Looking for ideas of places I can take my ds 14. We have got the day to ourselves (usually his younger siblings are around so he gets left out) so what to use this day to spend time together. His not big on museums as such like science or history museum as we have been there countless times. Any places you can recommend in London.

Cutty sark- any good

We liked the Cutty Sark, although mine were bit younger. Boat ride down the Thames is fun (get the Clipper, which is just like a bus rather than tourist trip).

Just asked my eldest - he says he likes the National, the Tate, but mostly eating! He'd spend all day mooching from cafe to restaurant if he could...

Have you been to the Greenwich stuff? He enjoyed the observatory when we went.

We have never been Greenwich considering its not too far from us. Will definitely check it out. Thank you

Went to Greenwich the other day. Thames Clipper from pier near the London Eye was fun. Didn't go onto Curry Sark as seemed pricey and you can see much of it from outside. Did Maritime Museum and Greenwich Park (climbed up hill to observatory for good view). Found out when we got home that there is a tunnel that goes under the Thames to Isle of Dogs. It's free and you pick it up from next to Cutty Sark (saw the entrance, a dome like building, but didn't know what it was!). Wish we'd done that too!

If you're going by train, you can get 2 for 1 vouchers for attractions. comes in a booklet with loads of fun touristy things to do, London Dungeons was good.
