“So why not have a look at our website, read the suggestions from our guest blogger Emily, or visit us in a town centre near you to get some inspiration and travel to London with East Midlands Trains this summer.”
Emily Leary, author of ‘A Mummy Too’, added: “As a family of four, London is one of our favourite day trip destinations. There’s so much to see and do, no two trips are ever the same.
I’m delighted to be sharing some of our top things to see and do in the capital, which should help families get the very best from their next visit."
