We are arriving on July 10 and should be at hotel at noon. I want to keep the first day light as we may be a bit tired and jet lagged. We are staying near Buckingham Palace. My thought was to do a loop beginning at Wellington Arch, to Buckingham Palace, down Birdcage Walk to Trafalgar Square and back down The Mall.
I know we will be passing many sites and would welcome feedback on -Wellington Barracks, 10 Downing, St James Park, Horse Guard. Also is this a nice walk to ease us into the trip. We are 2 adults and 4 teen age boys.
