I am planning our first trip to London and am very much in the initial planning process. We will be in London in mid to late May and are two sisters in our 20's, both of us are fairly fit so lots of walking is fine!
Here is our very preliminary plan, so any advice is very much appreciated!
Day 1 - Leave the US for London
Day 2 - Arrive at Heathrow around noon. We will likely be staying around either Pimlico, Lambeth or Southwark. On this day, I am thinking we will just get settled in our Apt, do some grocery shopping, and if there is time, explore some of the local area.
Day 3 - Buckingham Palace (just outside), Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and looking at the Parliament buildings, and the London Eye.
Day 4 - Morning half-day tour of Stonehenge, but I have no idea what to do the rest of the day... maybe if day 3 was too full we could finish it today?
Day 5 - Free morning, afternoon Doctor Who tour ( 2 & 1/2 hours), and the Tower of London and river cruise.
Day 6 - Now, for this day we have a train to Paris, but it can be really any time so if a half day could or should be spent somewhere, what do you suggest?
Also, I do realize that some of these things and dates might need rearrangement for any closures etc,. But like I said, this is merely the first draft of what we hope to be able to do. It is even possible that we may add days or make a jaunt to elsewhere to the UK.
For now, I would love to hear from anyone that has done something similar to what we have here, or even anyone that has any tips for first timers like us!
