London Trip - The Lowdown

So many of you have been asking me about my trip to England and my London must-do’s, so here is my version of a London visitor guide. Apologies if I’ve missed something but there’s just too much to cover! If you’re traveling to London for the first time I’m hoping this will be helpful. We stayed at Welbeck street, near Debenhams Oxford Street, and got our apartment via a local agent – you can DM me for the details.

Food in London (I am vegetarian) – I’ll be putting the ‘£’ sign to denote how expensive the place is. I could go on and on with this list -

Japanese
Yo sushi £
Nobu £££

Lebanese
Maroush ££
Flavours of Lebanon £

Italian
Il Pizzaiolo ££
Spaghetti Kitchen ££
Harrods Pizzeria £££
Carluccios ££

Fast Food

Pret A Manger £
Bens Cookies £
Lolas cupcakes ££
Patty and Bun (burgers) £
Borough Market £ (don't miss the raclette)

Places To Explore in London

London Itinerary With The kids

Science Museum – WonderLab
Harrods Toy Department / or Hamleys (can easily spend half a day there, so much to do)
Woburn Safari (not for very young children)
Willows Farm
Legoland
Battersea Park
Diana Memorial Park
Chessington World Of Adventures
Note: I found Peppa Pig World a sheer waste of time, the rides are so slow and the queues so long…it's a snooze fest for kids above 2.5 years

We had a really relaxed pace, did a lot of shopping at oxford street and on the days when the weather decided to misbehave (it rained A LOT), we went to Westfield indoor shopping center or the museums.

Hope this was helpful to some of you – comment with anything else that I can help with.
