ok.... we live in the sticks.... the last time I went to london and went on the tube it was to see a boyfriend pre-children.... so bear with me! my soon to be 7 yr old would like to go the science museum in london for his birthday. we may take 3 of his friends. money is tight so I'm trying to work out the cheapest way. I've been told that just as long as they look under 10 you can just take them through the barriers and not buy them a ticket..... is this right?? It seems to good to be true and I dont want to try it and have an angry ticket person to deal with many thanks london peeps L
The only nuisance with free travel for children is that obviously you can't get through the normal ticket barriers with them, you have to go for the one with a bigger gate and a staff member to open it for you, which can slow things down a bit. Buses are free too.
