There are so many sights and sounds in London which are simply magical when seen though a child’s eyes, but many of us worry that guided London tours will be rather monotonous and regimented, on stuffy, airless coaches, with fifty other people thus risking tired, bored and fractious children closely followed by disapproving glances and downright glares.
However, when you decide upon a specialist personal tour of London, in a comfortable and roomy private vehicle and accompanied by a knowledgeable and friendly expert London tour guide, things are very different. Firstly, you can ask us to design an itinerary just for you and your family – see all the sights and landmarks including the Changing of the Guard and the impressive Beefeaters at the Tower of London, then take in some really family friendly attractions: Madame Tussauds, London Zoo, London Dungeon and Platform 9 3/4 at King’s Cross Station.
You could even arrange a specific Harry Potter tour, visiting the actual platform where the scenes were filmed and the site for the dramatic encounter between Voldermort and Harry in ‘The Order of the Phoenix’, then stop for a photo shoot at the trolley which has been installed ‘disappearing’ into a wall. The Imperial War Museum Duxford is a fascinating visit – and just imagine their faces if you were to visit on a flying day and be able to witness one of the simulated Spitfire Dogfights over the airfield! There are also many events and exhibitions run throughout the school holidays as well as the Battle of Britain commemorative air show on Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 September 2015.
Rest assured your children can enjoy tours in London just as much as you. With so much to see and to do, there’ll be no calls of ‘I’m bored’, just endless informative, entertainment – and more than a modicum of education!
