What to do in London with kids
If you’ve got young kids, this video with a London mum will give you some good tips.
London is very kid friendly, so don’t feel like you can’t do anything (especially during the day) because you’ve got kids of any age. You know your kids best so you’ll have to take my various recommendations across my channels and paid guides and use your parental instinct as to what they’ll enjoy the most 🙂
I’ve also put together a “London with Kids” Pinterest board that should help too.
“What do you recommend to do while we’re in London?”
“What are your recommendations for where to eat in London?”
Because there are thousands of restaurants in London, and everyone’s situation and tastes are different, I’ve put all of my top local-approved food recommendations in The Local Guide to London, as well as a select few in my 3-Day London Itinerary.
“Do you know of someone who can take some nice photos of me in London?”
Sure do. Check out my London Photo Sessions.
“Do you have tips for living in/moving to London?”
I’ve got some videos about my tips and experiences moving to and living in London as an American in this video playlist.
“How are you able to live and work in the UK? What are the immigration laws like? How can I get a job there?”
I’m married to a Brit, so I have a spouse visa. I can’t help with immigration stuff, sorry!
“Should I get a London Pass?”
“Do you recommend a day trip to [city]?”
My personal opinion is that there’s so much to do in London (especially if you get off the tourist trail) that you don’t need to do a day trip. If you really want to, go for it, but I’d recommend skipping the tours that take you to a million places in one day and instead just choose one spot and take the train there on your own. Watch this video to find out about your options for traveling outside of London.
“Which West End shows do you recommend?”
I personally love the Lion King, Five Guys Named Moe, Billy Elliot (no longer on), and my favourite is The Book of Mormon.
“Where should I go shopping in London?”
Here’s a list of some of the city’s most famous shopping areas.
“What is there to do in London in the winter?”
Watch my Winter in London playlist.
“What London tours do you recommend?”
I’m very picky when it comes to recommending tours to you. Here’s my list of my favourite tours that I think you’ll like and find are good value.
“Can I hire you as a tour guide?”
I’m not sure I’d be a very good one, but thanks for asking 🙂
“If I send you my itinerary, can you look at it and give me some feedback?”
I’m afraid there aren’t enough hours in the day, that’s why I made my 3-Day London Itinerary.
