Hi all,

Plans are to spend spring break in London (approx. dates: 3/25/10-4/3/10). It'd be a family vacation for all the girls. It will be my mother, sisters, nieces and myself. We're all between the ages of 2-46. I have a few questions:

1. What is the best area to stay in?
2. Can someone recommend any price-friendly, family-friendly hotels?
3. My mom, older sister, and I are okay with shopping but my younger sisters and nieces (2-15) will probably like to do more than that. What are some things they may be interested in?

Any other advice is welcome. Especially traveling with a 2 year old. It'll be her first trip and first airplane ride.

Thanks!

Please make sure that her sinuses are clear, one way or another.

Young children are prone to ear-pressure pain upon take off and landing, and speaking as a non-parent, its not pleasant for anyone in the airplane, least of all the parent who probably fear the delicate eardrum will be damaged. It sure sounds like they're being hurt from the sound of it. It almost never happens, of course, BUT, if the child has an ear infection or any kind of blockage, see a doctor before flying.



Bring small toys so they can play quietly in your lap.

Once in London, there is always the London tower, Buckingham palace, and the London Eye. I liked the Globe theatre. Also, don't forget the Oxford campus. I know I did, and I always regret doing so.
