One product that we love for our day trips around London are these flashcard-style walking tours for areas all throughout London. Anytime we’re stumped for something to do we go to the cards, randomly pick one out, and off we go!
What I love about these cards is they are so easy! They point out an Underground station to start at and give super simple directions on where to walk and points along the way. And the set is affordable on sites like Amazon, much cheaper than paying for individual guided tours all the time.
Not only do you learn a little bit about the area with the descriptions of various landmarks, but they also highlight good places to eat along your journey, maybe a bookstore you never knew existed, or cool pubs to pop into for a pint.
We’ve made it about halfway through our cards. We even let the teenage monkeys take turns picking out a card and it’s fun to go discover a new area we can go hang out in or show friends when they come to visit. I’d highly recommend this nifty little find to anyone who’d love a good walk about London!
