London Fun With Timeout London Guides

Our first stop for London fun to discover was the Timeout magazine, or failing that, our trusty little Timeout London city guide. Our family (Mom, Dad, teen and tween) looked for the best budget travel options in London, budget family accommodation and the best fun London attractions and events that kids could enjoy for free on a London fun vacation - and Timeout magazine helped us find some great ones!

Timeout Magazine Covers Everything London!

Committed Anglophiles planning London vacations often subscribe to Timeout magazine well in advance. Another alternative is the bestselling Timeout London city guide. This helps to ensure visitors get the best London fun guide for their money, by being in the right place at the right time for top exhibitions, shows and events such as the London 2012 Olympics. Maybe it's because it's because they're Londoners, but this guide book has a touch of the cockney about it that some visitors don't take to! However, we like it - it's straight from it's native city, updated annually and often has fun places to go in London that are a bit different. It weighs a little more than the magazine though!
Much of the eyecatching pomp, ceremony and monarchy attractions of London’s history are free to see and can be made more fun for kids by engaging them.

The Changing Of The Guard, The Striking Of Big Ben and The Chelsea Pensioners (taking a stroll in Hyde Park!) are all free to see and are fun if kids are absorbed in taking photos or videos, making a virtual travel blog or sketching.
London museums offer some of the best value in the world for education, entertainment and culture - and many run modestly-priced activities and workshops in the school holidays, some free! Taking the kids to London is an adventure.
We had a hot time in London on a budget - we kept this travelog to record how we did it.
