Discount Card and itinerary for London for family of 4

Jump to last reply

We are travelling to London with our family of 4 in April. I have been to London (it has been a LONG time) but my family has not. We are traveling into Heathrow and only have 3 nights (all week days). We will be staying at an apartment on the River Thames by St Georges Wharf. Here is the current tentative plan:

DAY ONE
Hop on the Sightseeing bus to get an overview of the major sites that we won't have time for (Big Ben, House of Parliament)

DAY TWO
Take transportation to Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey and ?

DAY THREE
Take transportation to St Pauls Cathedral and Tower of London (as I recall Tower of London is a big day) and ?

DAY FOUR
Depart for France by train

* What discount card would be appropriate for this itinerary (all weekdays) for sites and transportation so we don't have to stand in line all the time?
* Would the tube best the best form of transportation?*
We definitely want to utilize the fast track system so we don't wait in line. Do we need for these sites?
* If you have a different recommendation on itinerary I am all ears.

What is the best airport shuttle company from Heathrow? FYI...taking a train is not a possibility with our luggage (we have a special needs daughter that is not a big help).
