 I'm looking for hotels, probably go premier Inn but not sure Clapham looks okay not too far in on tube? 

The mrs found a travelodge near Kings cross for 30 a night if that helps.

Just had a look at brick lane bagels,  they look amazing, and my lot don't get excited about our or mash, much appreciated, I'll be going there 👍

Theres 2 shops a couple doors away from eachother.Go to the Bagel Bake the blue and white shop on the right which will probably have a queue coming out the door and up the pavement.

Pie & Mash,Jellied Eels etc are just good cheap traditional daytime convenience foods its hardly a gourmet meal !.......i dont go a bundle on Eccles Cakes or Cornish Pasties but respect the traditions that go with them in the areas they are from and will give them a go when there......nobody walks out of Manzes licking their lips in ecstatic culinary satisfaction but you've filled a hole sat around common local folk.

I've booked the London central kings cross, Sid recommended one is already booked up it'll be around half term , I'll probably give pie and mash a go, my dad enjoyed all that, although there's not much left of the Paddington he knew so not worth taking my boys there. Gonna hit the natural history hard as kids love all that, then some food a tube ride somewhere, maybe a wander along the river , they'll be made up.

The natural history museum for a child is pure wonderment, absolutely superb place, doesn't get any better, also what about a spin on the London Eye or a ride on a river ferry?

I just suggested a river cruise , so may be on the cards, my mate offered me his mod discount for the eye and was still £70 I've done it but I think the river cruise is a better one , and it's something I've not done in London 👍

You're never going to see much of London in a short stay you're better off in my opinion picking a few things you'd like to see/do and just committing days to them....trying to do too much on any City break is exhausting and you end up not giving things your full attention......ive done City breaks before and ended stressed up to the eyeballs and needing a holiday when i got home !

If you want to go up the river take a boat to Greenwhich and go in the Naval museum, look round the market etc…..it’s brilliant, then you simply get the boat back again.

Naval museum costs nothing to get into and if you want a heart attack you can climb the hill and go in the Royal Observatory as well

If you do a river cruise double it up with the cable car it’s pretty good it’s also close to the dome, also there used to be a decent Pie & Mash in Woolwich near the cable car and dome, also hopefully it’s still there Kelly’s Pie & Mash in Bethnal Green Road and one in Roman road which is the Far East end of Bethnal Green Road which isn’t too far from Kings Cross, take it from some one who lived in the East End the Bagel shop is a must visit.
