Suggested Itinerary for 5 Days in England

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone. I've been lurking around this forum for a couple a weeks now, trying to plan my trip, and everyone seems so helpful, I thought I'd ask for some help with my itinerary.

I'm a 20 year old college student who is going to be taking courses for five weeks at the University of Cambridge (Emmanuel College) starting the first week of July. The professors running the study abroad program built in a long weekend so that we could explore more outside of Cambridge. I was originally going to use the weekend to go to Paris with a group of other students, but last minute, my mom decided she couldn't pass up the opportunity to travel outside of the country for the first time, and chose to come with me. So we're going to be seeing as much as we can of England.

Here are a few sites/activities we want to partake in:

-Tower of London
-London Eye
-Big Ben
-Buckingham Palace
-Madame Tussauds
-Muggle Tours (quintessentially tourist-y, I know)
-Tate Modern
-Stonehenge and Bath (figure this will take an entire day)
-Harrods
-Trafalgar Square
-Camden Market
-A play on the West End
-Afternoon tea someplace nice

I'll be getting to London around 2 PM on a Thursday and leaving in the evening on Monday, if that helps. Any suggestions on the order of events, or even restaurants or other attractions we should see would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

Note: Things that have been left off the list like the British Museum and Library and Westminster Abbey are only not there because I will be seeing them as part of my study abroad program. I wouldn't dream of not seeing them at all.
