Places to go in London with kids aged 13, 11 and 7

Going to London for 4 days and looking for good places to go with a 13 year old girl, an 11 year old boy, and a 7 year old girl. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Get a good guidebook and let them choose. I like DK Eyewitness Travel London. If everyone participates, no one feels "dragged around."

The Launch Pad at the Science Museum in Exhibition Road, South Kensington is great for kids of those ages.

We visited London last year with our daughters who were 13 and 6. We were there for 10 days so were able to see quite a bit. Favourites were probably The London Eye, our Harry Potter tour, attending the theatre, a cruise to Greenwich and, believe it or not, riding the tube. They also enjoyed Westminster Abbey, St. Paul's, and The Tower of London. I have a full description of what our family did in London on my travel blog if you would like to take a look - www.gonewiththefamily.typepad.com

It's one of the most often asked questions on here, try 'London with kids' on the search box and you will find lots of threads with some good suggestions.

You problem will be finding somewhere that the girls and boy will all enjoy, especially given their age range. The girls might love the Victoria and Albert museum, for example, the lad might find it mind numbingly boring. There's no easy answer to that.
