Format: Paperback
This has to be the best guide book for kids, not because it has tons of kid centered activities but because it's actually a kids book. Whereas most city tour books are written for parents though about child friendly activities, this book is written for school aged children which not only makes it unique, but lots of fun! I gave it to my six year old who literally sat down and read it from cover to cover.

The book is broken down into the different areas of London. It then focuses on the best each area has to offer, such as museums and parks, but it also mentions a few fun places to eat (it doesn't really cover restaurants at all so it would not replace a proper guidebook), fun things to see (such as the street performers at Covent Garden and a lot of other hands on activities. Each two page spread features only one sight so the child isn't overwhelmed with info. The is a brief description of the sight to see, a few beautiful color photos and then some quick factoids as well as some really bad jokes which my daughter thought were hilarious. At the bottom of each page is a rating system - 5 stars for awesome and 1 star for really bad. In the back of the book are 2 pages of gold stars your child can use while they see the sights so they can mark which ones they liked and which they didn't. On the opposite page is a little box they can tick to say if they want to see the sight or if they'd rather skip it all together. That alone really got my daughter excited and drew her into the book, i think because it immediately became something in her control versus me telling her what I wanted to see. She could tell me what she found interesting or not worth her time. The only trouble with that was she ended up ticking almost every box in the book! But there are worse dilemmas a parent could have.

I've never come across any guidebook that combines the essential usefulness that you want from a guidebook with the sense of fun and discovery you want from a holiday. Well, this one does it! And that's not just if you're putting yourself in the shoes of a child. I think most adults will get a kick out of this and end up using it a lot more than their so-called 'grown-up' guidebooks.

It's full of jokes and inside info, plus titbits of trivia that aren't too heavy on the history, but add that vital touch of colour and character to your visit. Next time I'm exploring London I'll be leaving my preconceptions at home (along with all my old guidebooks) and I'll just let this fantastic treat of a book take me through the city and show it to me through new eyes.

If you ever think you know London, or even that you know the main sights and you've seen it all before, check out this guidebook. Share it with your kids, sure, but don't forget to rediscover the joy of exploring for yourself!

I have the Edinburgh guidebook from this series and was so impressed I got the London one too for our next visit at Easter. I wasn't disappointed. This colourful book is amazing, it's both about children's activities and written for children themselves.

For six different areas of London, beginning with Central and moving outwards, you are invited to do something, for instance, Stare a TRex in the Eye ... at the Natural History Museum. Each activity is given a double page spread which gives fascinating facts about the activity, top tips, jokes, other things to include in your visit, photo opportunities, and a 5 star sticker scoring section with gold stars included at the back of the book. In the bottom right of each page is address information including the closest tube station, opening dates and times, a coding system showing whether the place has a shop, cafe, is good for wet weather, and whether there are height restrictions and a pricing indicator from FREE through £(cheap as chips), and ££ (cheap as fish and chips) to £££ (not cheap at all). At the end of the book are a set of top fives (top five places to shop for toys and sweets, markets, run around etc) and a parent page.

Completely recommended, everything you need for a holiday that allows you to stay within your budget and whilst giving you full details of all the major attractions also includes the more obscure delights of the capital city.

Format: Paperback
This is one of the best books I have reviewed! It is a brilliant guidebook to London, aimed at children, and it will do a wonderful job of enthusing them to visit the sights - both famous and less well-known. I found many places and activities in here I have never thought of. Presented in the style of a conventional guidebook, there are 60 super places to visit, all with an outline of the fascinating activities available. Tips, facts, how to plan your visit and stickers to remind you how good it was. Design your own coat of arms; drive a tube train and much, much more. Not only an essential guide for those visiting London, but a great book for all children, to familiarise them with the marvels of our capital city. Plenty of inspiration for parents when planning a day out, so not just a children's book. A well-produced book, this is excellent value for its wealth of inspiring information - very highly recommended. There are lots more in the series too - check them out.
