So my wife and I are going to be landing in london as a spring board whirlwind trip in July 2013 (not sure the exact dates so i will use days of the week) Most likely end of july around the 20, so just doing some intial planning seeing as most things cant be booked yet.
I know there will be people who say you can't do london in 2.5 days but I am sorry its all I got.
As long as the same flight is offereed next year as it is this year we should be leaving direct to london landing at 10:30am at heathrow so I figure by the time we get out of heathrow and to our hotel we are talking 12:30-1 This will be a Saturday.
I was thinking since the best way to fight jet lag is fight through it and get on schedule for where you are we have to get out stretch our legs get some air and get going.
I was thinking Since it is light our fairly late in July it gives use some time, I was thinking maybe walking over to big ben taking some pictures maybe do the london eye (Could pre book for later in the day like 5ish or so should be good unless we get a major flight
From this point in am not 100% sure what the best plan of attack is, Neither of us are Big art people so wandering a muesum looking at pantings is not for us old buildings neat stuff like that is good.
I was thinking we might like the following
London Tower (With beefeater tour)
Westminster abby (Prob just the outside since getting i think is a gong show)
Buckingham palace (with changing of the Guard)
Churchilll war room (Could be cool)
That sort of stuff so if anyone has any other ideas or can help string them together that would be great, Some of the stuff like london bridge and any other stuff that is just a picture or a quick visit i think would be great on day 1.
Is greenwhich worth going to is it quick I think it might be neat to see it but only if iits quick.
we leave for paris by train early tuesday morning so I have about half day saturday, Sunday, Monday.
