day trip to London from Paris on Easter Monday 2014

Hi

My Mum and I are travelling to France and Italy in April. On her bucket list is to visit the Tower of London so I am thinking we could travel over for the day before heading back to Paris and then training to rome.

Is the Tower and other attractions likely to be open on Easter Monday? I could look at going directly from London to Rome as well. I have booked (yet to pay) for accommodation in Rome from the 22nd April.

thanks heaps

Everything will be open, yes. Personally I would do an overnight at least before flying to Rome from London. I would expect Easter Monday to be a busy (i.e not cheap) day to travel between the two cities with lots of locals at both ends trying to make the most of a long weekend.

People here recommend the tours of the Tower guided by a Beefeater, so look at that first before you tie yourself into a particular timing - especially if the Tower is your main destination!

If you are going to make this trip, book your Eurostar train tickets now. The cheapest tickets at Easter will already have sold out. Prices will go up as the travel date gets closer, and the trains may well sell out.
