Have you done London with kids?

If so, I need your help! We have booked tickets to go back to the UK for Christmas - whoo-hoo!
Now that Ebi-kun is a bit older, I wanted to take him to London for a few days to see the sights. My best mate Di and her little 3 year old will be joining us.


So, I am trying to decide the best places to go, I am a northern lass myself and haven't ventured down into the big smoke that is London very often. In fact I can find my way around Tokyo without problems but London, I am clueless.

If you have any good book recommendations too for Ebi-kun, that would be helpful too!

We are on a budget so it needs to be cheap or better still free, suitable for a 7 and 3 year old and not somewhere pretty generic like a zoo or aquarium. Where would you go? Or better still where have you been and recommend?

And.. it will be the week before Christmas - mental I know! where is the best place to see the lights/window decorations?

I think we have tickets for the London Eye sorted but that is about it!

My thoughts so far...
Changing the Guard at Buckingham Palace.
The Natural History Museum
Tate 
Bus tour
Covent Garden to see street performers
London Eye
Christmas Lights
Hamleys or Harrods
The National Science Museum

I am sure I am missing some gems, please share you experiences in the comments, I need all the help I can get :o)
