London is a family-friendly city with loads of things to do with your children …
All4Women travel writer, Sara Essop recently travelled to London with her family. It was her children’s’ first visit to the historic city. They are 10 and 11, and this is what Sara had to say about their favourite experiences:
1. London Eye
The London Eye was the first attraction we chose to visit in London because the children had heard – and read – so much about it, and were eager to ride on it.
It was built as part of London’s millennium celebrations and has become one of the modern icons of the London skyline. Much more than a ferris wheel, the London Eye is the world’s tallest cantilevered ‘observation wheel’.
The futuristic looking capsules allow you to gain panoramic views of London unfolding before you, while you sit in comfort. The interactive touch screens give you information on what you are seeing. The 32 capsules can hold up to 800 people at one time and a complete turn takes about thirty minutes.
Kate Moss has enjoyed 25 rotations and Jessica Alba has been on the wheel 31 times. We were suitably impressed too!
