We are starting our 1 month European vacation in London a month from now. Please let me know your thoughts on my itinerary. I'm traveling with my husband, two teenage daughters, and my 70 year old active mother-in-law. We are staying in an apartment in the Shoreditch neighborhood.
Also, thoughts on visiting Nottinghill? I love rows of brightly colored houses. I'm not interested in the market there, but am wondering if the neighborhoods are quaint for wandering through.
I did not list all the biggie sites (Big Ben, etc.) because I am assuming we will see them all through all of our time exploring. (I have them all marked on my google map and my husband has travelled to London many times).
Sunday: Flight arrives at 8pm.
Monday: Fat Tire bike tour @ 11 am, British Museum (1-2 hours), Nottinghill for walking around and dinner
Tuesday: Day trip to Cambridge. Bike tour, pub, and punt in Cambridge. Return home around 5pm. Dinner and explore near apartment
Wednesday: Churchill War Rooms, wander Soho and Covent Garden, Westminster Abbey tour and Evensong service. Possibly London Eye for kids and grandma while my husband and I sneak off for quiet dinner.
Thursday: Tower of London, Borough Market, explore what we've missed or want to see again (possibly British Museum again), Billy Elliot @Victoria Palace Theater
Friday: checkout and train to Paris 11:30
