Review: Usborne Spotter’s Cards – 50 Things to Spot in London

London Spotters Cards Usborne

We LOVE London. Well, I love London. I’m working on the children. I bought them a pack of spotters cards from Usborne and they are really helping London come alive. I bought them for the children but, to be honest, the 50 Things to Spot in London pack is useful for adults too.

I have learned a lot using them. For example, did you know that The Monument is 61.5m (203ft) high, which is the exact distance from its base to the spot where the Great Fire of London started in 1666? You do now!

The pack contains 50 cards, each with a nice picture on one side, and some information on the other, including a fun fact, and what else to spot nearby. Each card also tells you the nearest tube station so you can go and explore and find each thing for yourself.

The cards are laminated and are each A6 in size. They are very sturdy. What you do with the cards is up to you – you could just use them for reference each time you find something, or draw one out at random and go on an adventure.
