If you and your kids are at all interested in the military then London is a great place to visit. There are loads of museums and sights to see with a military twist.
Start your military London day out at 10am in Trafalgar Square which of course celebrates the Battle of Trafalgar and make sure you grab a photo either by the fountains, on the steps leading to the galleries or posing by one of the lions at the base of Nelson’s Column.
After this walk down Whitehall towards the Houses of Parliament stopping off at the Household Cavalry Museum to pose with a mounted guard. Or catch the Changing of the Guard at Horse Guards Parade which takes place at 11am or 10am on Sundays (check website for details).
Cutting through to Horse Guards Rd you’ll find St James’ Park which is a great place to stop and have a picnic lunch if the weather is good.
After this you’ll be ready to visit the Churchill War Rooms which are situated in a bunker under the Government Buildings. This is a must for any kids studying the Second World War at school. Not only have the war rooms been lovingly recreated, there is also a museum down there dedicated to Winston Churchill so definitely allow yourself a couple of hours.
You may be worn out by now but if you’re still in the mood for more things military head south to Lambeth and the Imperial War Memorial Museum. This is another place you can spend hours exploring. make sure you visit the stunning new First World War Galleries which were opened in 2014 to mark the centenary of The Great War.
