I have been lurking these boards for some time now, and you all seem to have quite a bit of knowledge of London, so I figured I would post my itenerary and get some input from you all.
We are spending 12 days in London with a 2 day trip to Paris. Some of this is set in stone, because we've bought tickets, like the shows and the train to Paris.
I've also located pubs nearby all the morning attractions so we can eat lunch and have a pint there.
