My family and I will be in London for three and a half days in July after spending two weeks in Ireland. We are firming up our London itinerary and are open to suggestions and feedback. We know we won't be able to see everything and are attempting to prioritize the sites we want to see with our limited time in London. Our goal is to see the amazing sites but not to wear ourselves out before heading home. Thanks for any input.
Sunday (1/2 day) arriving at 5pm - we are planning an evening hop on hop off tour.
Monday - Westminster Abbey (planning on a verger tour), Big Ben, and House of Parliament. We already have tickets for Phantom of the Opera in the evening so need to save time to get back to the hotel to get ready and get dinner.
Tuesday - Afternoon Tea (Aqua Shard). Tower of London and Tower Bridge after Tea.
Wednesday - Buckingham Palace for changing of the guard, National Gallery, and then to the Borough Market.
Thursday - travel day home
If we have the time then our secondary sites are St. Paul's Cathedral and Abbey Road.
