Yea, that was a bit difficult. My youngest was 7 at the time and he struggled a bit - and they were pretty much invisible to other people. Walking into the tube station afterwards I had to really shield them from people walking past with cigarettes, totally oblivious to the fact they were there. I'd definitely go again, but wait till the kids are a little bigger.
The only thing that puts me off is having to queue or stand about in the cold for several hours waiting. Especially if you have young children.
Not a bad show for a tenner, and a great atmosphere. We went the last year that it was free, wouldn't mind spending to see them.
Not sure why people moan - If you don't want to pay £10, then don't go - Believe it or not, you have a choice !!!
Mr Kahn is mayor of London now, it is he who can decide not to implement the charge but he hasn't.
