Being from a small town in North Wales large cities have always factor daunting but having been to London a couple of times this year and have realised it’s not actually that big and scary!
Whenever I look at creating an itinerary for London I only factor in the tube if it’s really necessary – by this I mean that a lot of ‘tourist’ attractions are within walking distance from one another. Like all of the below:
Of course, you will want to get the underground to a station that’s initially nearby and I would suggest Piccadilly Circus.
From your starting point you can then make your way to Trafalgar Sq., and then make your way along The Mall to Buckingham Palace and Hyde Park. If you then head to St. James Park – the other side of The Mall – you’ll eventually come to Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament. Once you’ve taken in the amazing architecture it’s a walk over Westminster bridge to the London Eye. Along Southbank there’s a lot for families to enjoy and plenty of places for refreshments.
Although, this is only a small part of London it’s a great itinerary for half a day (if you’re a quick walker) or a full day to get your bearings
From the London Eye we headed to Waterloo station and took the Jubilee line to Tower Hill to see the Tower of London.
This worked for us, next step is paying for the experiences.
