When I was planning our whirlwind 2.5 days in London I knew there were a lot of sights we wanted to see but I didn’t want to do tours with the kids so jet lagged. Instead, I put together this route which covers Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, Big Ben, and Parliament all within a 2-mile walk. If you want to see a lot in a short period of time, I definitely recommend walking this way and Google Maps makes it easy to steal our route!
To really get the most out of your route, read up on each of these historic spots before you go. If you are traveling in a group, assign each person a location to research and you can take turns playing tour guide!
If you have young children, reading about London in advance will make the trip a lot more fun!
