London area, England, 7 days

Jump to last reply

I am the same guy who posted the other message about visiting London, I am leaving in a few weeks. My thinking or planing has evolved since then and now I don't want anybody to see my other thread.

In general I like art museums. Typically I like the sort of over-detailed old paintings from before photography was discovered, not that other stuff won't be worth glancing at. There are 6 art museums I have read about that seem appealing. (National gallery, Wallace Collection, Victoria & Albert museum, Tate Britain, Courtald Gallery, Dulwich Picture Gallery). I probably want to acquiesce to the fact that I will skip some of them and see other stuff.

I probably want to see:
British Museum
Buckingham palace
Tower of London
Museum of London
possibly Hampton court
possibly Kew Gardens
Possibly skip some of this and see Stonehenge and/or Bath.

So far I only bought one play-ticket. I'm not sure whether I will be too board on the the other evenings.

Other information:
I have a reservation for 8 nights in a Hostel in Soho in London. I don't drink or smoke. I am a single man traveling alone. I don't cook, I'm on a radically restrictive diet high in fruit. My approximate budget does not include food because I don't think I can or will spend more on food than I do on average on any other days.

$2,500 or a little more as a budget guess?
-$1,984 (hostel + airplane tickets)
-$40 play ticket
= $476 left for train rides, admission fees, entertainment, and so on.
