Emily’s Weekend Itinerary: Day One

Carnaby Street

Carnaby Street Teen ShoppingTake the tube to Oxford Circus and down to Carnaby St which is great for trendy teens. Mum and Dad might want to pop into Liberty as you walk straight past it but I wouldn’t say it’s a particularly kid-friendly shop.






hamley's Toy shopYou’ll love Hamley’s, but be warned, with so many great toys and friendly staff giving demonstrations you can end up spending more time than you bargained for here.




Piccadilly Circus

Piccadilly Circus Emily's weekend itineraryPiccadilly Circus is a 5 minute stroll and whatever the weather you’ll want to pose for a great London photo opportunity. Then head to Rupert St for a choice of Yo Sushi or Ed’s Diner. or, if you like your themed restaurants, Bubba Gump and and TGI Fridays are close by too.



Leicester Square

Leicester Square Emily's Weekend Itinerary

Jake and Isaac give Leicester Square a K-Rating of 9

You could venture in to Leicester Square on your way to Trafalgar Square. If you do, pop into M&M World. They actually waft the smell of chocolate around the shop so be careful not to start drooling.







Trafalgar Square

Trafalgar squareWhen you get to Trafalgar Square you can check out the National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery which are both FREE to visit. Oh and don’t forget Nelson’s Column is down in Trafalgar Square so there’s another great photo op to be had.

Tower Bridge
