Review of 4.5 days in London

Jump to last reply

I lived two years in Oxford, but I will have about 7.5 days in London for a wedding next month. However, 1 day is for the wedding, and 2 will be spent on day trips to Oxford and Brighton. So, in practice I only have 4.5 days. I've taken a ton of day trips in and have done many of the major sites, some multiple times, but have never had so much concentrated time there. Wondering if folks can help me think through some options for sights, restaurants, and bars. Here's what on the list. My interests lean toward fine art/paintings, houses and gardens, and I'm staying at the new Hampton Waterloo.

Sites I've seen before but plan to go back again:

- British Museum
- Tate Modern
- V & A and Constable exhibition
- National Gallery
- maybe one of Imperial War Rooms, St. Paul's or Tower Bridge?

Sites I've never been to but will definitely go to:
- Dulwich Picture Gallery
- Kenwood House and Hampstead Heath (weather permitting)

Pick one of these maybe sites?
- Marble Hill
- Chiswick
- Kew and Syon House

Eating/drinking places:
- Gong, or some place to catch a view from the Shard
- Bar in another place in the City/Skyscrapers? Maybe Me London or the new bar at the Containers hotel?
- Another nice hotel bar, maybe like London Edition or one of the more classic hotels?
- A good gay bar?
- Coco Maya for breakfast or dessert
- Bocca Di Lupo for pre-theatre and Gelupo for dessert
- Zadell and/or Chez Elle

Thanks for any advice.
