This itinerary started from a repeated visit at the Museum of American Heritage, so here are some kid friendly places intertwined with historic and cultural places around the oldest part of Palo Alto.
M O R E :
First day in London, a sunny bank holiday Sunday, lucky us!
It was the perfect day after the long flight, and we took full advantage of it. Well, kind of half of it, it was hard to get up early in the morning after a flying day…
And here’s our itinerary:
- From our place in Chelsea we walked to Hyde Park, with a short stop at the Butterfly Jungle
- A nice stroll in Hyde Park past the Royal Albert Hall, Albert Memorial, Round Pond, to Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Playground
It was lots of fun, a bit of wait but not that scary as it shows in the pics.
- Afternoon tea at the Orangerie
Another long line that went fast, kids found friends and chased pigeons, so all was good. Well, I’m not into tea, so that was … you know, for the kids…
- Another stroll through Kensington Gardens past the Palace brought us to a bus stop
- From here we took the BUS for a quick glimpse of central London, the arch route (Wellington Arch, Marble Arch)
- The bus ride ended on Oxford Street, just a short stroll to our dinner destination
- Belgo! Yum for everyone, and super kid friendly too!
With almost a dozen of mussel dishes, I was instantly hooked. All the other Belgian ingredients mixed in the pot, kids eat free with parents …
no more fish&chips for us in yummy London, yay!
- Another bus ride, bus no 19 brought us back home through the bustling Piccadilly Circus
As expected, first trip day&city, no jetlag for us 🙂
This is London … full of interest.
On Sunday morning you can go to Petticoat Lane open-air market.
When in Rome do as the Romans do, and in London don’t miss the afternoon tea, especially on a nice Sunday afternoon, our first day in London! So I’m thinking the Orangery should be the perfect place with kids, just near the Princess Diana Memorial Park and the statue of Peter Pan.
Speaking of Peter Pan, a new production of Peter Pan comes to London, right in time for our trip, yay 🙂
