London Itinerary Help

Jump to last reply

Hello, my wife and I planning a week vacation to London (and a week after in Paris) in September. We are both 40 years old, no kids and we live in Chicago. We are staying in the Westminster area. I would appreciate some critique of our tentative itinerary.

Day 1 – Saturday, September 14th
• Arrive at Heathrow at 11:30 AM
• Walk around Hyde Park/Kensington Gardens and explore a bit.

Day 2 - Sunday, September 15th
• Buckingham Palace
• St. James Park
• Trafalgar Square
• National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery

Day 3 – Monday, September 16th
• Tower of London at opening
• Remainder of day open

Day 4 – Tuesday, September 17th
• St. Pauls Cathedral
• British Museum
• British Library Special Documents Room

Day 5 – Wednesday, September 18th
• Trip to Windsor Castle
- See Changing of Guards here

Day 6 – Thursday, September 19th
• Westminster Abbey at opening
• Churchill War Room
• Cabinet War Room (??)
• Imperial War Museum

Day 7 – Friday, September 20
• Train to Paris early morning

I’d like to fit Victoria and Albert Museum in. Are we not including any of the can’t miss sites? Are the days laid out reasonably? Is there anything we should book in advance? If you have any suggestions, please advise. Thank you in advance
