Leaving the kids at home this time

Jump to last reply

Last summer, my hubs and I took our three kids (15, 13, 8) to London for nine days. We hit a lot of spots, including:

Museum of London
Tower of London
Hampton Court
Westminster
St. Martin-in-the-Fields
saw War Horse
did a Ghost Walk
London Eye
went to Stonehenge
spent time at Portobello Road market
Kensington Gardens (palace was being renovated)
Churchill War Rooms
walked a lot -- down Piccadilly, around St. Paul's (although we didn't tour)

This time, we're going to the British Museum via London Walks. The hubs didn't get to go to Stonehenge becaue he was working, so he wants to go, and I want to spend more time at the Salibury Cathedral. We want to see Sweeney Todd. I'm going to Fortnum and Mason because I want to see the store.

What other suggestions do you have? I know we missed lots. I want to go to Spitalfields and the Borough Market. Hubs has to work one day in Parliament, and I'm going as a note-taker (already OK'd. Very excited about it.)

We have eclectic tastes and love things off the beaten path, so suggest away! What's your very favorite London spot??

We're leaving in a week.
