London 2015 – Day 2


The first night went well, kids woke up in the middle of the night but managed to fall back to sleep after a while.  First stop of the day was Buckingham Palace.  Since there was no change of guards that day (on alternate days only), the area was not crowded at all.  We were disappointed (didn’t have the schedule at the time we booked the tickets) but it actually turned out to be an advantage.

As it wasn’t a crowded day, we got to tour the inside of the Palace comfortably.

We spent around two hours at the palace and by then it was about time to head to lunch at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal at the beautiful Mandarin Oriental.

There are so much to see in the museum and a lot of information to take in. We only managed to cover most of the exhibits on dinosaurs.  I would recommend to allocate a day or even two for the little ones to appreciate the exhibits at their own pace.

We ended the day with Italian food near the hotel.

  1. Ah! How was your lunch?! I absolutely love London, and your post really brought back some wonderful memories! And I would say you were lucky it wasn’t a changing of the guards day – the crowds are massive on those days!
