I am very fortunate to travel with my company on business for 8 days to London but I will be working all of that time with not much time to explore. I have extended my trip another 3 days so I can enjoy London without the business side! It has been a life long dream to go to London and will complete one check mark off my top 20 bucket list however I need some help if possible because its a short short time!
My company has me staying in London City and I thought for the 3 days I would move my accomodations to more Central London where I can stay at a hotel near sites but also make it easier to be able to hop onto a tour quickly or just be closer to where people meet for tours.
I had planned on a free day to have afternoon tea at The Ritz London and go to local places (another 8 year dream about to happen of having afternoon tea) but wanted to see if you can help with suggestions of the "location".
Which area would be best as I will during those 3 days be alone.
The idea is to go around by foot - Harrods, Local sites, Maybe Victoria & Albert Museum, Flea Market perhaps or local market, any local history of course (Tudor, Royals, Authors) but also to be able to walk to a place where I can meet others for various different tours where they pick people up. I am assuming all meet at one location. Even if its walking a mile that is ok. Just nearby etc.
Perhaps grab a quick bite in the area. 3 days are short but I need to make it work because its a priceless extension of my business trip!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you have any hotel recommondations 3-4 star it would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you so much!!!!!!!
