London, England Family Vacation
Know Before You GoPrinter-Friendly Version
- At a Glance
London is one of the most charming and welcoming cities in Europe for American families traveling abroad -- historical, friendly, and decidedly British. Here you'll find everything from steak-and-kidney pie to high speed boat rides down the Thames. An intriguing blend of the very old (the Tower of London dates to the 11th century) and the very new (the London Eye, built in 2000 for the Millennium, was so modern some old fogies wanted to tear it down), London is diverse, friendly, and always exciting. Yes, it's notoriously expensive (one of the most expensive cities in the world) but don't let that give you pause: many of the best museums in London are free, children ride on public transit without paying a penny, and the luscious royal parks are also gratis.
