Child photographing the London Eye from a tour bus


Photo by Alfredo De Simone

If your children are anything like mine, they known much about London. They've seen it on screen from Harry Potter to Peter Pan. They've pictured it through books from The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle to A Bear Called Paddington by Michael Bond. What's more, they've learned lots about London in school. They know which London attractions they want to see and how they want to tour the city. And incredibly enough, they know what they want to eat. They know that Buckingham Palace is the Queen's home in London. They know that Tower Bridge, not London Bridge, is London's iconic symbol. They know that Beefeaters guard the Tower of London. They know that the London Eye is no giant ferris wheel. They know that the Rosetta Stone is housed in the British Museum. They known Camden Market is a fĂȘte of shops, stalls and eateries. They know that Harrods is no regular store. They know much about the English penchant for fish and chips and afternoon tea. They are quick to advise that London has more Indian restaurants than Mumbai or Delhi. They are quick to note that the Changing of the Guard is a must see, riding an open-top bus is a must do, and that Big Ben, black cabs and red telephone booths are must photographs. What better place than London for kids to play tour guide and help plan a family vacation?
