Family Day in London…

It’s half term holidays and there is only one important trip at the top of our list… A day in London.

When I first moved to London nearly 19 years ago, we did the whole ‘touristy’ thing! Museums, palaces, parks etc but hubby not so much. Yes he is from London himself but it’s sad when you think there are so many people in this wonderful country who have never ventured out of the UK (no passports) and have also never seen what London or England have to offer.

So we always try to make sure we visit new places or at least pop into London (only 20 mins on the train) and enjoy the surroundings 🙂

We planned to visit the Imperial War Museum.

We left the house, successful walk to the station and the kids were great on the train enjoying snacks and playing eye spy of course…what do you play when you’re traveling?
I’m not a huge fan when it comes to children and the underground, my brain is on overdrive:
•keep the kids close
•hold hands
Drives me crazy!

But we arrived at the Imperial War Museum safely 🙂

The kids were so happy and excited…but when we walked into the door, bored faces appeared and “is there a soft play here” squeaked out my daughters mouth lol Oh great this is gonna be fun lol!
It actually was, they loved it and really enjoyed looking at all was to offer. Although very hungry, I made sure my bag was filled up with snacks just so they could cope better with the long walk around the museum.

OJ loved the war cars and aeroplanes hanging from above and I don’t think CJ had any favourite part, she still would have just preferred the soft play lol!
Myself and hubby on the other hand found the Holocaust Room simply mind blowing….next time we plan to visit ‘ChildFree’ just so we can take it in more and actually read more of what happened!

We ended the day with a yummy lunch at Planet Hollywood. The food was great, service was brilliant and the kids loved it-what else matters 🙂

Here are our fab fotos of our family day out 🙂 xox
