My husband has been to London before, I have a few days solo there in May (leaving next week, ack!) and we're going back together in the fall. So I have a list of things to see/do that he's already seen, as well as things to save for the next trip. On the list for next time: Westminster, Hampton Court, South Bank, Buckingham Palace. Would appreciate feedback on my upcoming solo itinerary.
Saturday, May 11
Arrive around noon. Get to accomodations near Euston. Settle in. Would love to hit Portobello, but afraid I'm arriving far too late. So maybe Covent Gardent or Camden Market instead?
SUNDAY, MAY 12
10 a.m. -- Tower of London (arrive when opens, head straight to crown jewels to avoid queue later, then back for the Yeoman tour)
afternoon -- Victoria and Albert (sadly, Bowie sold out)
9:30 p.m. -- Ceremony of the Keys (back to the tower)
MONDAY, MAY 13
Windsor Castle (Changing of the guard at 11 a.m., but will it take all day or should I plan more for this afternoon/early evening?)
TUESDAY, MAY 14
a.m. -- British Museum
p.m. -- St. Paul's Cathedral
WEDNESDAY, MAY 15
Off to the Cotswolds!
Interests: architecture, churches, art and design, history and culture, theater. Other things I'd liek to incorporate: Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, British Library, St. Martin in the Fields, at least one show (maybe Phantom, I know it's cliche! but it's London! or Mousetrap?).
I normally like to go-go-go on vacation, and although I feel like I have been doing mounds of research, I'm worried my days are far too light! I'd rather have plenty planned and drop things, than find myself with extra time and no idea of what's nearby.
Thanks in advance for the help!
