London 2nd time around

Jump to last reply

First I want to thank everyone who responded to my post last year which made our trip a success. We spent 9 days (including flights in and out) last year and stayed outside of London (an hour from Paddington Station) and visited the following: Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, St. Paul's Cathedral, Cabinet War Rooms, Bath, Oxford, Stonehenge, Windsor, passed by Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Trafalgar Square, London Eye (line was super long) and watched Wicked. We didn't walk quite as much as we'd like to as it was cold and rainy during our visit. This year, an opportunity came up and we visiting London again. Due to some schedule changes, our planned trip of 3 days (just passing by as opposed to staying longer) became 6 days (including flights in and out) and as a change, we will be staying at a hotel near King's Cross. We will arrive on a Sat (around 5pm) and will leave on a Thursday (around 9pm). I figured arrival day is for taking the train from Heathrow to King's Cross and for resting (jet lag), and we've booked Book of Mormons on Wednesday afternoon. I was thinking of the following itinerary, Sunday to visit my friend, Monday to visit Hampton Court Garden (3/4 of a day), Tuesday to Wednesday morning to visit York, which leaves Thursday as a free day. I wouldn't want to visit the National Gallery or the Portrait Museum as we're visiting Paris on the same trip and have planned on Louvre Museum and Orsay Museum. Please factor in that we will not be leaving our hotel earlier than 10 am (DH will just not wake up and be ready before that time). I'm open to suggestions on whether to visit York or another destination for an overnight trip and how to fill up the days to make it a more compact. TIA!
