A few specific London questions

Jump to last reply

DH and I are planning to combine our trip to Paris with a few days in London next May. The first thing to work out is the timing. We're planning for 3 maybe 4 nights, taking the Eurostar from Paris early in the morning the first day and flying home the last day. Are there benefits or detriments to having the London days be over a weekend? Are things closed (in Paris many of the best restaurants are closed on Sundays) and/or is access to St Pauls and/or Westminster Abbey different on Sundays? Any thoughts as to weekend or not (and it would be Memorial Day weekend, not that that should matter in England ro does it?)

Then location. What do folks think about The Strand Palace Hotel. It' seems to be very centrally located and not obscenely priced. We'll only have 2 or at most 3 days. We know we want to see St Paul's Cathedral and Westminster Abbey, and have tea at the Ritz. We'll also want to see the iconic London things like Big Ben and probably Buckingham palace and maybe the Tower of London but don't feel the need for deep exploration or tours of of those things. If the weather is poor we'll see the National Galleries and if it's nice we'll want to wander and just soak in London. We're big walkers and quite fit. Am I correct that we can walk to most of the things we're interested in from the Strand? Other suggestions are welcomed as well.
