Afternoon tea is a wonderful tradition and I've enjoyed this pastime at nearly all of the venues in London.

Wednesday April 16, 2014
Encouraging children to enjoy cooking and to learn how their favorite meals are created is always a good thing. The Divertimenti Cookery School has a children's program called Growing Gourmets which has classes during the UK school holidays.

Tuesday April 15, 2014
St. Patrick's Day is well celebrated in London but we'll also have St. George's Day celebrations, although on a much smaller scale.

St George's Day is on 23 April but there's a Feast of St George in Trafalgar Square on Monday 21 April 2014 with music, dancing and lots of eating. You can find out about other celebrations, including Morris dancing, at www.stgeorgesholiday.com. Image © Daniel Berehulak/Getty Images | London Travel Blog

Changing the Guard Tour Review

Monday April 14, 2014
Seeing the Changing the Guard ceremony is, for many, a real highlight of a trip to London but it is hard to know where to stand for the best views. I get asked lots of questions about the ceremony: Should I stay in the same place? Should I arrive super-early to get a good spot? How do I know whats going on? All are valid questions yet they don't all have simple answers. But from now on, I do have an answer: take the Changing the Guard Tour from Fun London Tours!

I tried this and was really impressed. We started the walk away from the crowds and found ourselves in the right place at the right time with the guidance of Matt who kept us moving when needed and made sure we all had fun. Find out more by reading my Changing the Guard Tour Review.
