History wise, the Tower of London is worth a go, crown jewels & all. I always enjoyed Hampton Court (a royal palace) when I was a kid - especially the maze. I'd second the Science Museum as a tip.
Most US visitors seem to like to take in Stonehenge (ancient monument), Bath (roman hot baths), and Salisbury (cathedral). But I'm not sure if kids would be up to the culture!
If you want to show them Englishness, take them to a football or rugby union game. There are many clubs in London playing on Saturdays. I make a point of going to US sports when in America and it really does point up the differences in our cultures! Rugby would probably be the best shot (friendlier) - see if there is a game on here:
