Hi Guys, This itinerary includes a bit of shopping for trendy teens and toy lovers; some culture and theatre and, finally, a bit of history. Enjoy…love Emily x
Take the tube to Oxford Circus and down to Carnaby St which is great for trendy teens. Mum and Dad might want to pop into Liberty as you walk straight past it but I wouldn’t say it’s a particularly kid-friendly shop.
Piccadilly Circus is a 5 minute stroll and whatever the weather you’ll want to pose for a great London photo opportunity. Then head to Rupert St for a choice of Yo Sushi or Ed’s Diner. or, if you like your themed restaurants, Bubba Gump and and TGI Fridays are close by too.
You could venture in to Leicester Square on your way to Trafalgar Square. If you do, pop into M&M World. They actually waft the smell of chocolate around the shop so be careful not to start drooling.
When you get to Trafalgar Square you can check out the National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery which are both FREE to visit. Oh and don’t forget Nelson’s Column is down in Trafalgar Square so there’s another great photo op to be had.
Or you could head back to Piccadilly Circus and visit Ripley’s Believe It or Not. Make sure you do the Mirror Maze. It’s loads of fun.
Chinatown is the perfect place for an evening meal and then you’re in the heart of Theatreland, so perfect if you’re interested in seeing a West End Show. Make sure you book with us and you’ll get the best price possible.
Chinatown is located right next to Theatreland where all the West End shows are. So once you’ve chowed down on some chow mein, why not go a see some world class theatre. Check out our top five West End shows here.
Take a City Cruise down the Thames from Westminster to the Tower of London. You’ll learn loads about the city from the great live commentary on board.
Once you’re at the Tower of London, brave the queues and go inside. Here you can learn all about the bloodiest bits of London’s history. If sparkly things are more your thing, then you can also see the Crown Jewels, provided you’re brave enough to queue for a second time.
Have lunch down near the Tower – Wagamamas is quick and simple or grab a sandwich from Pret a Manger. Then take a 10 minute walk to the world’s most famous bridge – Tower Bridge. The exhibition is great and includes the glass walkway and Engine Rooms.
