Taking the bus is a great way to get to know London.  Tourist London bus tours, though you can use them all day, are not a cheap option. (Over £20 per adult and £13 per child.) The public bus is of course free for kids and will only cost you a day travel pass (From £7). Take lots of small snacks and drinks. Sit at the front of the top deck for a fantastic view, and at the back on the top on a warm day for the best ventilation.  Here is a suggested route: Bus number 19: Starts at Battersea Bridge, then goes up Kings road, Sloane St, Knightsbridge, Piccadilly, Shaftesbury Ave, Covent Garden.  Depending on your stamina, and the strength of little legs, you could at this point walk from Covent Garden down to the Strand and pick up the number 15.  Or by other means make your way to Trafalgar Sq, and then catch the number 15 at the top of the Strand, heading east, passing the Savoy Hotel, Royal Courts of Justice, St Pauls, Fleet Street, through the city to Tower of London. Take a boat from Tower Millennium Pier to London Eye Millennium Pier, this will cost extra, but is a lot cheaper than a tourist cruse, (1/3rd off price with a travel card.) Visit the london Eye, County Hall, London Aquarium, then pick up the number 12 on Westminster Bridge.  Take in the wonderful view of the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben as you go over the bridge, go round Parliament Square, past Westminster Abbey, up Whitehall, pass Horse Guards, and Downing Street, around Trafalgar Square and back to Piccadilly.  Use this map: London Bus Routes  to plan your day. Don't forget your df sunhats!
