I'll be in London for literally 24 hours next week with my 3 children - 2 x 6 year olds and a 2 year old. We're going to squeeze the London Eye in the evening, and then we have the following day there (need to be back at Euston by about 4pm) - we'll be staying close to Wimbledon.
Any suggestions as to what we can do? Was thinking of a whistle stop tour of the Natural History Museum but any suggestions welcome.
The Nhm is perfect. I took my little sisters to both museums a few years ago and Nhm won hands down. Take a pack lunch or pick up something on the way though as the food is very expensive and there aren't many alternatives.
If the weather is really nice I would head to one of the parks.
If it is a warm day, you can't do better than a trip to the V&A. They have backpacks in the Sackler Wing, which have great art projects and puzzles to do perfect for the 6 year olds - they also have sound blocks with animals on them for the 2 year old to play with. After that, if you take bathers or a change of clothes, it has one of the best paddling pools in London. You can eat on the grass next to the water and the shop has great jewelry!
