I'm coming to London on Tuesday with the 2ds's - we are going to the Science Museum to see the Hitchhikers Guide exhibition, and dd and her mate are coming too but obviously don't want to spend the day with us.
Any suggestions for what they should do, where they should go? They are on a limited budget.
i suggest they go to covent garden piazza to (window)shop - great range of shops there within a small area. usually some kind of street entertainment too. they could then wander down to somerset house and have a look at the fountains and the art exhibitions if they are interested. then they could walk over the bridge to the south bank - london aquarium, london eye, tate modern, globe theatre etc.
London is so exciting when you're 16 - I used to love coming up on the train from SE London and getting off at Charing Cross and being engulfed by exciting, and sometimes, strange people and fab shops. Didn't need any money, just wandered, looking! Leicester Square, Covent Garden, The Strand, Piccadilly.
free london suggestions and the obvious touristy ones. Don't know if 'The London Pass' is any good - their transport advice looks sensible. Could spend a day in each of the museums if you like them. London eye is worth the money imho. And if all else fails, Harrods will keep them occupied :-). Hope you have a good day.
