Hello! I have been working on my schedule and I have a few questions as well. There will be two of us. Here are our Plans. Trip is October 13-21st. We will be staying at the Hilton London Hyde Park.
Day 1- Saturday 13th- Overnight flight from Charlotte to London
Day 2- Sunday 14th- We land at Gatwick at 7:20 am. We plan on doing the Hop on Hop off tour, mostly to get our bearings as this is my first trip to London. We are looking for a place close to the hotel where we can purchase a few groceries for the week.. Any Suggestions?
Day 3- Monday 17th Westminster Abbey ( touring this) Trafalgar Square and Piccadilly circus where we plan to eat at Rainforest Cafe. Should we tour the abbey first? which order should we visit each site?
Day 4- Tuesday 18th-Kensington Gardens and Palace (We plan to tour the Palace and we would like to have tea at the Orangery) Hyde Park and Harrods.
Day 5- Wednesday 19th- St. James Park, St. Pauls Cathedral (Touring it) and Buckingham Palace.
Day 6- Thursday 20th- Day trip to Paris
Day 7- Friday 21st- Half day trip to Stonehendge, Returning in the evening eating at Hard Rock Cafe. Should it be easy to get a cab from Hard Rock back to the hotel?
Day 8- London Eye, Thames River Cruise. We want to be at the London Eye as soon as it opens which it says online will be 10 am. we can depart from the Waterloo pier at 11:30 or 12:10. Is this enough time? We will disembark at Greenwich pier, what would be great to see here? We would also like to visit the Globe Theatre as well. We plan on taking a cab back from Globe theatre.
Any suggestions would be appreciate, this is our first trip so we are excited! Thanks in advance.
