I love St. James Park because of its proximity to other main sites in London like Trafalgar Square and Buckingham Palace. The view from the bridge in the middle is lovely, so are the ducks and squirrels across the park. It's an enjoyable place to visit, so try and make it there as part of a wider walking tour of the area.

Probably London's most beautiful park - make sure to catch all the locals picnicking in the North-West of the park. Enjoy a stroll around the late... and if you've got the time don't miss London Zoo which forms part of the park. You can also take the lovely walk to the North of the park around Regent's canal. It leads to Camden and all the way to East London - perfect for a long summer's day!

London's best museum - and probably least known among the tourists. There's so much going on so be sure not to miss it. Check out their what's on page on the website because there are some really cool events going on - including their late night opening hours.

Without a doubt, a must see place in London. Portobello market strikes the right balance between tourist-trap and local hangout. Make sure you walk the whole length of the market, it's a fantastic experience. If you're visiting in August, don't miss the Notting Hill Carnival around here - but remember it's not always a child-friendly carnival! The market is very family friendly though. Enjoy!

I used to love Covent Garden when I was a child but I think it's way too touristy now. We've also had some bad experiences getting things stolen whilst sitting at one of the restaurants in the food court - so beware! If you've never been do check it out, just keep your wits around you. Remember, there are more 'independent' shops across London e.g. in East London, so don't think this is the genuine thing! Just take it for what it is.
