Planning our trip in London

Jump to last reply

My sister and I are planning a trip to the UK, this is the first part of our journey and the main things we'd like to see that first week if at all possible. We've already purchased a 3 day London Pass and a 7 day Great Britain Heritage Pass. We will most likely be getting an Oyster card and some type of rail pass, but have not nailed down those specifics yet.

Day 1
Arrive at Gatwick, in the morning, hopefully get to our hotel (near Victoria Station), rest some, Leave hotel and head to British Museum and stay there from aprox. 1-3 pm, then head to British Library from 3-6pm. After that maybe get a picture of Big Ben...but not a high priority. Get some supper and get back to hotel for an early night to get as much sleep as possible. (yes, I will be somewhat jet lagged, but I'm hoping I'll be in fairly good shape to see the museum and library) Main question would be: How long does it take to get from Vic. Station to British Museum and Library? Does this time frame seem reasonable?

Day 2

Leave around 8am, to go to Windsor and be there from aprox. 10-1 go back to London, try to see Westminster Abbey from 3-4:30 If possible try to see Big Ben, and Buckingham Palace for picture purposes. Hopefully be back at hotel around 8-9pm. Unless we try to do a Thames River Cruise. Possibly fit the Handel Museum in here, but not sure if that will work.

Day 3
Get an early start this day
St Paul's 8:30-10am,
Shakespeare's Globe 10-12:30 (not sure on the times of tours etc...) (no shows, just tour stuff is my goal)
London Tower 12:30-3
Hurry next to get to Churchill War Rooms from 4-6. Possibly could even squeeze Handel in here somehow Is the timing I'm giving this realistic? Suggestions on how to improve it?

Day 4
Wimbledon stuff from 9-12 am (not sure of exact times for tours, etc...)
Kew from 12-3
Possibly do Handel museum, and anything else major we may have missed, if we are able to do our schedule as planned, maybe we can fit in National Gallery/Portrait on this day, or on Thurs and Fridays they are open longer. Jewel Tower, is another thing on our list, but not a major one.

Day 5

Attend service at the Metro. Tabernacle Church. I'm wondering if anyone on these forums has visited this church before or attends there? Any suggestions? I'm not quite sure how long we will spend here yet, but my goal is to go back and get our luggage, and then head to Oxford. Spend the night in Oxford then next day...

Day 6
See Blenheim Palace, early as possible, hopefully leave the Palace by 2pm? Kind of flexible here, get our luggage then head to Bath, ideally, be in Bath by 6pm. Maybe catch a show, or see a major site if time or energy permits.
