I'm not sure the best way to do this. Should it be by area or by tube line? And, are areas walkable?
We are a group of 7 so we will be together or may split off. I don't have these days set on any particular day of the week. We arrive on Wednesday and leave on Tuesday morning. I thought we'd do the British Museum on Friday so we can stay late, and we have Globe theatre tickets on Saturday night.
Arrive from Cotswolds dropping car at Heathrow and taxi to hotel in Southbank near Southwark
Afternoon visit to Imperial War Museum and maybe London Eye
Full day Hampton Court - take train there and boat back
Full day Tower of London
Walk to British Museum
St. Paul's by 5:00 for evensong
dinner and then back to British Museum for evening (Friday)
Buckingham Palace -maybe changing of the guards or just view exterior
Guards Museum close by- maybe the men want to see?
Victoria and Albert Museum
Natural History or Science or Sherlock Holmes Museum (for some of our group)
Westminster Abby/ Big Ben/ Parliment
Churchill War room nearby for whoever wants
walk by #10 Downing
Walk up Whitehall to Trafalgar Square
National Portrait Gallery
I'm not sure if grouping these like this makes the best sense? Are there days we should avoid certain activities? For instance, should we avoid the Tower on the weekend or any ideas concerning crowds. We will be there the beginning of August.
I'd love to hear any suggestions.
Thank you !
