Q: I am visiting London with my kids for three days. I was wondering if you could tell me an efficient way to cover major attractions on Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3 between 10.00 am to 5.00 pm. We would like to see The Natural History Museum, Wax museum, London Tower, Big Ben, London Eye, Change of guards, Parliament etc. I need help in where to start from and what to see on Day 1,Day 2 and Day 3.

Finally for my three day stay, which kind of travel card is economical?. I read kids travel free after 9.30 am. Thanks so much for your time.


Hi there,
Ok, here’s how I’d tackle seeing the places you listed over 3 days. As for transport, I suggest you get an oyster card with pay as you go, but London Transport are always changing their fare offers so it might be best to ask them this question on your first day before getting on the train.

Day 1:

– start from Westminster station. Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, changing of the guard, across the river to London Eye. On to Waterloo station or back across to westminster station.
Day 2:
start from south kensington station. Natural History museum, also (if you want) Science museum (good for kids), back on train to Baker Street. Wax museum. back to Baker street station.
Day 3:
Start from Tower Hill station. Tower of London, Tower bridge, walk across bridge along south bank to Tate Modern museum, Shakespeares Globe and the London Dungeon. On train at London Bridge station.
