Ten Days in London (July 4th - July 13th) - Itinerary Planning

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to plan ten days in London for my wife and I (26 &26). I want to maximize time while minimizing costs (thus maximizing the use of rail passes, cheap days for ticketing... etc).

July 4th: Arriving in to LHR at 10:00 AM and travel to Apartment in Zone 4 (rail line). I don't plan on doing much this day besides getting acclimated with local area, doing some grocery shopping, etc, etc... We may try to venture into and out of London just to get acclimated with rail journey.

Thursday July 5th- Thursday 12th are open and thus we are really planning an eight day itinerary.

July 13th: Need to be to LHR for a 1:35 flight to Rome.

All of the classic tourist sites in London are on our list (don't expect to spend too long in Museums). In addition, we would like day trips to Oxford and Bath (I am wondering if the train tickets will be cheaper on the weekends???).

I'm comfortable enough with doing everything on my own so save money on tour fees and the sorts but know I'll need to plan extensively in order to maximize our time.

Where do I start?
