A July 2005 trip
to London by susan alsup
Quote: Traveling to the UK with children ages 12, 14, and 20 can be stressful and, at the same time, very adventurous. Trying to accommodate everyone's wishes can be frustrating, but if you can pull it off, it's a trip they will never forget.
When traveling with children (teens), keeping everyone happy is important, along with enlightening them with a little knowledge about the area. That is why it is important that you balance the day carefully. Allow everyone an opportunity to suggest a place to visit and do a little compromising. I also bought a journal for each of my girls and had them write and sketch things they remembered each night. This has been fun to read now that they are older.

Only two are allowed in each room, so that makes it pricey when traveling with kids. However, I began calling 3 months early to check rates. I actually saved 75% off the rack rate at arrival. And with the price of food there, that was amazing.
