My family loved the London Eye but if you or your children suffer from vertigo or claustrophobia, stay well clear. Also be aware that you have to get into the pod while it is moving which I found a little unnerving. The view is great. Have been both in the daytime and at night, both are worth seeing.
Aug 09. Have been to Fulham Palace a couple of times. Great place on a sunny day. Lots of picnic areas and a café. Many families with children around. The grounds have some great climbing trees and areas where you can wonder around. The palace itself is open to look around as well. Just outside the palace grounds is Bishop's Park, with a playground, sand pit and paddling pool.
Had a lovely time wondering around the gardens and greenhouses. The children really enjoyed the tree walk which I found scary as I don't like heights. Spent ages crawling around the badger sett which was another highlight. At home time I could hardly drag them away from the interactive Climbers & Creepers area. A great day out!
Have only been to Somerset House in the summer when there has been a specific activity on and everytime we have forgotten the swimming trunks! Although the kids can run in and out of the fountains in their normal clothes, they do get very wet so bring trunks and a towel. Also check the Somerset House website as this will tell you if the fountains are on or off that day. Most children's activities seem to be on at weekends.
