My wife and I are planning our first trip to London at the end of May. The flight arrives ~21:30 at LHR, so I am assuming we will be at the hotel around midnight. Still being on Boston time, I can't imagine will will just want to check in and go to bed. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do for a couple of hours after midnight? We are staying at the Waldorf Hilton, are in our early 40's, and are not drinkers.
Is the walk from Aldwych to Westminster Abbey safe at that time of night? How about suggestions on a late night bus route for a quick tour? Are any restaurants at Covent Garden still open?
Thank you for your suggestions. As an aside, I tried Googling "London after midnight", and got mostly information on the band, and the TALF provided some suggestions on pubs (which again are of no interest at this stage in our lives).
Your insight and suggestions are appreciated.
