My goodness. We really packed it in during our little family trip to London. Here’s a list of what we fit in:
We rode around on a double-decker bus tour to get an overview of the city.
We took a ferry up the Thames from Big Ben to the London Tower.
The older kids saw Shakespeare’s Alls Well That Ends Well at the Globe Theatre.
We rode the London Eye.
We visited Big Ben.
We got familiar with the London Underground.
We saw the final Harry Potter movie on opening night at Leicester Square.
We took Afternoon Tea at The Orangery at Kensington Palace.
We went shopping at Hamleys.
We swam at the hotel.
We saw the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace.
We met up with our brother-in-law (and Shakespeare Professor), Bruce Young.
We shopped at Liberty of London.
We saw the White Cliffs of Dover.
We toured the Tower of London.
And we walked through lots of rain! rain! rain!
P.S. — Note to self: next time, pack wellies.
