First Time to London; 14 yrs old; 24 hours

Jump to last reply

Imagine you are 13 or 14 again and you have never been to Europe. You've been given a chance to get a taste of London with 24 hours to spend there--midday Monday to midday Tuesday in mid June.

You've been to many of the larger cities in the US and you love the energy of NYC, the history of Boston and Philly, the buildings (esp Sears Tower) in Chicago, and the topography and architecture in SF. You aren't that interested in museums. You mostly enjoy seeing the sights and soaking in the atmosphere of a city.

You think you want to see Big Ben/Parliament buildings, London Eye and Tower Bridge, (but really have no idea the scope of all there is to see)

You are arriving in London via Euston and leaving via St Pancras so your hotel is in the area of those stations.

What do you do? And how (one of those hop on/off buses, tube/walking, etc)?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
