Many families visiting London for the first time keep to the most central part of London to cover the main attractions. And there is nothing wrong with that! Who wouldn’t want to seeBuckingham Palace, the Tower of London and the Houses of Parliament? Keep in mind that all the big museums in Central London are free of charge (donation suggested), and attracts millions of people every year.
