Now that our trip is complete I like to look back on how the planning process went. It is hard to believe how long the planning takes and the trip seems to just fly by. Luckily we found a way to make the most of our trip while enjoying every moment of it.

With the London Pass we were thrilled it gave us access and many time Fast Track (the front of the line) to many attractions and saved us a bundle of money by not paying entrance at each place we visited. A few of the attractions on our must-see list included:
- Hop On Hop Off Bus Tour
- HMS Belfast
- Thames River Cruise (also hop on hop off)
- London Bridge Experience
- Westminister Abbey
- Kensington Palace
- Tower Bridge Exhibition
- Windsor Castle
- London Zoo
- Beefeater Gin Distillery Tour
- London Bicycle Tour
The London Pass has over 60 attractions tours and museums you can access along with discounts at many of the gift shops. I highly recommend installing the app on your phone so you can search deals near you and easily navigate to your next destination. The guidebook is full of tips to help you navigate London and make the most of your experience.
We loved soaking in the surrounding and checking off iconic sites like Big Ben, The Coca-Cola London Eye, a telephone booth and the many statues, fountains and parks of the city. Once you leave your flat be prepared to be gone all day we highly recommend taking a backpack with a few essentials including rain coats, a mophie, charging cables, snacks and water.
The flat we booked through FG Properties was within five minutes to an Underground station and a market was just around the corner! The flat comfortably fit the four of us, the living room was inviting and a great place to relax I highly recommend using FG Properties. We couldn't have asked for a better location to adjust to the time zone and start our family vacation.
London was made for tourists like us who aren't afraid to walk a little, use public transit and explore what the city has to offer.
