Draft London Itinerary - Thoughts/Advice?

Jump to last reply

I've been enjoying reading everyone's trip reports and looking at tips around itineraries. Now it's time to nail ours down and I'd love your advice!

Husband and I are in our late 20s. Very active, like to go-go-go most of the time on trips. That said, we do like to take our time at sights. We don't like to run in and out in 5 minutes just to say we saw it. We're staying in the Westminster area. Planning to get 7-day Travelcards at a rail station and use 2-for-1 deals. Not planning around the 2-for-1s, but they can't hurt!

Here's what we were thinking...
Day 1 - Saturday 8/31
Arrive Heathrow around 11:30AM
National Gallery & maybe National Portrait Gallery in the afternoon
Have tickets for a play at 7:30PM

Day 2 - Sunday 9/1
Tower of London first thing
Tower Bridge
St. Paul's Cathedral
Globe Theatre
Seeing Macbeth that night at the Globe

Day 3 - Monday 9/2
Buckingham Palace in the morning (have tickets already)
Westminster Abbey
Cabinet War Rooms
Parliament (not sure if we want to take a tour?)

Day 4 - Tuesday 9/3
Boat ride to Greenwich
Maritime Museum
Observatory
Train back
Tate Modern
Dungeon? (Heard this isn't worth it? Sometimes we like cheesy things.)

Day 5 - Wednesday 9/4
Victoria & Albert Museum
Kensington Palace

Day 6 - Thursday 9/5
British Museum
British Library

Day 7 - Friday 9/6
Hampton Court
Kew Gardens

Day 8 - Saturday 9/7
Portobello Road Market (early!)
Kensington Gardens
Hyde Park

Day 9 - Sunday 9/8
We fly out at 3:00PM so theoretically could do something until about noon

Some days look a little light... anywhere we could add on? We're interested in a pub tour or any cool walking tours - any suggestions?

Also, should we flip Day 1 and Day 6? Not the play, but the attractions?

Thanks!
