Help with London Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hello! I’m planning a trip to London the last week in September, from the 24th to October 2nd. I will be there one day earlier, joined by my Mother and sister on the 25th and flying out on the 2nd. I’ve tentatively decided on the Grange Beauchamp for out hotel, but haven’t ruled out the Lime Tree yet either. I’m needing some help with my itinerary and as usual am asking for advice here! I am trying to see what we consider “must do’s” but without just going from one museum to the next. My Mother’s birthday is Wednesday, so I’m also trying to work in a two day/one night trip to either Bath or the Cotswold’s and would welcome suggestions there (realizing we'll be double dipping on a hotel, but it seems easier than trying to get back to Heathrow for a 7:30 AM flight on Sunday). My questions are – is this feasible/in a logical order? Am I allowing too much time/not enough? Suggestions for dining around these areas, or additional activities to break up the museums? I've inquired about a beer/cheese tasting at Leadenhall and a Stonehenge sunset tour. Will also try to fit in a play/musical.
