    If you like chinese food, don't forget Chinatown. Prices are a lot higher than HK so be in for a shock!

    I agree with the museums. It was the first time my 3 year old had been to a museum and he loved it. Even the 18 month old had a good time. Plenty of space to run around and lots of interactive exhibits.

    They both loved the Lodon Eye too.

    The parks!! They are so gorgeous. Some even have open air swimming pools called Lidos in them. Whatever is closest to you.

    This I think has to be the biggest treat for a HK child -- to run wild on the grass for hours! Primrose Hill park is gorgeous and has a super view of the London skyline, and St James' Park has a special little bridge where you can feed the ducks. There's boating in Hyde Park.. Beautiful play areas in Kensington park near Harrods - But all the other parks are fantastic too - lots of open air concerts.

    Pack a picnic whenever you see good weather in London and head for the parks!

    The park is definitely a great idea, there's a flower walk in Kensington Park, high street kensington end, where you can take bread and nuts to feed the squirrels and birds (may not be that correct these days, but it's fun to have sparrows and blue tits feed off your hand).

    If you're going to be travelling a lot on the tube, buses or trains, then it may be a good idea to buy a one day travelcard for unlimited travel.

    They have an Oystercard now - which is the same as an Octopus card... so no need for a one day travelcard...
