The Reading Room at Harrods Knightsbridge must be one of London’s best kid’s bookstores. Ned loved the reading nook he found.

1. Children’s Boutiques
If your kids adore dressing up as Princesses, be sure to visit children’s wear Never before have we seen picture-perfect renditions of Disney Princess dresses.

Right next door, there’s also a range of Avengers costumes – Ironman, Captain America, Hulk and Thor, plus Superman, Spiderman and Batman costumes.
