We are a family of five with three teens, 15-16 years old. Our first trip to Europe together in August will include five full days in London. We will be staying in a flat near Leicester Square. We want to see all the major sites during the day, leaving most evenings free for dinners, music/theatre and strolls. I am struggling a bit with the intinerary which I post here. Please provide me with any comments or suggestions. Thanks!
Saturday, Day 1. Fly into Heathrow at 12:05pm. Arrive at rental flat mid afternoon. Walk around the west end, go to London Eye.
Sunday, Day 2. Take a sightseeing bus tour around London. Go to Camden Lock Market. Walk around the east end.
Monday, Day 3. Tower of London. Westminster Abbey. House of Parliament. Walk around Westminster.
Tuesday, Day 3. British Museum. British Library. Platform 9 3/4.
Wednesday, Day 4. Buckingham Palace. St James Park. Churchill and Cabinet War rooms. National Gallery.
Thursday, Day 5. St Pauls. Walk around the city. London Bridge. Globe Theatre.
We would also like to cruise up the Thames to Greenwich. How could we squeeze this in?
