- Plan your visit. Have a rough idea of what you want to do & order. We knew we were visiting the Tower of London so I found a hotel within a few minutes walk from there.

- Don't worry. I thought the children might find the rush & tube daunting but they were totally unfazed.
- Rest. There's so much to do you can have the tendency to squeeze everything in but this just results in tired/grumpy children & no fun for anyone.
- Premier Inn offer free breakfasts for children & have loads of locations with family rooms. We stayed at London Bank (Tower) hotel.
- If you are able stay on a Sunday most hotels offer a better rate on this day.
- A hop on hop off bus is a good way to see lots in a short space of time and save tired little legs.

- Check for voucher codes at restaurants. We went to Zizzi and saved £15 with an offer on their own website. Can definitely recommend great kids menu and lovely food.
- Rememeber there's loads of free activities. Hyde park with the Diana memorial fountion, play area and Serpentine. The National history museum, Museum of London Docklands, The science museum, for Harry Potter fans visit Platform 9 3/4 at King's Cross Station. Visit Covent Garden to see the street performers and watch the Changing the Guard ceremony outside Buckingham Palace or simply stroll around taking in the sites,my son was thrilled to see Big Ben in real life.
