Ive booked train tickets for us to have a day trip to London as Lucy is desperate to go. We were thinking of going to the Natural History Museum, Perhaps the science museum and we have to go see the Queens house.
Now I probably wont have anyone to look after Heidi so she will have to come with us. I have a sling and a compact(ish) buggy. Is it doable and any tips? I'm thinking the train journey will probably be the hardest.

Yep it will be fine with the sling. Is the buggy easy to fold and smallish? I often just used to hoist my single buggy up the stairs myself at tube stations but I have always always always been offered help. I usually only go on the tube with my double if I have someone with me or if I know there are lifts.

Its a petit star zia so pretty small. H will be with me too. I dont think she'd tolerate being slung for a whole day

It's doable. H and I took O when he was 13 months old. O spent much of the train journey (about an 80 mins long) looking out of the window. A rucksack is a necessity and we ate out so we didn't have to carry lots of food. Those kiddy magazines are a good distraction as well as a couple of small toys for when you're on the train.

We did it with a just over 2 year old and 5 year old. Fine taking a buggy with H there to help. They each took a small bag with toys/books/snacks for the train. NHM was fantastic!

The museums are next door to each other so that won't be an issue with a small buggy. I think they have buggy parks too. I've taken a sling so I can't remember.

Yes there are buggy parks in nhm and you can leave childrens coats/bags for free.
