Traveling to London alone ! Need advice/help

Jump to last reply

Hello !

I'm 20 years old and am on the cusp of being able to go to London. The only problem is that my friend who lives in Oxford (2 hours outside of london) can only house me for three days. My dad, I thnk, would allow me to go by myself if there was something more "structured" for me. Like a...tour? I'm not too sure. I didn't think my dad would let me go by myself so I stopped looking, but he brought it up at breakfast this morning.

So really what I'm looking for is some advice from anyone who has ever been to London (by themselves or not) and can help soothe my dad with...I don't know, whatever could help give him that extra push to let me go.

Also, if anyone has any advice about traveling alone and what to do while in London (or paris? :) let me know !

Tentative Dates: Aug. 15-aug.23 or 24

Thanks so much,

Jess
