Hi there, my name is Mio, and I wrote the kidsGo! travel guides. Here are some of my top tips for getting the most out of your time in London. I hope you have a great trip - and I'd love for you to share some of your own tips when you get back!

  • If you are using public transport, consider buying a travelcard if you are over 11… but remember, if you are aged 10 or under, you can often travel free with your parent.
  • The weather is changeable in London – so wearing layers to take off or put on as needed, is a good idea… as is carrying an umbrella.
  • The Tube is often the quickest way to travel across London, as you never get stuck in a traffic jam!
  • For some attractions, the easiest and cheapest way to get a ticket is to book online.
  • If you want to try out the Whispering Gallery at St Paul’s Cathedral, aim to get there early before it becomes too noisy! In fact, it’s a good idea to get to any of the popular destinations as early as possible to avoid queues!

When you go to one of the big art galleries ask for the Kids Art Trolley. This has lots of fun activities for a range of age groups (even the grown ups will enjoy them). Each activity is connected to an art work. You can make mini sculpture, draw, solve puzzles etc... and then go back and choose another!
