|The Tower of London|
I have just spent the last weekend in London with my family. It is the first time that my youngest son has been, so he was very excited. We had a grand plan of what we would visit, but we abandoned that almost as soon as we arrived. Our first stop was the Science Museum, which we all loved. There is just so much to do, but what they loved most was the Launch Pad area with all the hands on science activities. Considering it was a Saturday, and half term, it wasn't too busy.
From there we walked to Harrods and up a tiny staircase in the corner of the entrance to the food hall to the fourth floor which is where the toys are (every conceivable toy imaginable). I bought both my boys Harrod teddy bears.
On Sunday, we had a tube free day, because the underground is not always the best option, and we walked from Tower Bridge along the southern path of the River Thames first to HMS Belfast, then right on round to the London Eye, stopping at Gabriel's Wharf for lunch. The queue for the Eye was long but seemed to go very quickly. It was much better than I expected, although it would have been even better if there were fewer people in it with us!
This morning, our first stop was Hamleys and then through St James Park to Buckingham Palace where they were changing the guard. Such a great weekend, and there is still lots to do next time we visit.
