Taking your kids for a day out in London, and wondering how to keep them amused? Or at least how to keep them from mauling passing strangers? Freaky Rivet is delighted to announce the launch of our one day themed London itineraries. Ludicrously priced at £1 a pop (about $1.50), it would be mad not to buy them. AND all profits from these itineraries, will go to a local London-based children’s charity that focusses on keeping kids active. Yes, ALL profits from the itineraries. Every penny or cent (though we’re hoping for much more). So you help your kids have a good time and learn something while helping local kids from underprivileged backgrounds also get active. You can get all 18 here.

Why are these itineraries different? Each itinerary picks a theme that most kids will love. Whether it’s Football London, Gory London, Murderous London or Scientific London, there’s bound to be at least one theme from the 18 we have that your kids will love. And the whole day’s itinerary is built around that theme.

In a nod to what everyone else is doing, we include the main stops (also known as tourist traps) in the itineraries. But only as an afterthought! Our itineraries focus on places that most other kids don’t go to, places that are slightly whacky and less well-known stops. Sure, we’ll include a list of some of the better known attractions (aka tourist traps), but we want your kids to go to school and be able to tell stories different from all the other kids who came to London.

Each itinerary also has a suggested pit stop for food and travel instructions. You’d expect that. What you might not expect is that each itinerary also describes a game that you can play with your kids either while you’re travelling or when you’re stopped and you feel the “I’m bored” monster rearing its pig-ugly head. And there’s also a photo game with each itinerary for you to post your kids’ masterpieces onto our Facebook page so that you can compare them with the other reprobates children who came to visit.

By the way – see that map? If you click it on your mobile device, you’ll activate the description of the itinerary within Google Maps as well. So if you want to see where you are as you go along and read about what’s in store, you can do that too.

Families Magazine in London loved it so much that they featured it in a recent issue.

And all for the derisory price of $1.50 or about £1. Did we mention that all the profits from these itineraries will go to a charity that works with underprivileged kids in London get active? Oh – we did. Well, no harm in mentioning it again. Get one (or many!) our itineraries here.
