Discover how the whole family--especially the kids--can enjoy London: from scaling the ramparts of the Tower of London or clambering aboard a vintage tram at the Transport Museum, to visiting dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum or floating above the city in the London Eye.
This child-oriented guide is organized around "hubs"--major sights around which to plan your day--and gives child-friendly eating options, age-range suitability info, places for letting off steam, detailed maps, and activities for rainy days, all approached from a family-friendly angle. Plus there are Kids' Corners in every chapter with cartoons, quizzes, and games to keep young travelers happy all day long.
"These books are packed with suggestions for kid-friendly restaurants, outdoor spots where travelin' tots can run free, rainy day fun, and more. They also offer tips for engaging your child's mind and sense of wonder at every stop." – Scholastic Parent & Child
"What…makes this series unusual is the attention to detail. Yes, all the big sights are here, but even the famous places are given a slight twist — always with children and their parents in mind." – Chicago Tribune
"For families traveling with young people, it's hard to do better than this handsomely illustrated guide, which is arranged geographically and notable for its focus on family friendly activities." – Library Journal
is the Price of Entry usually 50 pounds ($75) which can only mean per family????? There is no explanation the admission price, some places like
the National Art Gallery are free I believe. On this failing I rate it 3out of 5. Hope the publishers take note.
It has all the usual features, including excellent maps and diagrams. There are excellent colour photographs breaking up the text columns, so you can see what you are looking for. It is a handy up-to-date guidebook. This particular series of guides is intended to show travellers the child-friendly aspects of this city, and is ideal for planning or guiding a family holiday.
