London With Kids Sample Itinerary

London With Kids Sample Itinerary

Here is a sample itinerary for seeing the best London has to offer with your kids. It pairs adult activities like museums with kid activities like parks. There’s also tons of sites that everyone will enjoy! With younger kids, slow down, stay longer, and take naps between activities. If you have teens or just adults you can go a bit faster.

The “must-do” activities are in the first three days while subsequent days delve deeper into local life in the city. Focus on enjoying each place instead of getting it all in. The awesome thing about people who travel with kids is that it usually means you are a lifelong adventurer. Travel like you’ll return because you probably will!
