Hi everyone, I'm new to this area forum. We're going to London for bank holiday weekend in May and I could do with as much advice and tips as possible! We're travelling with a 7yr old, 2yr old and a buggy! We only have one full day in the city itself so we want to make the most of it.
First plan is to do the London Eye, we have merlin passes. We're aiming to get there for around 9.30am and do it as early as possible. Is this recommended?
Then I thought we'd walk across to Big Ben. From here we'd like to go to Buckingham Palace. Is this walking distance?
From Buckingham Palace we'd like to go to Rainforest Cafe for lunch, again walking distance or transport needed?
After lunch we want to go to Hamleys then back down towards the Thames. We've been to many sealife centres, is the London one worth a visit?
We want to get back to Waterloo for around 5.30pm. The train ticket we are looking at says one day travelcard included - does this cover the tube?
Any other recommendations or suggestions? Thanks!
