Going to London for the first time at the end of May ALONE

Jump to last reply

Never taken an "Alone" trip before but it's about time! London for 7 days / 8 nights booked a car from the airport so I don't have to stress about that. Staying Central London at a Hostel, but is there anything I should watch out for traveling alone as a female? I am from Chicago so used to City life, probably won't plan on being out after dark alone, as I don't do that here at home. I may be a little over cautious :)

I want to do a lot of sightseeing and just casual observations like sidewalk cafes, etc. I almost went to Paris but a little worried about the language issue being this is my first solo trip. I am trying to pack light, however, having a car for the airport that won't be a huge issue anyway.

Planning some walking tours, gardens, museums, maybe Wicked if I can grab a discounted ticket. I want to go see Big Ben the typical tourist things. One thing I would really like to see is a castle, how far would I have to go for that?

Thought of a day trip into Paris but not sure I want to give up that much time for it.
