London vacation, 1st time in UK

Jump to last reply

Hello, We are a family of 3 (me, husband and 17yr daughter) taking our first vacation in Europe. Our dates are July 2-10, 16. We fly July 2 out of NC to Heathrow July 3 at 8:45am and return July 10th leaving at 3:45pm. We are staying in the financial district. I'm trying to figure out what are must see's and should we attempt to do a day trip or two? Paris and Stoneheage are the day trips we are thinking of. Our daughter wants to see a Shakespeare play (Midsummer Dream) at the globe and a broadway production like the "Lion King" .

I'm trying to understand the 2for1 tickets and the oyster card and the other discount cards available.

We want to see some much but know we don't have time to see all, a reason to go back.

We will be the typical American family going to the touristy places but I'd like to find some really cool things that are not so advertised. Like if you where to come to NC, I'd show you some really neat things not on the beaten path.

One big thing is I'm a huge Harry Potter fan, my family tolerates it for my sake.

Also maybe some suggestions for eating? Budget is moderate, thinking $10 for breakfast $15 for lunch $25 for dinner? Not saying we couldn't grab a juice and pastry for breakfast.

Suggestions, ideas, links, help with my rambling.................
