4 Days Solo in London

I will be spending four days by myself in London from May 26-May 29. My friend is joining me on the fifth day but she has been to london before. I have never visited London and was wondering of the major attractions would you suggest for a solo traveler, i.e. london eye, tower of london, westminister abbey, tate modern museum, trafalgor square...

I'd start by looking at the destination guide at this site for some good ideas as to locations, itineraries.

I'd add..Covent Garden, St James Park, National Gallery, Brtish Museum...

For a new city, I think some kind of overview bus tour is a good way to get your bearings.

After you have a list of things you want to see and do, ask your friend what things she will want to do. That way you can go to the places she isn't interested in seeing this time around and save the other sights to tour together.

If you're interested in museums, I recommend the British Museum and the National Portrait Gallery for a start--but you choose, depending on your interests.

Any of the sites/tourist attractions are absolutely fine for solo visits. So I agree w/ cw -- check w/ your friend about what she thinks you'll be doing together.

Not really possible to make useful suggestions w/o knowing which places you you are visiting w/ her.
