I have worked extensively on preparing the following itinerary and thought I would post it in the even that anyone may have comments/helpful hints. I spent a year in London from 1988 to 1989, I have been back a few times to visit friends, but have not visited since 1997....
This is a bit of an impromptu trip, we are a group of three adults, one who has never visited London and one that spend a couple days there last year, so I am trying to put together something that will work for us all.
Arrive in London on Friday ~ noon
Travel to rented flat (expect to arrive 2-3pm)
Spend afternoon wandering
Possible Jack the Ripper tour Friday Evening
Start day at 9am at Tour of London
Work our way back, stopping at the Monument, St. Pauls and/or Westminster Abbey
Meet with friends in the evening to sample libations at a number of locations:)
Trip to Stonehenge/Bath 9A-7P (considering Evan Evans or Golden Tours)
Pub crawl near flat
Get all day hop on-hop off bus tour of London to catch a little of all of the tourist activities, hoping ot fit in Harrods, etc
6PM: Dinner/Theatre combo
Tuesday: Leave flat ~ 10 am for 1pm flight to US
The way I look at it, Saturday could be a challenge, but we can stop at any time...
Comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
