Ceremony of the Keys - Logistics with a young child

Jump to last reply

I already have the tickets for four persons, including a 7 year old and a 1 year old. It now turns out, somewhat last minute, that my husband will not be able to attend and it will be up to myself to get us (myself and kids) there and back. I was already somewhat hesitant to take the 1 year old there, but now that my husband will not be coming, I am even more concerned that it may be too much for us, esp. given the late start time (a time at which the baby would usually be in bed). Nonetheless, *I* would love to see it, and I think my 7 year old would enjoy it as well.

Here are my questions/concerns:

1. Are strollers allowed during the tour? I have never been and wonder if there will be stairs, etc., that make a stroller a hassle. If the stroller is a problem, then I will take the baby carrier.

2. Is the whole tour very hush - hush and formal/tense? WIll having a one year old who may make some noises be a huge damper on the rest of the visitors?

2. Will it be OK for us to show up as three persons, even though our ticket is for four? I assume so, but just wanted to make sure.

3. We are staying in Covent Garden, and this is our first visit to London. We are used to public transport (we are currently living in Munich), but being as I have not used PT in London, I am a little concerned about getting to/from with the girls at night. My understanding is that in general, using a stroller will be challenging on the Tube as there are not many elevators. If my husband were with me, he could help me carry the stroller up/down stairs. Will a taxi be a terribly expensive and/or difficult option?

4. Our tickets are for early April. Has anyone ever requested a change in date for the ticket? And with so little time to spare?

Any comments/suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
