3 Days in London - Help Me Plan!

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be in London for 3 days (well, almost 3 days) in mid May. Neither of us have ever traveled to Europe and are unsure what should be at the top of our list for sightseeing/shopping/etc. We are both 25 years old and don't mind walking, we also aren't "touristy" (i.e. waiting in lines for hours to see something from 500 feet away that looks exactly like what you can see on Google for free).. But we would like to see/do things that are really worth seeing/doing in person. We both love shopping, parks, history and food.. not necessarily in that order. ;) We are both foodies, so restaurant suggestions would be great too!

We know 2.75 days isn't a very long time (from there we are traveling to Paris and then to Barcelona), and we don't want to try and pack our schedule so full that we exhaust ourselves on the first leg of the trip. So, having said all of that, what are the Must-See-In-Person stops we should definitely make during our stay in London?

*Also, one last note, we'll be staying 2 nights/3 days near Regent's Park. However, at the end of our trip we will be staying one night (our last night) near the Heathrow airport. Our plan is to wake up early in the morning and visit Windsor Castle for a few hours and then back to the airport for our departure in the late afternoon. So Windsor Castle can be marked off the list... Unless of course there is something more worth seeing than the Castle in the Heathrow area? :)
