Hi there -
We (2 adults and 11 year old boy) are going to be in London from July 28-Aug 3 and would like to finalize hotel, travel pass vs. oyster card and schedule.
We have 3 hotel rez at Hilton Tower Bridge, St. Pancras Marriott and Clarendon Hotel (Holburn tube). These hotels have similar pricing more or less but which one is best in terms of location/transportation?
We are also taking the train to Paris on Aug 3 (late ) and will be back in London on Aug 8 before flight to Canada next day.
Which is a better deal for us? travel card or oyster card?
Below is a draft of our day to day schedule: Not sure if too much :)
hotel check in and purchase transportation tickets
Walk around Piccadilly, get tickets to show (War horse, stomp)
Thames Rib at 6pm
Tower of London
HP Muggle Tour
Markets - Portobello/Ottolengi
St. Paul's Dome
Bus- Hop on/off or Walk the Mall
Changing of the Guards
Stonehenge/Bath/Windsor combo all day trip
Victoria and Albert
St. Pancras to Paris
Greatly appreciate your input re sched, hotel and travel card/oyster card. Cheers :)
