Topsy and Tim Visit London! A great read and a great day out!

The new Topsy and Tim book – Topsy and Tim Visit London – is a real treat for fans of the twins or for those who are planning on visiting the Capital with children. To celebrate the release of the book, we thought it would be fun to take the twins out and about near Ladybird Towers, snapping some shots along the way. See if you can spot where they are before you read the caption!

    We went to watch the gruffalo live at the theatre in leicester square. And walk around Chinatown for a bit of Chinese food! Yummy!

  2. Lynne OConnor says:

    The London Aquarium – not weather dependent, entrance controlled so it doesn’t get too crowded and loads to see up close. Favourites include the sharks, piranhas, sea horses and rays.

  3. DianaH says:

    The Science Museum, which currently has a dinoaur exhibition. We would love to spend the night amongst the exhibits! Wow! Thanks for running this competition.

  4. C Tanti says:

    I’d like to take my children to see the Tower of London and the Natural History Museum, jewels and dinos, something for everyone.

  5. Ms Tammy Birch says:

    Hi, the place we really enjoy is walking up and down East end lane market, its brilliant and then I have to spend ages in Hamleys with my 5yr old daughter and im lucky if my purse isn’t empty when we come out.

  6. Nicola says:

    We often spend many fun hours on the South Bank, enjoying the activities (often free) at the National Theatre or Royal Festival Hall. My 5 and 2 year old boys love it- there’s always so much going on, plenty of places to eat, drink, toilets etc. Plus, there’s all the boats and buses to watch too.

  7. Mrs Webster says:

    Hello, I have not yet had the confidence to take my Son on the train to Londaon, it’s a 2 hour trip and he would be restless. Having said that, I can’t wait to show him the dinosaur at the Natural History Museum, the London buses, Big Ben and of course Hamleys the toy shop, when he is a bit older!

  8. Vinni says:

    My 2 kids Anik 4 and sia 2 absolutly loved going to London aquarium. They loed watching, big Sharks, Turtles , sea horses. My little was sooooooo excited to see The clown fish and kept shouting NEMO Nemo…:-)). My Son loved the experience of touching little starfish in a lillte rock pool. Definatly recommend it.

  9. Kristie Scarle says:

    We haven’t taken our 2-year-old to London yet – but we’re looking forward to taking her to the Science Museum (lots of buttons to press and gadgets to see) and she’s going to love the Natural History Museum with the ‘dinesaw – grr’.

  10. Maria Clarke says:

    We love London Zoo. It is such a beautiful place, and peaceful too, in a busy city. The animals are very well looks after and the children delight in seeing them.

  11. Charlotte Colgan says:

    My son aged 2 love the SeaLife Centre/London Aquarium – because he can see Dory and Nemo, and lots of colourful fishes and penguins swimming around. Great for a day out and baby and toddler friendly and educational at the same time… smiles all round!

  12. Helen says:

    My little boy loved watching the guards get ready for The Changing of the Guard and playing in st. James’ park.

  13. Dawn says:

    My son loved London at Christmas, watching Changing of the Guard and hearing them play all the Christmas Songs and seeing all the Christmas decorations.

  14. Aimee Carter says:

    To see the Queen at Buckingham Palace. Its great to get my daughter involved with our history and customs x

  15. Janine Brook says:

    Its so hard to choose the best place as my kids love it all and we go on the open top bus tour which means we get to see everything. Happy me as I get to sit down and dont lose the kids and happy kids as so much to take in and they get to take their own pics -)

  16. Rachel Dyson says:

    We took our son for a special day out to the Natural History Museum, lunch at the Rainforest Cafe then Hamleys!

  17. MARGIE HEATH says:

    We went around on a ‘London Duck Tour’, which goes around the sights of London and it was great fun. We also went on the river, as it turns into an amphibian boat,
    the children loved it! Especially passing Houses of Parliament.

  18. Jackie Borland says:

    We went to the palace and my little girl shouted at the top of her voice “Hello Sholdier come over here Sholdier!” It was very cute.

  19. hayley pemberton says:

    We would enjoy taking my daughters to see the queen. They think she just sits on the throne all day waiting for them to come see her!

  20. Julie Nokes says:

    My children loved Trafalgar Square and the fountain. Now I am looking forward to taking my grandson.

  21. Sonia Conway says:

    It’s got to be going up and across the top of Tower Bridge and then round the Tower of London. Though the Underground trip to get there is just as exciting for my son.

  22. julie martin says:

    We have not been to London yet with my daughter as she is only 14mths old however I would like to take her to see Buckingham palace and the tower of London x x x 🙂

  23. Helen Baggaley says:

    The Natural History Museum has always been my favourite, and was so happy that my little man loved it too! But one day in there is never long enough!

  24. Sarah Edwards says:

    I love taking my son on the train to London. We look at the books and piranhas in Foyles with a quick peek in the British Museum. If I am lucky I get some cake too before we wander back to the train station taking in the sights, sounds and smells of London Town.

  25. WE’ve not had the chance to take our 1 and 2 year olds to london yet, but I’m sure the dinosaur mad 2yo will love the natural history museum! AND London Zoo! 🙂

  26. yee mcarthur says:

    My daughter loved the Natural History Museum. Loads for her to do and great fun for mum and dad too. Great day out.

  27. Helen Woolgar says:

    We loved going to see the tiger who came for tea at the theatre and then the rainforest cafe. My daughter loves Topsy and Tim and she has just recovered from a broken leg so when I showed her this blog earlier she said she wants to go on the wheel and see Topsy and Tim as last time on the South bank we saw Mickey and Minnie!!

  28. Tracey Parnwell says:

    My 4 yr old twins visited their Nanna in hospital quite a bit when they were tiny so they really only saw the underground and the hospital! Looking forward to taking them to the Olympics soon though!

  29. Nicola Biven says:

    I’ve never taken my little girl to London, but if we get the chance to go I would love to take her to the palace and show her where the queen lives.
