Things Kids Can Do in London

I don’t know much about London, but lensmaster Lou1842 lives there, and has given us an excellent list of things to do with your kids in London. One of the best parts is that she’s found activities that aren’t too expensive, so everyone can afford to do these.


The London Aquarium is one activity that she recommends. While it’s more than some of the other activities, it might be worth going, and she tells you how you can get a discount.

Other kid friendly destinations included on the lens are the Science Museum, Coram’s Fields, Diana’s Memorial Playground, and Mudlarks at the Museum of London Docklands. These are all cost conscious places that have interactive exhibits and fun things children will definitely enjoy doing. Read the entire, informative list of useful kids activities in London that Lou1842 has compiled here.

Beautiful Bournemouth, England

Bournemouth, Dorset, England, United Kingdom

Lensmaster Poddys has created a travel masterpiece about the city of Bournemouth, United Kingdom. Written from the perspective of someone who has lived there and experienced what the seaside resort town has to offer, it seems like a real gem, and isn’t all that traveled by people that live outside of the UK. It’s also recorded as one of the safest spots in England to live, with crime rates far below the national average.

Generally, the weather in Bournemouth seems relatively mild, with average temperatures hovering between 40 and 72°F all year as a daytime high. Known for its steep seaside cliffs, these afford extraordinary views of the coastline and the English Channel. The town is even within driving distance to Paris, France, only a six hour drive away.

While much of England has deep, old roots, the town of Bournemouth is not as new as others. Being established only at the beginning of the 1800’s, the growth of this town has exploded over the years to become the largest town within Dorset.

Planning a trip to this wonderful town? You can Poddy’s has some great suggestions on where to stay in Bournemouth, the beautiful area of England’s south coast. Take it from someone who has lived there! If I ever get to visit England, which I know I will, I’m making Bournemouth a priority to visit.
