Here are (just a few!) of our holiday pics from our trip to London last week...
"2 for 1" vouchers to many London attractions. It saved us quite a lot of money as it's not cheap being a tourist in London! I took a little crochet project for the train but didn't succeed in getting much done. the children were both travel sick (hadn't forseen that!) so it wasn't an especially relaxing journey. We bought travel sickness wrist bands for the return train journey and they seemed to help.
here - yummy breakfasts, very friendly staff and decent travel links within a 20 min walk), we went for a little walk and found the local beach!
It wasn't all that easy to take decent photos from the bus (we used this company, booking in advance on the internet gains you a discount), but it was a good way of getting around and seeing parts of the city we wouldn't otherwise have reached. Our ticket was valid for 24 hours and included a boat trip which we were able to take the next morning.
Much queuing was involved at many of the rides. The ones we thought would be most popular actually turned out to have the shortest queues. The park was open for an extra hour and we got on more rides in the last hour than we did in the other six hours we'd been there. Our favourite was the dragon ride.
We enjoyed our day at Kew. We were a little disappointed that there were no bouncy carrots and that the temperate house was closed and we hadn't been told about these when we bought our tickets. We'd still have visited but it would have saved us some walking.
