How's this order of sights in London?

Jump to last reply

Mom and I are finally leaving on our long-awaited second trip to England - in four weeks! It's time to nail down the London itinerary. The following are mom's top choice of things to do. We'll be in London 4 nights at the start of our trip, staying at Premier Inn County Hall. We'll be returning to London from a short tour for an additional two nights, so I've broken this into two segments. I'm really just looking for feedback on whether there's a better way to order these sights and if it all sounds easily doable.

4/25 Fri - arrival mid-day, check in to hotel and walk around Westminster. No real plan - just walk and deal with jet-lag, then get to bed at a reasonable time.

4/26 Sat - Walk to Buckingham Palace in morning, take time to admire views from St. James Park, then visit Queen's Gallery and Royal Mews. Figure each will take about an hour. Walk to Hyde Park Corner, catch bus to Kensington Palace, spend a couple of hours there. Take bus back toward Trafalgar Square for easy walk back to our hotel.

4/27 Sun - Train to Hampton Court Palace, spend better part of day there. Return to London late afternoon, go to Westminster Abbey organ recital in evening (5:45 pm)

4/28 Mon - EITHER: Visit Westminster Abbey upon opening (9:30), then cruise to Tower around noon and spend a few hours. Stop at Tower Bridge to see exhibit and views from walkway if we have time/interest (open until 6:00) - OR: Cruise to Tower in morning (but wouldn't get there until 10:30; opens at 10:00 on Mon.), then cruise back to Westminster early afternoon, visit Abbey and stay for evensong. Which would you do?

5/3 Sat - Visit St. Paul's in morning (would love to go to evensong, but they have a special service that evening instead), then leave afternoon open for whatever we feel like doing (National Gallery? Museum of London?)

Thoughts?
