What attractions to prebook and when?

Jump to last reply

We're about two weeks away from London, and I'm wondering whether prebooking any attractions in London (and later in Edinburgh) is worthwhile and, if so, how soon to do it?

I have rough schedule of what I want to see, and in London, only Hampton Court Palace is ticketed and the rest are free. No one likes standing in long lines, but we don't think a London Pass or equivalent is worthwhile, as most of what we want to see is free and we'll use Oystercard to get around. So I'm tempted to prepurchase Hampton Court Palace if that means we will be able to pick up tickets at "Will Call" and walk right in.

However, what we end up doing and when will be to a large extent up to the weather, so I don't want to get locked into too much too far ahead.

In Edinburgh, we'll want to see the Castle and Holyrood Palace. Based on your recommendations, we'd also take a Rabbie's tour to Stirling Castle and Loch Lomond.

So, do you all see any advantage in prebooking the above places/events and, if so, how soon should we do so? Is a day or two before sufficient to get any benefit or should we do it now?

Thanks in advance.

David the Vagabond.
