Taking the kids to London tomorrow (aged 12 & 13). Can anyone give any tips on where to visit? I'm hoping to make it a cheap day out so want to avoid the usual expensive attractions. We've already done the main museums & want to do something a bit different. The kids are really hoping to go 'celeb spotting' so any tips would be appreciated.
Also I'm planning to drive from MK to Watford met station & get railcards. Is this the cheapest way to do it?

Science Museum and Natural History are both fantastic

British Museum is also supposed to be very good (not been myself)

Most importantly, all three are free!

Definately do the Science Museum - some hands on experience there

I live in London but have never been on a tour bus - I'd love to do this.

Go to Leicester Square or Covent Garden to see street entertainers! Especially in the early evening, if you are there that late.

not sure who your train company is but they might be running something similar to this

Would recommend a trip up the thames its a great way to see london and if you time it right you can use it as somewhere to have a picnic.

Thanks for all the tips. We had a great day. It was £11 for 1 adult & 2 kids for travelcards from Watford met. We then went to Oxford street, chinatown, walked to Covent garden & watched the street entertainers, then went by bus (covered by the railcards) to knightsbridge & went to harrods. Then we went by tube to camden & walked around the markets. The kids loved it & it didnt cost me a fortune!

Cheers.
