Is there anything interesting to do in That London?

If you or the 14 year old have slightly gothy inclinations, Abney park is a very atmospheric place to explore

Go up Alexandra Palace or Parliament hill and take in the views.

14 years is probably a reasonable age to enjoy Camden market. Make sure to take in Cyberdog!

If the 14 year old is into axe throwing then this could be a good shout

Never been but mates tell me it’s good

Second Sky Garden too

I can recommend this if you’re considering getting married on your trip too.

Looking for a nice restaurant walking distance (<15 mins) from the Barbican where I can have some wanky small plates, not too expensive but, you know, nice. Does such a place exist

If the 14 year old likes planes, this place is amazing

If the 14 year old likes ducks, this place is amazing:

NB all recommendations about ten years out of date.

Oh.

If you’re happy for the small plates to be a bit taco-centric, Breddos is good.

There’s a whole load of decent places on Whitecross Street, plus the street food market.

I’m not sure that I’d call it ‘wanky small plates’ but Korean BBQ & Vegan on that road is good
