I promised to feed back on these suggestions. As said by others above, the Docklands Museum was great fun and they really enjoyed the trip on the DLR. Would highly recommend it to anyone else who needs to amuse visitors.
We tried to hook up with one of the guided walks in SE1, but the timing didn't work out, so went on one in and around the Square Mile instead. Personally, I didn't think it told them much that I (with a copy of Peter Ackroyd's "London") couldn't have done, and the guide was terminally bored and unwilling to go beyond his script.
I, of course, have given credit where it is due and the boys have one more request of the forum - does anyone know a really good Fish and Chip shop in SE1, so they can try it out before they go back on Monday ? Not a posh restaurant, a good, old-fashioned haddock, chip and peas place. A couple of people have recommended Masters on Waterloo Road
, but grateful for views or other suggestions.
