On one of our trips to London during the summer holidays we were a bit stuck for ideas of what to do, having already spent a week there not too long beforehand. One of our favourite restaurants is around the corner from the British Museum though so we thought we would combine the two for an afternoon. This place is huge though so I wanted to share some tips for visiting the British Museum with children.
This summer we spent nearly a whole week staying in Greenwich on a trip to London, somewhere we had never been before. I was so surprised at how much there was to do there and especially as a family. Actually, there was so much to do that we missed out on a lot, including the planetarium.
London can be an expensive city to visit, especially if you are going as a family and want to pack in loads of activities. Luckily there are loads of free museums to enjoy, including the Science Museum, which is one of my personal favourites. Thinking about a trip there soon? You’ll find tips for visiting the London Science Museum with children in this post as well as some of our favourite sections.
When we started planning our trip to London in August and our stay in Greenwich, we didn’t really know what there was to do or what would be suitable for Erin. However, we found that actually, there was a lot to do and a lot of great museums to visit, including the National Maritime Museum.
During the summer we had a 5 night break in London and were based in Greenwich. Initially, we had 3 nights booked at Staycity Greenwich High Road but we wanted to extend our stay and the Premier Inn Greenwich came up at a great price.
For the longest time Erin has been asking to go to the London Eye. It was something we were supposed to do in 2020 but for obvious reasons we weren’t able to get to London. Instead we made something that was a must do on a trip to London this summer.
This summer we stayed in London for 5 nights, staying in Greenwich. I had a booking with Staycity rearranged from 2020 and we chose to stay at Staycity Greenwich High Road for the last 3 nights of our visit to London.
In August we visited London for a huge 5 nights and although a lot of our time was spent in Greenwich we also wanted to do some things in central London. Somewhere that opened up to the public this year for the first time was The Garden at Buckingham Palace so I thought this would be a really nice place to visit.
