3 full days in London July 1st week

Jump to last reply

DH & I will be in the UK from June 30 to July 7 before going on a cruise, we will have 3 full days in London and my plans are as follows:
Day 1 - British Museum & Library ( plus Tate Gallery? I know it'll be rushed but I absolutely must to see the Turners again! )
Day 2 - morning Westminster Abbey and Houses of Parliament, afternoon Buckingham Palace
Day 3 - National Gallery and Greenwich
Day 4 - leave for Southampton. via Salisbury/Stonehenge?

We arrive by train from Edinburgh early July 4th and will check into Hilton Paddington, after which we are free for the day. Now for my questions:
- we'll need an Oyster card, not a Travelcard, am I right?
- how does one get to Greenwich, is it better to go in the morning or afternoon?
- how early do I need to book the Vergers & Buckingham Palace tours?
- can we get last minute tickets for shows at Leicester Square or do we need to book ahead?
Thanks in advance for your suggestions and comments :)
