Refining London and Scotland

Jump to last reply

Hello Fodorites- you were all very helpful with initial structure of our trip (March posts) . Recap fam of 4 11 y/o boy, 7 girl. Active, adventurous eaters, Potter fans. Booked: flight Toronto (huge discount over Detroit) to London arrive on Aug 1, hotel in London aug 1-4 (St Ermins), Caledonia sleeper on the 4 th to Edinburgh for the fun of the train ( to be booked promptly at 4 am Detroit time this fri as I have called last 2 weeks in a row), Mon & Tues The Links hotel in Edinburgh, tues night tickets to Tattoo received. Wednesday open yet. Thurs & fri with family in Glasgow area. Open jaw home Sat am out of Edinburgh.
1. We missed getting tickets for the Tower Keys ceremony. I was a bit saddened as I didn't realize that had to be booked so far in advance. Is there anything else anyone would recommend booking ahead? I am trying to book Warner Bros tour for fri am early ahead. Walking or bus tours, tea, St Paul, Tower of London, Magna Carta, Brittish Museum, London Eye I was gonna take these on more flexibly. should I plan more concretely? (Daughter wants Paddington Station to see bear, son wants King Cross for 93/4)
2. The 2 for 1 ticket thing- train from Heathrow to hotel no help? Caledonia? Oyster for Thurs - Sun?
3. Still undecided for wed in Scotland- day trip to country? Loch Ness? B&B rent a car?
4. Any advice for still enjoying Edinburgh despite the Fringe? Favorite places to eat?
5. I love a good street market - Camden? Other favorites?
6. Evening places to hang out with kids in either city? Live music? Street acts?
I know I probably tried to cover too much in one post- eh I've seen what you brilliant people can do. Thanks in advance!
