Month Visited: March
We are a family that loves to travel to exciting new places, and we are fairly adventurous without taking a lot of risks. Sometimes we want to be pampered and stay in comfort, but we are willing to get out of our comfort zone at times if there is something we really want to see or do. We try to include educational stops along with fun activities, and we want to see famous places and historic locations wherever we go. Our children at the time of this itinerary: 2 children-Girl age 13 years, Girl age 11 years.

Description: The London Dungeon is a very popular London tourist attraction that is educational, scary, and funny at the same time. The show includes the recreation of a number of historical events which are gory or macabre but in a way that is ideal for children, with a dark humor that is designed to appeal to younger audiences. This attraction in London includes a number of rides, incredible special effects, and live actors that play roles during the experience. This tourist attraction has been going on since 1974.
Our Experiences: The London Dungeon was a lot of fun for our family, but some of the historical events covered may not be appropriate for very young children who are easily frightened. There were some gory details but there was nothing that was too explicit. The kids enjoyed the rides and they were excited about the show. This is a good stop for older kids, and our family would recommend this stop to others.
Hours: Sunday through Thursday10am-6pm, Friday and Saturday 10am-10pm

Description: The Tate Modern is a London art gallery which holds a wide variety of art. Visitors will find a range of artworks, ranging from British art, some of which dates back to the 1500s, to contemporary art and international pieces. This gallery is the National Gallery of International Modern Art for Britain, and it is considered the most visited art gallery out of any in the world. Almost 5 million people will visit the Tate Modern every single year.
Our Experiences: We were surprised at the number of displays at the Tate Modern, and there was a wide diversity in the different pieces that we saw. The building is very large, seven floors of art and exhibits for us to go through. We could have spent even more time here and still not experienced everything that this art gallery has to offer. This is a must see for every family, just because of the culture and art education that all ages can gain. There were other stops that the kids had more fun at, but this was a great experience for us all.
