The up-to-date fifth edition has arrived!

A backpacker, a business traveler, and a father and child walk into a London pub. The backpacker steps up to the bar, counts out a handful of British coins and exclaims, “A half-pint of ale please.” The business executive whips out a platinum credit card and orders, “Your best single malt…make it a double.” The father, clutching the hand of a young child, urgently asks the barman, “Where’s the toilet?”

Not everyone travels the same way, and traveling with children entails a unique set of priorities. The culture and colorful history of London come to life in this guide to enjoying an exceptionally entertaining family vacation. Written specifically for families, Let’s Take the Kids to London is the antidote to the inevitable tribulations faced by traveling parents and children. With a focus on family-friendly adventures, it describes such classic destinations as the Tower of London and Buckingham Palace and lesser known attractions such as the Florence Nightingale Museum and the Churchill War Rooms. Key information about each attraction-such as location, hours, and price of admission-is included, allowing families to plan itineraries with confidence. In addition to sight-seeing suggestions, the book is full of practical trip planning tips and advice, getting from the airport to the hotel, finding a doctor, changing money, and locating public restrooms.
