Family of four heading to London this Friday. Yes. A woman who normally would have had the i's dotted and the t's crossed basically has a flat rented in the Mayfair area and our flight booked. Suffice it to say, life has happened, and didn't allow for any planning. I have just spent a good portion of today going through posts and trip reports. It has been a while since I have been out here, but I am always grateful for all the wonderful information that fodorites share.

After reading all of these reports and creating my own file, I will need to digest and create an itinerary to get feedback from the experts. I do have a request; however, what day trip(s) would you say are musts? The we, DH is a self-imposed overworked architect who loves all things architecture, history, art and food; DD is coming from her first year of college at an art and design school as a fashion major, loves history, art, food, all things harry potter, and shopping; DS is a high school senior who has a bad case of senioritis, loves military history, will tolerate 15 minutes of art, will not tolerate any shopping, likes history in general, good food, harry potter fan and wifi so he can connect with his friends at night. Their interests cover mine (well I don't need to connect with my son's friends), but I do like gardens, I just don't know if this is a good time of year for them.

We arrive late Saturday morning, and leave the following Saturday, so basically 6 1/2 days in London. While my family would like to go to Stonehenge, I just don't know if it is really worth it. I would love to go somewhere for a day trip that would give us a different perspective from what we will have in the city. Any suggestions. I don't know if more than one day trip would work. My children are overall good travelers since they have been to so many places in the US, Rome, Berlin and Milan. They loved Rome. It's all about balance with the outdoors and museums/indoor activities.
