Is this itinerary doable for two first-timers to London?

Jump to last reply

We are two active 60+ yr old adults on our first trip to London at the end of June. Please critique our tentative itinerary. We welcome any suggestions. Our last day in London we kept pretty open to allow for some wiggle room to shop/visit a site we might have had to skip due to time running out.


Day 1 (Monday): Arrive at Heathrow at 7:30 AM
Take taxi (justairports.com) to lodging at St. Katharine Docks
Purchase Travelcards (7 day) from Nat’l Rail tx booth at London Bridge or Fenchurch St
Explore Kensington Palace & Gardens/ Hyde Park
Tea at Orangery
Harrods??

Day 2 (Tuesday): Tower of London at opening (9AM)/ Tower Bridge
St. Paul’s Cathedral
Globe Theatre?? (worth seeing???)
Westminster Abbey
Big Ben

Day 3 (Wednesday): Day tour already arranged for Cotswolds

Day 4 (Thursday): Buckingham Palace—changing of Guards
St. James Park,
Trafalgar Square—brass rubbings at St. Martin
Churchill War Rooms
Theatre in evening?

Day 5 (Friday): Greenwich or Kew Gardens (Any votes on which one to see??)
Ceremony of the Keys at 9:30PM (already have tickets)

Day 6 (Saturday): Portobello Road Market
British Museum
British Library

Day 7 (Sunday): Victoria & Albert Museum

Day 8 (Monday): Fly home

Thanks in advance for all of your help!
