3 Days in London/Family of Four

Jump to last reply

Hello All. I'd love some simple input. I'm overwhelmed and more than a little panicked.

Decided last minute to book our family trip to London and Paris. (Will post Paris separately so to keep as simple as possible.) Family of four with kids ages 15 (girl) and 12 (boy). We will arrive in London at noon on a Saturday (ten days from now) and leave for Paris on the Eurostar Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. We are staying at the Crown Plaza in Kensington.

My ideas so far are this:
Tower of London
British Musuem
Buckingham Palace
Big Ben
Westminster Abbey

The kids have requested a castle and we have received several recommendations of a fun castle experience at Warick Castle. It would take up all day on Sunday b/c I think the train ride is 2 hours there and then 2 hours back. I know I know. Can we manage these other places on Saturday and Monday? We would only stop and see Buckingham Palace, not tour it. I would love input on order of doing things. Having a hard time with maps and locations...

Thank you so much in advance for any help. I will check back to answer any questions you may have for me. THANK YOU!!!

Pam
