Planning your family vacation to Europe or UK? London travel with kids is a great place to start as it's an easy city to get around, much to see and and you don't have to worry about being trilingual because  everyone speaks English.

Since we started our family travel lifestyle, we have been to London a bunch of times and will probably go many more times. I've been there over twenty times and always disover new things. There is always more to see in London and it's one of our favorite cities.

Plus we have many dear friends that live in London, so it makes it one of our homes around the world. On our last visit to London, we were interviewed by the BBC on social media, so that was quite a thrill.

We find May and September the best times to visit for the best shot for sunny weather. There is absolutely nothing as thrilling as sunny days in London and Great Britain, but be aware that those days are rare, so dress appropriately as rain, clouds and drizzle is usually in the forecast.

If you like to combine education and travel or world schooling like we do, the free museums in London are spectacular. See my link above about the free museums in London for the ones we liked best and  check out my 10 Tips for Museums and Travel Tours with Kids.

Even getting around London can be a fun and educational experience. Mozart loved this Paddington Bear stand at the Paddington Station.

and trains in London. One of the best parts of family travel is just doing ordinary things in extraordinary places. It changes one's perspective forever.

Don't forget to do the touristy things like London Eye, High Tea, Covent Garden, Changing of the Guard, etc, but know that part of the joy is just walking about in this beautiful city and don't over do.
