London 3 day interary advice

Jump to last reply

Doing a short layover in London after 2 weeks in Italy with our 14 & 11 girls.
Here's our tentative plan & would love your input on timing and if there's any omissions:

Day 1:
Arrive Gatwick @ noon. Southern line into London.
-Purchase 2 1-day TravelCards @ Victoria Station to allow for 2for1 deals
-Taxi to hotel (Premier Inn-County Hall)
-Planning to hit sites near our hotel:
+Churchill War Rooms
+Walk past Big Ben/Parliament
+London Eye if weather is clear

Day 2
-Arrive for Tower tour @ opening
-St Paul's Cathedral
-Picnic lunch eat on a river cruise
--Afternoon: Britsh Museum/Library
-Quick stop @ King's Crossing for a Harry Potter photo op
-Spend evening near river (Millenium Bridge?)

Day 3
-Westminster Abbey
-Buckingham Palace (catch some of the guard change)
-Bus or tube to Harrod's for a late lunch
-Kid's choice afternoon: do whatever they want
-Catch Wicked @ Apollo Victoria if tickets availabe

We are purposely not doing a lot of museums after being in Italy & we fiugre since a lot of sites are near our hotel, we could be flexible about when we see them.

Suggestions? Better strategy for order?
