Overview

Finally! A book about family travel to London written by a parent who has made the trip many times. Let’s Take the Kids to London—A Family Travel Guide proves that an enjoyable family holiday in London is not only possible, it can blend culture, history, and just plain fun for parents and children alike.

But don't take our word for it, ask Paddington Bear, Sherlock Holmes, Peter Pan, Mary Poppins, Winnie-the-Pooh, or Harry Potter. Let’s Take the Kids to London brings London to life with tie-ins to British children's literature. From the Tower of London and Buckingham Palace, to London's lesser known tourist attractions, Let's Take the Kids to London offers practical advice to help visiting families get the most out of a London visit.

No trip is "perfect" and this book injects humor as an antidote to the inevitable small tribulations experienced by the traveling family. Let's Take the Kids to London zeros in on what parents need to know about the logistics of a London holiday and what kids want to know about all the cool things to see and do in the city.
