I'll be in London in mid-August for a few days with my teen daughter. She's very interested in Henry VIII and his wives so the Tower and Hampton Court are must-sees. Westminster Abbey is a must for me, and I would like to see St. Paul's Cathedral as well. My daughter wants to shop.
How much time should I allocate for each of these? Most of the day for Hampton Court and half a day for the Tower? I already purchased tickets for the Tower -- good idea to do so for Hampton Court as well?
These is what I'm thinking for our itinerary:
Thursday: arrival, walk around, maybe visit Westminster Abbey, maybe some shopping
Friday: Hampton Court
Sat: visit friend in Bristol
Sun: London Walks Harry Potter tour in afternoon (another of DD's obsessions), not sure about the morning
Mon: Tower of London and other sightseeing -- trying to figure out priorities -- or maybe just more walking around and shopping.
Tuesday: early departure
Does this sound reasonable? We want to see lots of things but not be completely exhausted.
