London Itinerary Help

Jump to last reply

We'll be celebrating our 35th anniversary in September with a first-time trip to Europe! Our first stop is London. Would appreciate any help/suggestions with the rough draft itinerary we've put together for our 4 days in London. We've rented a flat off St. Martin's Lane (Leicester Square closest tube stop). Any feedback much appreciated!

Day 1 - Head to Trafalgar Square; walk down The Mall to Changing of the Guard Ceremony.Take tube Victoria Station to Embankment (Embankment Gardens pretty picnic area-below Savoy hotel). Sandwich/food shops around tube station. Or lunch at Café in the Crypt at St. Martin-in-the-Fields.Take West End Walking Tour.End at Wolsely 160 Piccadilly for tea (or Waterstone’s Bookstore, 203 Piccadilly, 5th floor bar great view; also has afternoon tea). Dinner at Salsbury Pub? Other option: 8pm Wednesday night jazz at St. Martin-in-the-Fields

Day 2 - Walk to Green Park Tube Station and board Big Bus Hop On-Hop Off Tours. Tour entire red tour, then switch over to Blue tour at Marble Arch.
Get off at Harrods; continue to Victoria & Albert Museum, Kensington Gardens (picnic?) or The Orangery at Kensington Palace.Back on bus to Tower Pier; take river cruise to Westminster or Waterloo Pier depending on time.(5pm Evensong service at Westminster Abbey). Take Westminster Walking Tour. London Eye before or after.

Day 3 - Take tube to Tower of London; take tours (Crown Jewels/Beefeater)
Cross Tower Bridge to Jubilee Walkway and continue to Borough Market (open 12-6pm). Take London Bridge tube back to flat.

Day 4 - Thames River Festival on South Bank. Check out Tate Modern? (Level 7 restaurant & bar with views of St. Paul’s Cathedral). Walk across Millennium Bridge to St. Paul’s Cathedral (Evensong at 5pm); stop at historic pubs on way back to flat (Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, The Blackfriar).

Day 5 - Eurostar to Paris
