We're bringing our five year old up to great Ormond street for 4pm appointment and would like to make a day of it for him without tiring him out (chemo). Is this age appropriate, and would he be able to keep up? (He goes to school, is fairly energetic, just lacks stamina) . We're just not sure what best London tour would be, and we'd love him to see Buckingham palace, changing of guard etc that he's read in his Paddington books. Thanks x

It is a lot of walking but there is a lot of stopping for information talks along the way which would t hold a 4yr olds attention. However the guide we had -Amber was fab and could direct you on ahead of the group to get the ground covered without pressure. You do get a great view of the guards on horse back, marching soldiers and band coming out at st James palace. Again you could go on ahead down the mall ahead of the crowd to avoid the fast walking to keep up with them to get to the palace. It’s crowded at the buckingham palace end but worth it. I’d be lifting him up in arms a bit I’d say! Good luck.
