Overview

Are you and your family in London for just one day and want to see it all? Or perhaps you are visiting London for longer but want to have an introductory, action-packed day with your loved ones? Well have we got the tour for you! Meet the Locals for Families has carefully crafted the perfect day-long introduction tour to London, so that you won’t miss a thing. With an engaging “Mary Poppins” guide and activity booklets for the kids, we have created this hassle-free tour so that everyone can have fun while learning!

Your day of amusement is about to begin! Your kid-friendly guide will meet you directly at your hotel or apartment in London. Before you visit any of the amazing sites you’ll see along your adventure, get ready for a classic London experience: the Tube! Every Londoner uses it; even Her Majesty the Queen has ridden it! The oldest underground passenger railway in the world, the “Underground” is nicknamed the “Tube” due to is small, circular tunnels and rounded trains.

Your first stop will be the Changing of the Guards at Buckingham Palace. This daily ceremony marks the transfer of responsibility from the Queen’s Guard to the New Guard. The Changing of the Guard takes place every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday (and every day in June & July). Every other day, there is the Changing of the Horse Guards at the Horse Guards Parade. Regardless of which ceremony you see, this display of pageantry and grandeur is tons of fun for the kids!

Up next is a stroll down the Westminster Walk. This path will allow you to see some of the must-dos in London, and therefore cannot be missed! Along the way, you will be able to observe Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, and the Houses of Parliament. Your expert guide can use this time to explain how power is divided between the Royal Family and the House of Lords and the House of Commons in Parliament.

Now that you have seen some iconic sites on foot, let’s take a look from a little higher…400 feet higher to be precise! Step onto one of the 360° observation capsules of the London Eye to get a view of London like no other. At a calm speed, you will climb higher and higher as your kids play a fun spotting game. They will receive some pictures and will need to identify iconic monuments. Who can spy them the quickest?

You must surely be hungry after all your morning’s adventures! Kick back and relax with a tasty bite. Your expert guide will recommend some tasty restaurants for lunch on the trendy Southbank based on your preferences.

Once you have satisfied your appetite, back on the move! Your family will enjoy a 20-min relaxing cruise. This will be a great way to get yet another type of view of London. As with many old cities, a lot of the main sites are along the river shore. With this cruise, you will be able to catch a glimpse of them (all while letting your delicious lunch digest!).

Once your boat docks, step back on land to visit the striking Tower of London. This impressive museum has been a palace, fortress, prison, and even a zoo during its 900+ years. But this won’t be just a regular visit. It will be a treasure hunt! Make your way through this extraordinary castle while solving clues. But don’t worry, your cheerful guide can drop a hint here and there if needed. While you’re there, you’ll also get to eye the magnificent Crown Jewels! Along with the coronation regalia, over 100 royal objects are held here. They might just be the most visited objects in the whole world!

End your fun-filled day with a beautiful view of London along the iconic Tower Bridge. Take in the sights once more as you reflect on all the wonderful memories you’ve made with your family. And if you are hanging around London for a little longer, why not check out some of our other family-friendly tours?

My kids are fan of Harry Potter; can we see some sites of the saga?

Absolutely! We have many fantastic Harry Potter experts (true Potterheads) and we would be thrilled to adapt this itinerary to include sites related to the books and films to make your London day tour even more magical.

What if it rains?

In case of bad weather, the Changing of the Guards will be canceled. We can replace it with a visit to the Royal Mews. Located at Buckingham Palace, it hosts the royal collection of historic carriages and coaches. Like a site right out of a fairytale, this will be super fun for the kids! There will be an additional charge to cover the tickets.
