First trip to London

Jump to last reply

Greetings,

We are in the beginning stages of a trip to London. It will be our first- we have only been to Europe twice- and not since 2009.

It will be myself (45 year old woman), my husband and our 16 year old daughter. The trip is for her 16 b-day. Her sister had a big party & trip to San Francisco ... This daughter is not a"party" girl - so she picked a trip to London.

We don't have too much time - 2 travel days and 6 or 7 days in London.

Two things that are high on her list:

Theater & Harry potter (don't laugh!) She adoresHarry potter and has going to the Harry potter placecoutsidecof London as a bucket list.

We are flying from Dfw will leave on a Thursday night and return Thursday or Friday the following week.

I am really confused on where to stay- I am thinking apartment? Confused on the areas... We have a ton of Marriott points, but with the three of us that might not be the best idea...
I have to have reliable Internet due to work and school .

Would like a two bedroom ... I admit, I like a little more than sparse... We usually stay at Marriott so very middle of the road - budget is a consideration...

Thinking first or second week of October of 2013..

H e l p :)
