum.  There are some marvellous looking exhibitions on at The Museum of Childhood and plenty of interactive fun and craft.  Oh, and I can’t pretend not to be a teeny bit excited at the prospect of seeing the Alexander McQueen exhibition.

A spot of lunch and a trip to Hamleys Toy Store for a special treat would follow.   We would then head to the London Aquatics Centre!  My husband is in awe of the place and we could have a family swim and maybe try the inflatable assault course before having a wander through the Olympic Park.

A trip to the West End would be just wonderful.  A family show , I think.  While I would love to see Lord of the Dance, it is more likely to be The Lion King!

After a Good Nights Sleep in our fabulous Hotel, we would head to the Tower of London – somewhere to feed the Little Ones imagination and a bit of history thrown in too.  I would Love to see The Crown Jewels, I have always had a little obsession with them!

My Family would love the London Transport Museum, lots to see and do and looks very family friendly. We have major ‘bus love’ in our house!

If the Sun was shining on us, we would head to Victoria Park to soak up the atmosphere and have a relax.  The children would just love the Kids Fountain Playground.

As for the Warner Brothers Studio Tour of Harry Potter, well,  we would have to magic up a bit of extra time for that I think!

If our trip sounds a little, well, geographically challenged, it probably is!  We don’t know London very well – but if you can’t dream on your holiday – when can you?!
