Weekend trip to London

Is London the most magnificent city in the world?

No other place in the world has such a famous queen as Elizabeth II and, the symbols such as the Big Ben, House of Parliament, Tower of London and Buckingham Palace. This to say a few.

Not to mention the Beatles, the most famous rock band in the world, founded in 1950 by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Star and George Harrison.
The Beatles dragged crowds, established Rock in England in 1960 and changed the history of World Music.

Last time when we’ve been to London, Kid’s greatest joy was only to walk the streets, get into the Tube, ride London buses and see the city.
Boys loved Waterloo Station and walked around the city, like in Oxford Street.

Here are some Tipps about two incredible attractions to take the kids: London Eye and National History Museum.

We haven’t time to make it, but I also give some info about the visit to Parliament.

We look forward to returning and going to The Making of Harry Potter, at Warner Bros Studios, just outside London. For those who are going, you have to buy the tickets in advance!
Link to Park’s official website here

London Eye

One of the symbols of London seems to float over Central London and has a privileged view over much of the city.

Worth its to buy the tickets online: Standard Ticket Adults £27 and children £22
(Possible to combine the ticket with other attractions, like the London Aquarium or the Madame Tussauds Museum adult price £ 36)

To purchase your ticket, click here on the official website of the London Eye.

One of the most interesting exhibits for me is Earthquakes. We can participate in a simulator that takes place inside an apartment in Japan. Amazing!!

Take a look at the website for special exhibitions and events for the time that will visit the Museum. And arrive early to try to avoid the queues!

    You really make it appear really easy together
    with your presentation however I find this matter to be really one thing which I think I would never understand.
    It kind of feels too complex and extremely broad for me.

    I’m taking a look ahead for your next publish, I will try
    to get the cling of it!

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a
    thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad
    is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally
    off topic but I had to share it with someone!
