Tripadvisor experts we welcome your comments!
This is a rough draft of our 4 day itinerary, first trip to London from June 19 to June 22.
We are a family of four, two teenagers 13 & 16 years of age.
Day One: Thursday, June 19th
Arrive at Heathrow 7:45am. Customs, ATM, Oyster cards for travel to Travelodge Euston (booked).
10:30 am arrival at Kings Cross. Purchase 7 day Travelcards / photo IDs (jury is out on this or Oyster, still working on the math).
12:00 noon lunch, hopefully early check-in (if not luggage storage at Access Self Storage).
Rest of the day spent getting situated and outdoor sight seeing in the Westminster area.
We'll do this until we drop, hopefully working through the jetlag. Crossing fingers for good weather.
Day Two: Friday, June 20th
8:30 am, take the train to Windsor Castle, be there when it opens. Changing of the Guard etc. Return after lunch sometime, stopping by the Royal Academy of Music Museum & Gift Shop (classical musicians, need souvenirs for friends back home!).
Question: Do the 7 day zone 1-2 Rail-cards help on the train trip to Windsor Castle?
Rest in the afternoon.
Dinner at St. Martins Café in the Crypt.
Billy Elliot at Victoria Palace Theatre (booked).
Day Three: Saturday, June 21st

12:30 ish Nice sit-down lunch in the Tower of London area (Dickens Inn?) Suggestions?
