London in 7 days - suggestion needed

Jump to last reply

We are going to London for 7 days. We are a couple in early 30s and our interest is inclined towards parks, events, shopping and landmarks etc rather than museums. Our hotel is near Hyde Park

I tried to consolidate a plan for our and is as below

Aug 29 - Landing at 9:20 AM - Planning to take a Hop on Hop off bus in the afternoon for London Key sites like Buckingham Palace,Trafalgar Square, Big Ben, Parliament, Westminster Abbey, the London Eye and the many bridges that cross the River Thames( Quick look)
. Dinner at at the Sherlock Holmes Pub, near Trafalgar Square

Aug 30 - Bus for a full day tour out to Windsor Castle( see change of guards here), Stonehenge and Bath

Aug 31 - A morning tour of the Tower of London
The afternoon visit to shopping areas including Portobello Market, and Piccadilly Circus.

Sep 1 - Westminster Abbey in the morning.
Head for the South Bank for a trip on the London Eye.

Walk along the South Bank Walk, heading towards Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. The Walk runs alongside the River Thames and we can see such sights as the London Aquarium, Jubilee Gardens, Royal Festival Hall, the National Theatre, Tate Modern, and several bridges, such as the Millennium Footbridge and Waterloo Bridge

Sep 2 - Trip to the British Library in the morning, where there is a room full of literary treasures on display - is there a tea here?

For more shopping, go to Oxford Street.

Sep 3- British Museum in the morning , Visit to London Zoo, The Regent Park

Sep 4 - Visit Buckingham palace in morning, Hyde Park visit

At night, Take a dinner cruise along the River Thames

Sep 5 - Filght back to US in afternoon

We can not cover everything in the trip but please let me know if I am missing any garden , park or landmark in the plan which is a must watch. I have a couple of questions regarding this plan

Aug 29 as we land the same day, will be able to do sightseeing of all those key places in about half a day or should I give it 1 more day?

Will I be able to see change of Guards in Windsor castle( Aug 30) if we take a bus at 10 AM from near our hotel?

Should I buy a London pass or London for 2 . I have not bought any tickets yet except flight going to London and hotel reservation.

Are there any events during this time which I am missing?

Thank you so much in advance!
