Okay, I'm officially at the almost six months to go mark and I've sorta' got an itinerary figured out.
Is this doable:
1. Monday, Oct. 27th - Day One - fly to London
2. Tuesday, Oct. 28th - Arrive early into London (hopefully, around 7 a.m. or even earlier). Check into hotel and go see Westminster Abbey (as well as Big Ben and Parliament) and Churchill Museum. Take a trip back towards the hotel and hop off at Victoria to get a picture of Buckingham Palace. Go back to hotel early and get a good night's sleep.
3. Wednesday, Oct. 29th - Travel to Stratford-Upon-Avon. Have tickets to "Hamlet" there. Will hopefully get to tour the theatre pre-show.
4. Thursday, Oct. 30th - Come back to London, drop overnight bag off at hotel and hit the British Museum. It's open late so we can take our time.
5. Friday, Oct. 31st - Tower of London and St. Paul's. Take a ghost walk (still trying to figure out which one) and hit the pubs because it's my birthday.
6. Saturday, Nov. 1st - National Gallery and the Victoria & Albert Museum. If there's time, we'll go check out Picadilly Circus and possibly the London Eye pre-Ceremony of the Keys, since that doesn't start until 9:30 p.m.
7. Sunday, Nov. 2nd - Either go to Hampton Court or go to Sir John Soane's Museum and then to Covent Garden Piazza for some shopping. I'm still not sure which I prefer.
So how does that sound? Too busy? Not busy enough? My husband and I aren't really early risers so I tried to take that into account! :P
