I am 100% in with this trip report! Can't wait for more! As our kids get older, we definitely want to do more trips like this!

Your post just made think that our next England trip, planned for a summer, might get moved to a May to avoid some of the tourist crowds. When we were at the Churchill War Rooms one January, it was just us.

Abbey is always a crowded mess, regardless of season. They seem to go back and forth on photos. Used to be you could purchase an add-on that permitted for private use.

Looks like you all had a great time! Can't wait for more.

Dirk

Thank you for this wonderful TR. we're contemplating our first trip to England a year or two from now, and getting very inspired by this TR and incredible pictures. Glad to know it's good to purchase those tickets/tours in advance.
Great pictures of the family. Kids look like they're enjoying it all too! looking forward to hearing more

Sweet! I bet you pretty much have to be an MP to get season tickets in the first row of white seats.

Great trip report!
(And surely you mean "chips", right? )

BH commented when we left that she felt very comfortable in London and it felt safer and cleaner then NYC. I will definitely say that London was definitely cleaner then NYC and we didn't see the usual stuff you see in NYC (homelessness, begging, etc.) on the streets or in the tube. We basically were in the touristy nicer ares of London so perhaps there is more of that in the dodgy sections.

The only incident that happened was that one morning going to the underground, a drunk guy saw that I was holding my son's NYCFC hat and started talking to me about football in America and then tried to segue into other discussions. He was clearly not picking up on my social cues that I was not interested in the discussion and I confused him by making a turn when my family went straight to avoid him (I caught up to my family on the next block). But after living in and visiting NYC numerous times thats not something that out of the norm. But I would say I felt completely safe throughout our time in London.
That's good to know. We were thinking about going next year. And I was worried. Guess the key is to stay in the touristy areas. I live in a small town. So not used to the urban hustle and bustle. Thanks

Awesome photos - especially you in the slide.

Really a great trip. The world is definitely an amazing place.
