Family Vacations in London
Thanks to the popularity of Harry Potter and his wizarding friends, London ranks among the top family vacation destinations for millions of muggle families around the world.
While it can be an expensive destination, there also are plenty of affordable and family-friendly things to do in this world-class city. Those include the British Museum, the changing of the guards outside Buckingham Palace, and a stroll along the River Thames and past the iconic Big Ben.
While driving can be a challenge, it’s easy to get around via the Metro (where you’ll be reminded regularly to “mind the gap”), via a double decker bus, classic London cab, or on foot during a family vacation.
