London with Teenage Boys - Sports, Jack the Ripper, Olympic Village?

Jump to last reply

I've been to London many times for business and am finally bringing the family over! The boys are 13 & 16 and are more the sports types (hockey, not even soccer) then museum and theater types; and my husband is like another teenager :)
I mostly want for them to experience just being in another country, however, I know I need to keep them busy but not overscheduled.

I saw a few tours of Chelsea and Arsenal FC - has anyone done those?
We will be there 8 to 12 Nov- does anyone know if any public ice rinks are up at that time?
How about the Jack the Ripper walking tour, or any other walking tour this audience may like?
Is the Olympic area interesting to visit? Do you need to do a paid tour?
Last, I do want the boys to appreciate how much history there is in London - any pre-reading recommendations (not like a travel guide, but more historical highlights)

THANKS in advance for any recommendations!


Any other recommendations appreciated.
