Moving to London - general travels tips please!!

Jump to last reply

Hi all! We just found out my husband has gotten a job in London! We are very excited. We lived in Japan for three years with the military when we were first married, but this will not be a military move and our travel since then has been stateside. Our intention is to travel as much as possible for the time we are there (3 to 5 years). Do you have any general travel tips for me or must see places while we are there?

The travel guides I have purchased so far are:

London Spiral Guide
Great Britain Insight Guide
Discover Europe Lonely Planet
Eyewitness Travel Family Guide London

We have three boys (11, 8 & 5). I do love a good art museum, but the rest probably would only tolerate it to make me happy :) I have been digging on some expat forums, but I would love to hear what seasoned travelers would recommend!! I appreciate any help or recommendations!!
