I would so very much appreciate any thoughts or advice you have on my first attempt at an itinerary for our trip to London in September. We’ll be staying at the Marriott London County Hall Hotel right near the London Eye. This is our first time in London so we are trying to pack an awful lot into a week. I tried to group things according to location as best as I could.
Haven’t decided on when and where to do afternoon tea. Thoughts? Didn’t make time for the British Museum (we’re not huge museum people and we’ve already got a couple on here I’d prefer to see). We’ll do the London Eye one night early in the week. Also haven't finalized any restaurants yet.
Did we miss anything obvious? What would you change? Is there anything on the list you’d take off? Thanks in advance for your help and suggestions!
Plane lands at 11:15. Want to have a low-key afternoon. Thought we’d walk around Trafalgar Square, Covent Gardens and Leicester Square.
Hop on-hop off bus in the morning to get a feel for the city. In the afternoon, Cabinet War Rooms, Westminster Cathedral and Westminster Abbey.
V&A Museum, Kensington Palace, Hyde Park, Harrods and possibly Royal Albert Hall (is there anything to “see” here)?
Tower of London, Tower Bridge and St. Paul’s Cathedral.
Seeing “War Horse” in the evening.
Windsor all day.
Tate Modern, Borough Market and Globe Theater.
Will probably see another play this evening.
Buckingham Palace and Royal Mews, Picadilly Circus and shopping along Oxford St./Regent St./Bond St.
Thanks in advance for your help.
