Pls review late Nov. London Itinerary (for youngish couple)

Jump to last reply

After lurking for several months and planning our trip to London, I have put together a loose itinerary for 6 days in London. My fiancé and I will be in town from Sunday morning to Friday afternoon. It is his first trip and I’d love for your comments on what we have planned, and any tips on places we should add in.

Sunday –
Arrive Heathrow at 10:00 am
Taxi to hotel near Temple tube stop (the tube changes seem unwieldy to get to this area, but would love to know if I’m mistaken!)
Pub crawl (Lamb and Flag, Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, Seven Stars, Ye Old Mitre?)
Mini Cooper tour to get our bearings around town

Monday –
Courtald Gallery
Afternoon Tea at the Savoy or Wolseley
Tate Modern
Oxo Tower for drinks

Tuesday
Tower of London (mostly to see the Crown Jewels)
Thames River Cruise
London Eye (if sky is clear)

Wednesday
The British Museum or National Gallery
Evening: musical in West End (determined by tickets available at TKTS that morning)

Thursday:
Borough Market

I wanted to leave our schedule open to explore on a whim. Now I’m on the hunt to find a few good pubs or bars with some history or cool atmosphere (he and I both love a good unique cocktail). I would also love any suggestions on shopping districts with local flavor.

Thanks so much for your advice and comments!
