JAM London Hyde Park Chairs


Cheers to a Brilliant British Summer Holiday

Blimey(!), were we gobsmacked by some of the crowds in certain spots because of it being the summer season like many fun destinations, but it was still well worth the trip to Heathrow. We skipped some of our favorite museums and experiences this time and their busy queues (Science Museum, Tate Modern, Shakespeare Globe, Hamleys, Harry Potter at Warner Brothers Studio Tour, Theater District) to explore some new kid-friendly activities, neighborhoods and restaurants. See the rest of our JAM morning for all the ace amusement!
