Something to do with teenagers
« on: October 21, 2016, 11:28:35 AM »

Got a 16 year old visitor from France coming and I've volunteered to take the day off next Friday and take him and my 13 year old daughter out for tourism. 

Any ideas?  It doesn't have to be in the city, we could drive somewhere. I have no idea what the kid is interested in, probably being sullen and bored.

Ideas we've already thought of include:

Thorpe Park
Climbing the millennium dome
Some sort of musical show or play
Go Ape
Force them to watch me fly kites on a cold wind swept beach

What do you guys think?

I know this is already way past (I'm making up for all that lost time I disappeared from here! haha), but - just in case somebody is looking for ideas in the future and stumbles across this - depending on the kid and their interests, they might like Harry Potter World or whatever it is that's at WB Studios near London.

Harry Potter world is in Watford and is super expensive. 

I can't remember exactly what we did now....
I think we went to Greenwich and saw the view and the observatory, then to the dome where we thought we would climb the outside--nope, not at £35 per child.  Instead we did the Sky virtual reality thing inside the dome.  We also made a newscast there as well.  Then we had milkshakes at 5 guys.

hahaha I love the "where we *thought* we would climb...nope!"

Yeah I think Harry Potter world is definitely pricey but I promised my nephew and niece that we could go when we come visit because they are obsessed. I can justify it if it's a one off I think.
