London---I have been a very poor planner, alas

Jump to last reply

ACK! Due to work overload, the flu, and an out-of-town crisis I have done NO planning for my 6 day trip to London that starts on Monday. Have plane ticket, hotel, and a ticket for the Ceremony of the Keys. That's it so far.

Going solo, will ht the usual tourist sites (with less energy than usual as I am not 100% back to normal after a killer flu.) What I would love is for someone to point me in the direction of a quintessential English village oozing with charm and adorableness.... someplace I can visit on a day trip. Maybe just one place in the Cotswolds that is accessible by train? Or Oxford plus one village?

I looked at some day tours...the Leeds Castle -Cliffs of Dover-Canterbury-Greenwich looks like lots of places together that would be tough to see on public transportation. Would anybody recommend this combo? I do not love tour groups but am considering doing just one.

Thanks for not flaming my state of unpreparedness. Usually I am fully armed with an itinerary when I go to Europe but this trip has slipped through the cracks!
