It seems there are lots of places to visit for us adults, but what can London offer our little ones? The Bethnal Green Museum of Childhood (closed on Fridays) houses a collection of toys, dolls and doll's houses, children's costumes and nursery antiques. Downtown London offers you not only all the attractions above and many others, but also a huge variety of markets, each one has it's own individual style from ages past. They are preferred not only by people trying to budget or tourists heading for some handmade jewellery or clothes, but also many celebrities cannot avoid popping in. Visit Portobello Market on Friday-Saturday or Camden Market on Sunday and you will understand why there are crowds at every market day.
This is just a taste of what you can do, as it is impossible to name all the museums, shows, attractions and express the charm of Downtown London.
