My 7 year old son and I are accompanying my husband on a business trip. He will be working the entire time so I am planning for my son and I to take in as much as possible on this once in a lifetime trip for us. I don’t care for a lot of shopping; prefer to keep things simple and efficient. There are so many amazing things to do here that I am afraid we will miss something spectacular or waste time at something we should skip. We have a few small tours planned already and an appointment time at the Warner Brothers Studio Tour.
Day 1 –
We arrive at Heathrow around 10 AM and we are staying near the Tower of London.
I am hoping that we can get to the hotel and then head out about 1 or 2 and visit:
Grant Museum of Zoology
St. Paul’s Cathedral
Day 2 –
Natural History Museum
Tower of London
Warner Brothers Studio Tour
Day 3 –
Royal Walking Tour – Buckingham Palace, St James' Palace, Changing of Guard
Albert Memorial - Walk by
Kensington Palace - May just walk by
Diana Memorial Playground – Let my son play a few minutes
Day 4 –
Muggle Tours - Harry Potter London Tour
Day 5 – ??? Have nothing set in stone for this day. Would like to get out of town a little, maybe see additional castles and or the beautiful countryside.
Leeds Castle ?
London Eye - just plan to view
West Minster Abby
Hamleys Toy Store
Am I planning to much or not enough? Am I missing something that I shouldn’t skip? As I said earlier I doubt that I will ever get the opportunity to come back here so want to make the most of it. Don't mind navigating myself, prefer not to spend a lot more money than I have to, but at the same time don't want to miss something spectacular. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
