Eloping in London, honeymooning in Paris!

Jump to last reply

Hello! My fiance and I are in our mid-late 30s. We are both educators and have decided to save the cost of the wedding and instead have a symbolic ceremony and honeymoon in Europe. This is a dream come true to travel to Europe, and now with the man of my dreams!

We will be arriving in London early in the morning on March 17th, and will have that Saturday, Sunday, and Monday to explore. Our ceremony will be on Tuesday, the 20th, morning before we take off by train to Paris until the 25th! I have put together the following list of place of interest for each (no particular order). I am sure we won't have time for everything. How long for each? What should be moved off or down the list. Any pearls of wisdom to make our first trip to Europe and special moment in our lives would be GREATLY appreciated!

London- 3 full days:
Tower of London + Yeoman Warder tour
Tower Bridge
Sky Garden
St. Paul's Cathedral
Westminster Abbey
Changing of Guards
The Shard
Platform 9 3/4 at Kings Crossing
HP Muggle Walking Tour (2.5 hours) *total HP nerd*
Kengsington/Hyde/St James Parks
London Eye
Camden Market

Paris- 4.5 days:
Notre Dame
St. Chapelle
Palais (Opera House)
Moulin Rouge

I have started planning with London, and have not fully researched either city- any additional suggestions?

Thank you,
