London in a week -- itinerary overview

Jump to last reply

Hi all, I am taking my first trip to London in about a month (end of February) and have come up with a broad itinerary. I just wanted to see if people thought it was realistic and/or if they had any suggestions on how to add/subtract/reorder some of the elements.

Some notes:
- I will be traveling by myself, although I will be staying with a friend in Shepherd's Bush. This is my first trip to London.
- I'm definitely more of a history/architecture guy than a fine arts and design guy, which skews my museum tastes a bit.
- I'm trying to strike a balance between dropping dead of sightseeing exhaustion and having no plan. I'd like to have each day feel complete but not have to feel overly rushed. I like walking a lot and am trying to avoid museum fatigue.

SAT: Arrive. Flight gets in around 12, but due to customs/immigration/possible delays and travel to the city, I haven't budgeted anything for the day just in case. In the happy case that I get in on time and do not feel like a zombie, I will push forward some elements of the trip and add some other stuff.

SUN: Walk by Buckingham Palace, St. James's Park, Houses of Parliament, Big Ben.
Imperial War Museum in afternoon.

MON: Tower of London in the morning (possibly a Yeoman warder tour? Worth it?)
St Paul's Cathedral and walk across Millennium Bridge. If extra time, East End for pie and mash (adventurous eater!)
Ceremony of the Keys at night (tickets already received -- this is fixed)

TUE: Westminster Abbey first thing in the morning, verger tour 10:30-12.
St Pancras for Eurostar to Paris (train at 14.01)

WED: Paris - no help needed here

THU: Arrive back at St Pancras at 14.03.
Photo op at King's Cross for the Platform 9 3/4 sign.
British Library exhibition room.
Tea at Orangery
If time, shopping

FRI: London Transport Museum
British Museum
Shopping (Harrod's, Harvey Nichols)

SAT: Museum of London (thought I would do this at the end of the trip once I have a slightly better personal acquaintance with the city, in order to fully appreciate it)
DLR to Canada Water, Greenwich/Prime Meridian possibly or boat trip back on the Thames.

SUN: Heathrow and return to US!
