Tweens in London
Tweens in London
Tweens are a special group to consider on a trip! They have a special way of making everyone miserable if they are less than happy! LOL! Keep them engaged so everyone can enjoy the trip! London was made for tweens!
1) Jack the Ripper walk
By day hit the usual sights and by night….
This walk is simply fantastic! Walk around the area Jack the Ripper tore through (pun intended 😉 while your guide tells the sorrid tale….Tweens will LOVE a creepy evening walk.
This tour provides more creepiness for your tween…
Enjoy the Beefeaters tour and you’ll hear about beheadings…
and heirs to the throne locked in the tower who were never seen again. In the past, being heir to the throne was a risky business.
Is your tween a girl? Enjoy the gasp worthy jewels – more than 23,000 of them! The collection is worth more than 20 billion pounds.
Imagine getting to wear them! But also consider how much they weigh. This crown weighs almost 5 pounds.
See the ravens…
There are 6 ravens at the tower and their wings are clipped so they can not leave. The legend says that when the ravens leave the tower…the crown will fall. So now, the ravens are treated like royalty themselves with special care and special diet treats.
It’s haunted by several ghosts including Catherine, the 5th wife of King Henry VIII.
3) London Eye
For those who are sticklers for details, the London Eye is not a ferris wheel…it is a instead a cantilevered observation wheel.
It receives more visitors every year than the Taj Mahal and the Great Pyramids of Gaza. It is so very tall – 443 feet! Could you ride in this glass box? Your tween will LOVE it!
Enjoy the amazing view!
Enjoy adventures with your tween by carefully choosing the perfect places to visit. I can help plan your trip!
