London, 3 kids, 6 days, Travecards? Oystercards? Sights? Confusing!!! HELP!

Jump to last reply

Traveling in April with our 3 kids 11,8 and 5 to London. We are arriving Late night (10:30 pm) on a Saturday and staying in the Maida Vale area until the following Friday when we head to Paris. I am going to try to set up either a private transfer or take a taxi with the arrival being so late...any suggestions? Will taxi's seat a family of 5?
I am very overwhelmed with the travelcard, oystercard options for adults and kids. I thought kids under 11 were free so why would I need to purchase a card for the younger 2. What do I need to do for the older one. Is it easier to be dishonest about her age? It looks like a royal pain dealing with her card. Should I order them online? I love being prepared and ready as much as possible. How about the 2 for 1 deals I see available? We are looking at a a trip to Roald Dahl museum, and either Windsor Castle or Stonehenge so those would be 2 days outside the zone 1 and 2. We are debating on taking trains to the possible sites or reserving a zipcar and braving the driving on the other side experience. thoughts on this?
I will also take any suggestions on must see with the kids. I am considering doing the Historic Palaces membership which allows us in Kews, Tower, Kensington, Hampton Court and Banqueting. If we go to 3, it will be well worth the 80GBP. I'm sure we will do the London Eye, St. Paul's and Buckingham Palace too. Anything else I have missed? Unless there is something special, we are not into te Natural History, aquariums, zoos, etc. We live near DC and see those often here. Thanks for all the tips and advice. I don't know what I would do without these forums.
