Things to do in London with teenagers

Jump to last reply

I am planning on taking my two girls, 12 and 17 to London for a week at the end of June. This is going to be a mom and daughters week before the older one heads into her senior year and then off to college. I am trying to get reservations at the Hilton Metropole (Hilton points). I know the Paddington would be better but point wise it doesn't work out. I am hoping this is a nice central and safe area. I read some reviews that it was convenient.

Also, please give me some ideas that would be fun for all of us. So far, we want to see Kensington Palace, ride the Eye (I hope I don't get sick on it), see Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Harrods and just take the city in. We live near NYC so it would be cool to compare. We would also like to take a day tour to see Stonehenge. D17 might want to see Oxford, just for the heck of it. So if it's doable, we would take that in. At one point we thought about taking the train to Paris for an overnight but it seems to be too much to do in one week.

Thank you in advance for your suggestions.
