8 Days London-Paris Trip - Requesting feedback, suggestions

Jump to last reply

We family of 4 (kids age 7, 13) are very excited about our upcoming trip to London and Paris in Jun 2012. So far following is our plan.

We would appreciate your comments on feasibility, challenges, additional interesting points to add/remove/substitute, nearby great restaurants on the way to enjoy local food.

Based on current plan we do not see London Pass and Paris pass as cost effective option, but would like to hear your perspective, especially around keeping commute cost in control (walk everywhere is one way to save but may not be feasible option)

1. Day 1 – Friday (Arrive at London)
Arrive at Heathrow (from US) around 10:00am. Store luggage at Excess Baggage facility and further journey with essentials 
Check in at Hotel near Waterloo station. See Big Ben (from outside), visit Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar square

2. Day 2- Sat (London)
Visit Tower of London, St. Paul Cathedral, London Eye (in evening), Piccadilly Circus (night time)

3. Day 3 – Sun (London)
Visit Windsor Castle

4. Day 4 – Monday (London to Paris)
Take Eurostar to Paris from St Pancreas. (Reach Paris Nord by Noon). Check in hotel in southern part of Latin Quarter near metro station. Visit Les Invalides, Eiffel Tower (Evening/Night) , If possible take boat tour.

5. Day 5 – Tuesday (Paris)
Visit Norte Dame, Sainte Chappelle, Jardin Du Luxembourg, Pantheon, Montmarte & Sacre Coeur Basilica (Evening)

6. Day 6 – Wednesday (Paris)
Visit Opera Garnier Palace, Lourve, Tulleries, Concorde Square, Arc De Triomphe (evening)

7. Day 7 – Thursday (Paris)
Visit Versailles, Orsay

8. Day 8 – Friday (Paris to London and leave)
Leave Paris by Eurostar and reach London by noon, Visit British Museum. Go to Heathrow, Pickup luggage from Excess Baggage. Leave London by flight from Heathrow at 9:30pm.

Thank You,
