London parks, markets and museums

Jump to last reply

Hi, we'll have 2.5 days in London and I'm looking for feedback. We are a family of four, but teens will probably split off on their own so it will be me and DH for most of the time. We've already been to London and have done the things you'd expect: the Eye, the Globe, Big Ben, British Museum, Tower of London, etc. For this trip, we'd like to focus more on London's parks and markets, with a museum or two thrown in, and at a pretty relaxed pace. We're not into shopping, gourmet dining or guided tours -- would rather explore on our own.

With that info, what are your thoughts on this schedule?

Day 1: arrive early afternoon (after arriving in the UK a few days earlier, so no jet lag)
- London Wall by the Tower
- Churchill's War Rooms, St. James Park, National Gallery
- Abbey Road Studios (yes, I know it's the St. James Wood station)
- canal boat ride from Little Venice to Regents Park
- is this too much for ~7 hours?

Day 2
- Borough Market for breakfast
- Covent Garden
- maybe a pint at The Lamb and Flag?
- Hyde Park/Kensington Gardens
- maybe Buckingham Palace?

Day 3
- Victoria & Albert
- Natural History Museum
- a good indie coffee house
- what else?

Thanks for your feedback!
