Which books take you on bus rides?

 

The London Treasure Trail, The London Lion Hunt, Christmas in London and If Statues Could Talk all include bus rides. The London Treasure Trail has a very special bus ride with a chart to tick things off as you spot them.

 

Are some of the books more demanding than others?

 

Yes - If Statues Could Talk is quite a long trail, because there are 26 statues, one for each letter of the alphabet. Some people prefer to split it and have two outings. This is the book that gives free family entrance to Westminster Abbey for children aged eleven and under.

 

The London Treasure Trail is a very full day, but there are so many wonderful things in it, we couldn't possibly leave any out!
