London, UK Euro, Euro, Euro Tour Guide: Laurence Bowen

London is an exciting place for children and teenagers. Traveling in London as a family may seem overwhelming but is rather managable. There are many museums that are free so you can try out many different places without feeling obliged to spend a certain amount of time to get your money’s worth. Also, family discounts on public transportation are very good.

London has an extraordinary range of art galleries. Both Tate art galleries, (Tate and Tate Modern) The Royal Academy, The National Gellery and the National Portrait Gallery have marvellous collections and especially in the summer have exhibits which are suited to families.

They all have easy to navigate websites with maps and directions. There are always special exhibitions – which have to pre-booked and paid for but the booking and payment can be done securely by credit card before arriving in London.

In the Kensington area, there are three fantastic museums close together that have appeal for people of all ages. The Victoria and Albert museum is listed as a museum of “decorative arts” but do not let that dissuade you, they often have craft activities for children that are free and there is so much visual stimulation children will be well entertained (compared to the other 2 museums next door the V&A can be surprisingly quiet!). The Science Museum and Natural History Museum are right next door and are must see attractions for any visitor to London!

Upon entry, always check at the information desk for on-going children’s activities.Try other types of museums as well, the National Portrait Gallery, the British Museum and the Museum of London all kept children ages 3-13 entertained and interested for hours on a recent visit. In general, children allowed to explore at their own pace (without running or touching the art work, of course) will find plenty to keep them busy. Carry a list of the free museums and consider making a dash for the nearest one sometime when everyone is ready for a change of pace.

If your kids are older and partial to the macabre, you may (repeat, MAY) want to let them explore the horrors of the London Dungeon, on Tooley Street near the London Bridge rail station. This bizarre and scary attraction is certainly not cheap — 14 pounds for children, 18 pounds for adults — but it is quite well done, pays a lot of attention to detail, and is definitely not for the faint of heart.

The cost of these attractions is very high certainly, and if you are going to be spending a few days in Town it pays to check out what the family can do that is not only interesting or educational but also free! This page has a FREE attractions lists.

Selamat datang! Welcome to Malaysia. Your adventure begins with an important welcome meeting at 6 pm. If you have any free time beforehand, why not get out and explore this intriguing city that was born between the Borneo jungle and the South China Sea.

Modern-day ‘KK’ is a vibrant modern metropolis, having recovered from World War II bombings – the Sabah State Museum is a great place to immerse yourself in its backstory.

Day 2: The Original London Sightseeing Tour (Hop On and Hop Off)

Leaving Kota Kinabalu behind, you’ll head for the hills and travel towards the unspoiled wilderness of the World Heritage-listed Mt Kinabalu National Park (approximately 3 hours). You will stop off en route at a local home in a  Dusun Village. Sample the local foods with a home cooked lunch to get some insight into what it’s like to live in a rural village.

Later you can stretch your legs and soak up the mountain scenery with a stroll through Mt Kinabalu National Park. There are many walking trails from which you can bird watch. The Mt Kinabalu Botanical Garden is an excellent showcase of the diverse plant life on the mountain, as flora from all over the park has been replanted here. Spend the night in a mountain lodge close by to the park in Kundasang.

Day 3: Warner Brothers London Studio Tour – Harry Potter

You might wake to the call of a Bornean gibbon, or perhaps a hornbill. Enjoy an early morning cruise down the river, searching for more birds and wildlife. Keep an eye out for Long Tail Macaques and Pig Tail Macaques – your expert leader can tell you the difference. Later that morning, take a walk to Bilit Village, home to the local Orang Sungei community.

The Orang Sungei, which translates to ‘River People’, are one of Sabah’s many indigenous communities and are very hospitable with a diverse cultural heritage. Enjoy some free time in the afternoon before another river cruise to see wildlife along the riverbank. This final river cruise will be your last chance to photograph or simply marvel at your surrounds. Spend one more night in your lovely accommodation right in the heart of the jungle.

London, city, capital of the United Kingdom. It is among the oldest of the world’s great cities—its history spanning nearly two millennia—and one of the most cosmopolitan. By far Britain’s largest metropolis, it is also the country’s economic, transportation, and cultural centre. London is situated in southeastern England, lying astride the River Thames some 50 miles (80 km) upstream from its estuary on the North Sea. In satellite photographs the metropolis can be seen to sit compactly in a Green Belt of open land, with its principal ring highway (the M25 motorway) threaded around it at a radius of about 20 miles (30 km) from the city centre.
