Take in a hit show in one of the many West End theatres and come face-to-face with Dickens and Richard III at the National Portrait Gallery. Stroll alongside the River Fleet, where you’ll find the oldest Catholic church in England, St Etheldreda’s, and stop at a 16th century tavern where you can sample a traditional British pint.
Changing of the Guard/Horse Guards Parade
The Changing of the Guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace is one of the most popular attractions in London. Visitors start getting into position up to an hour prior to the ceremony in order to have a good view of the colourful ceremony which takes place daily at 11:30am from April to July and on alternate days from August to April. For those who don't want to spend the time waiting for the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, a nice alternative is the Horse Guards Parade which takes place off Whitehall each weekday at 11:00am and at 10:am on Sundays.
One of the great things about London for families is that there is free admission (although there may be a charge for special exhibitions) at many of the museums including the British Museum which is one of the world's greatest museums of history and where you can see incredible artifacts such as the Elgin Marbles and the Rosetta Stone. The list of museums with free admission also includes the Natural History Museum; the National Gallery; the National Portrait Gallery; the Science Museum; the Tate Modern; and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
