The Coca-Cola London Eye is more than simply a tourist attraction. It’s a well-established part of the London skyline and a fantastic piece of engineering. I have been on it a few times and love it, but would my children think the same way? There was only one way to find out.
Days out and travel
Write ups of some our favourite family days out. Also, some articles about our experiences of travelling as a family and how you can make travelling with children that bit easier.
When I was a young boy, about nine years of age, my mother and I spent a day in London visiting the sights. Among the places we visited was Madame Tussauds. I’ve been meaning to return ever since but just never quite got around to it.

Over the past couple of years, we’ve had a few trying experiences staying in hotels and other overnight accommodation.

This photograph is significant as it shows just how quickly your children grow up. It was taken when we visited Diggerland in Kent and and shows Izzy at the wheel of a small, battery-powered Land Rover.
