London on the Cheap Advice Please

Hi,

I have a family of four to entertain in London for a couple of days and I would like to do so without breaking the bank. Any ideas would be gratefully appreciated either ways of getting into places cheaply or ideas for things to do that don't cost the earth.

Thanks

Pete

The Science Museum and Natural History Museums are both free and might be OK if your kids are the right age Pete???

my kids always used to love the science museum, im guessing its better than it used to be 8 years ago, fab place for the kids.

Covent Garden, one of my favourite places, can be done without spending, again, my kids love watching all the acts, the markets lovely, and the punch and judy is great :-D


Yep, everytime we visit London we set aside at least a day for these two museums. They haven't got boring after four visits and always have new displays etc. Adults and kids love NHM especially imo. Cheap day out too and remember that the NHM has a picnic area on the basement floor where you can eat your own food and just but a cup of tea if you want. The SM museum doesn't have this afaik, just an overpriced restaurant, but since they are virtually next door to each other you can still use one for the free lunch even if you are 'doing' the other :thumbsup:

Thanks for all the advice. The family are from Poland and the kids are girls in their teens.

Getting Oyster Card seems a good idea as I can get my money back later and they also give access to a whole bunch of BOGOF offers. Probably will do the lastminute.com £20 for a meal and a show offer on the Saurday night. Did the same a month ago and it was amazing value for money, the menus you get are pretty limited but the seats we got for Lord of the Rings were great.
