Please help me plan my trip to London and Paris

Jump to last reply

So I am very excited. My daughter(8) and I are going to Europe at the End of August 2010. We both love to travel and have never been to Europe. She is a princess and loves castle, princess things, the beach, pool, library, and the museums. We are both into scenery and love taking pictures.
As I have family in London I chose London as our first place to visit. Stay with family would be free so that takes out some hotel/hostel cost. Now we definitely must go to Paris. I would love to hop to a another bordering country if that is possible. Any suggestion would be gladly considered.
As I am on a budget I need some help planning, please and thank you. I am looking into inexpensive hotel/hostels that are accommodating to kids. Free and inexpensive places to visit. We both like walking so sightseeing is very good. Beaches are a must,love the beach.
We are flying into Hethrow from NYC. I have been checking airline prices but no luck as I guess August is too far in advance. Any cheap airline suggestion?
I really suck with reading a map. Ive been looking at the online rail system and wow.
I have interest in Switzerland and Brussel but not sure.
I'm on a new teacher's budget so its definitely not a lot.
So far I think we would be in London for about 4 days
Paris 3 or 4 days
Any other suggestion greatly accepted
please help excited mom and child on their first and definitely not last trip to Europe.

Live Love Laugh
