2 Week Euro Solo Trip - UK, Paris, Brussels

Jump to last reply

I'm planning my first ever trip to Europe in June-July. I've done my best to do my own research but it is definitely an overwhelming process, so I could use some help in getting me on the right track.

I've already booked my flight in and out of Heathrow from 24 June to 8 July, so I'm working on filling in my itinerary for everything in between.

TRIP GOALS/PRIORITIES
---------------------------
Experience London - Not just sightseeing but would like to be fully immersed in the culture/lifestyle
Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff (hours: 10am-5pm) - I'm a huge Doctor Who fan
Paris (2-3 days)
Wimbledon (Runs from 27 June - 10 July) - Would like to experience at least one day there
Brussels - For the beer and waffles

OVERALL ITINERARY (Rough Draft)
---------------------------
F 24 June - Land at Heathrow at 9:10pm, planning on staying at a hotel near the airport
Sa 25 June - London - Reserve a public storage locker to store my suitcase for 2 weeks and rely on my backpack; explore London
S 26 June - London/Paris (Transit from London to Paris via Eurostar)
M 27 June - Paris - Walking tour of Paris sites near Ile de la Cite
T 28 June - Paris - Musee d'Orsay & other sites
W 29 June - Paris/Brussels (Transit from Paris to Brussels via Thalys)
Th 30 June - Brussels
F 1 July - Brussels/London (Transit from Brussels to London via Eurostar)
Sa 2 July - London
S 3 July - London
M 4 July - London/Bath
T 5 July - Bath/Cardiff
W 6 July - Cardiff - Doctor Who Experience, transit back to London via train
Th 7 July - London
F 8 July - Depart Heathrow 12:20pm

PARIS ITINERARY (Rough Draft)
---------------------------
Day 1 (night only)
Arrive around 5pm
<Open to suggestions on what to do on a Sunday night>

Day 2 (full day)
Walking tour based on suggestions from other threads
Start at Hotel de Ville Metro Stop
Place des Vosges
Ile Saint-Louis
Ile de la Cite (Sainte Chapelle, Notre Dame de Paris, Place Dauphine)
Latin Quarters
Luxembourgh Gardens

Day 3 (full day)
Musee d'Orsey at opening
<This is where I need help filling in>

Day 4 (morning)
<Open to suggestions for anything I may have missed>
Depart Paris to Brussels around noon

Places I need help filling in my Paris itinerary:
Eiffel Tower
Tuileries Garden
Louvre (I'm willing to leave out going inside, but would like to see it from the outside)
Champs Elysses
Arc de Triomphe
Seine River cruise
Any other suggestions?

CONCLUSION
--------------
Here is what I need help with:
I need help planning what order to visit the sites in Paris so that I'm not tracking back and forth or putting too much on one day's agenda. I like a nice, loose schedule to fully experience Paris without feeling rushed.

Should I add another Paris day?

Should I leave Brussels out?

How many days in Bath?

Should I take a trip from Bath to visit Stonehenge?

Anything more to do in Cardiff?

Thanks for reading it this far! I appreciate any suggestions in advance.
