Itinerary for London

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone--I will be visiting London in early June (the same week as Spring Bank Holiday). It's my first time there since 1987. I was there three times before: '84, '86 and '87. Spent a lot of time on the King's Road then, and visited St. Paul's, Madame Tussaud's and the Tower of London. I never got to see the Crow Jewels, however, and the '80s were a long time ago.

I'm trying to plan my itinerary loosely. I will be arriving early afternoon on a Sunday, and don't plan to do much that day except maybe a hop on, hop off tour, a meal and early bedtime. Will depart the following Sunday.

What do you think of the following? Too much? I also want to add that I might want to get out of London for a day. Someone here recommended the Cotswolds' Secret Cottage tour, or I was considering Warley Place in Brentwood.

So here goes:

Must Do:
• Highgate Cemetery (should I dedicate a whole day to this?)
• Victoria & Albert Museum
• Kensington Palace & tea at the Orangery
• Westminster Abbey/St. James Park
• National Gallery & St. Martin’s in the Fields Church
• British Library
• Meeting a London friend (not sure of details yet)
• Fortnum & Mason
• Museum of London
* West End play (already have tickets for Thurs. evening)

Want to Do:
• Crown Jewels at Tower of London
• London Eye (possibly...I don't really like heights)
* Harrods
• Bookstores? Cecil Court
• Warley Place, Essex
* Cotswolds
* St. Paul's

If Possible:
• Earl’s Court-TARDIS (photo opp)
• King’s Road/World’s End

The price of rail tickets makes me a little hesitant to plan anything outside of London.

Thanks very much!
