Big Ben, London

Photo by Alfredo De Simone

A family holiday in England is as much about Big Ben, double-decker buses and afternoon tea as it is about standing stones, rights of way and royalty. Start a trip in London, England's cosmopolitan capital, and let the kids plan the visit. Photograph the great clock known as Big Ben. Journey round the world at the British Museum. Take an open-top bus tour. Ride the London Eye. See the Changing of the Guard. Eat curry and fish and chips. Enjoy afternoon tea. Travel beyond the big city and explore the country poetically known as Albion. Visit Windsor Castle. Reward tolerant tots with a day at Legoland. See the cathedral town of Canterbury. Stroll the streets of Oxford. Experience offbeat Brighton. Take to the trail in the Cotswolds or West Country - Devon, Summerset and Cornwall. Track time from Stonehenge to Bath. Traveling with literary teens? Chart the Hardy Trail from Dorchester to Weymouth. Immerse yourself in Shakespeare in Stratford-upon-Avon. Read Wordsworth out loud in the Lake District. Follow in the footsteps of Sherlock Holmes. Discover Dickens' London and the London of Oscar Wilde.
