8 Day London Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hey guys! I'm making my first trip to London next May with a couple of friends. I know it's a bit early to be planning, but we want to have at least a basic idea of what we'll be doing and how much we'll be spending. We're going to be in London for 8 full days. We'll also be in Amsterdam for 2 days, Edinburgh for a day trip, and Paris for 2 days. Here's an example of the itinerary that I came up with based on a couple of blogs/websites I visited.


Day One:
Buckingham Palace
Westminster Abbey
Parliament
Trafalgar Square
Picadilly Circus

Day Two:
The British Library
Covent Garden

Day Three:
Harrods
Camden Market

Day Four:
Tower of London
Tower Bridge
South Bank

Day Five:
Kensington Palace and Gardens
Victoria and Albert Museum

Day Six:
Thames River Cruise
Hyde Park
Portobello Market

Day Seven:
Leicaster Square
West End

Day Eight:
Last minute shopping and sightseeing.


I'm most interested in the history (royals, WWII/Holocaust, et cetera) and shopping, one friend is most interested in the nightlife, and the other is most interested in all things Sherlock and Dr. Who.

We're also going to be doing two walks (Sherlock Homes, Blood and Tears), a bus tour, and one of my friends would like to see Platform 9 3/4. I feel like the first day is overly crowded compared to the other days, so if you guys have any suggestions on how to make it flow better...i'd appreciate hearing them!

Also, if you have any suggestions on Paris, Edinburgh, or Amsterdam, they'd be much appreciated. In Amsterdam we're going to the Anne Frank house, for sure. Paris we're mostly focusing on a 6-8 hour trip to Versailles and seeing Notre Dame. Possibly the Louvre as well.

Thank you all in advance!
