7 days in London in Dec with family

Jump to last reply

Dear all

Thanks for all your feedback and comments previously! My family and I will be visiting London in early Dec, there are 5 of us - 2 adults and 3 children (13, 11 and 6 yrs). We will be staying at an apartment near Russell Square station. Here is my draft (100th draft?) itinerary:

28 Nov, Fri - arrive in London, car service from Heathrow to London (although it's a straight shot on the Piccadilly line, I'm not sure I want to wrestle with logistics, kids and bags after a 14-hr flight!)

29 Nov, Sat - Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, London Eye, Piccadily Circus, Trafalgar Square area

30 Nov, Sun - Tower of London, Oxford Street??

1 Dec, Mon - Manchester Day Trip (Old Trafford)

2 Dec, Tue - Shopping, Hyde Park, afternoon tea, catch a show?

>>any suggestions for nice afternoon tea near Mayfair/Oxford St?)

3 Dec, Wed - Hampton Court OR Greenwich (gonna let the kids choose one)

4 Dec, Thu - Stonehenge & Oxford (tour)

5 Dec, Fri - Natural History Museum, Harrods + British Museum (late opening) (and just near our apartment!)

6 Dec, Sat - Eurostar from London - Paris (11 + am train)

Any feedback on the itinerary is most welcome. I wonder if I should also drop Stonehenge? It seems really far although I would really like to see it..just wonder if it's worth a day out from London itself with all it has!
