My 16 year old daughter and I will be taking a short, 6 night trip to London, arriving Oct. 26@11:45am. We're staying near Hyde Park. Any suggestions on stuff to do that 1st day, including cheap eats? (We love Indian food)! I'm assuming we'll be jet lagged that 1st day, so was thinking of taking a bus tour of the city to give us an overview of London. By the way, do you know how long jet lag from the U.S.A. will last?
Stuff we want to do:
* British and Tate museums and National Portrait Gallery (which one do you recommend)?
we get that "English charm" at Cotswald? Is Oxford worth viewing? My daughter dreams of going to college there)
* Markets (We are foodies! Heard Boroughs is best for food)?
My daughter adores everything about England, especially it's historical architecture, culture and "way of life". She dreams of living there one day. She's not into seeing the hip, club scene, etc. Any suggestions would be so appreciated. I want to make
our 1st trip to London special!
