Last minute tips or ideas for London, please.

Jump to last reply

We are repeat visitors and have been quite recently, but I thought I'd run down my itinerary and ask a few questions. Also, if anyone has any great ideas, I'd be happy to hear them.

We were in London for a few days in October, but I wasn't well and was under a lot of horrible stress and pressure, so this trip is a do-over. In October, we enjoyed art and shopping, but didn't get to any restaurants, other than a lunch and a snack.

This time, we are moving slowly, and have dinner reservations for every night of our week.

For art, we plan on seeing the Manet, the Man Ray portraits, and Nature photographs of the year, which are at the Natural Science Museum.

We are seeing a dance performance at the Barbican (Deborah Colker).

Places I have never been :
British Museum (I know!)
The Saatchi Gallery
Tate Modern (I know)
The Wallace Collection

Of course there are more, but these are at the top of my list.

We have a day trip planned to Cambridge. We were going to try to visit Ely Cathedral on the same day, but have curtailed that part of the plan.

We are staying in a London Perfect apartment at Queen's Gate. Using Oyster cards and 2-for-1 offers through our round trip Gatwick train tickets.

I would love to hear about the possibilities of repertory film in London. I expected to be able to easily find a lot of venues and listings (hoping it would be like NYC) but I'm not having much luck. I would appreciate any guidance on this topic.

Also if anyone has visited any galleries or exhibitions lately that were great, I'd love to know.

I guess that's it for now. I just want to talk about my trip.
