[another] London Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Family of 4 (kids 12 & 9) heading to London for 16-19 February (back end of half term). Arriving via train into St. Pancras at 10:30 am on Thursday; leaving 11:30 (am) on Sunday. Staying at the HI in Mayfair (Green Park Tube). Looking for input/suggestions for the following itinerary.

FYI, we visited the Tower of London and Windsor on a different trip. I'll be more flexible than implied by the itinerary, but I like to have a base plan.

Thursday
Kings Cross to Green Park, drop bags at hotel
Quick lunch
Tube to S. Kensington
Natural History or Science Museum
Harrods

Friday
walk around time (?)
10:45 Royal London Walk (from London Walks)
lunch
More Wesminster Abbey time if desired
London Eye

Saturday
TKTS
Covent Gardens or Borough Market
British Museum w/ London Walks (2 pm)
Evening show

Sunday
sleep in, breakfast,
Harry Potter platform
catch train

Plenty that didn't make the cut and will have to wait until next time (St. Pauls, Churchill War Rooms, day trips, etc.).

Not to keen on the logistics to get to Borough Market. Might save that for another trip and "just" do Covent Gardens.

Friday is best logistically for the Eye but we can shuffle around if the weather is much better on Thursday.

Thought about the British Library on way in, but I don't want to bother with the luggage.

Son wants to hit Hamleys, but that's fairly close to our hotel so we'll fit that in.

Question on TKTS: how much before 10 should I arrive? And how long will it take to process? Too much to try to squeeze it in before 10:45 walk at Green Park, right?

Comments/suggestions?
