I know that over the next few weeks, many will post itineraries for you to peruse, so I thought I would get mine in there. I've been tweaking it for months as new thoughts came to light. I post this keeping in mind that itineraries are made to be altered and that I will not be able to see all that I want to see in only six full days:
Sat. June 16 (arrival night before, staying at Renaissance CC)
Stroll down to the Mall area to see part of the Trooping the Colour processional
Walk around (it's our first time!) - maybe Covent Garden or up to Camden Lock Market
Spamalot (thought about eating at Rock and Sole Plaice en route)
The Magical Mystery Walk from Tottenham Court station 10:55 am
dinner at the Museum Tavern or Belgo Centraal perhaps?
Monday (moving to Royal Horseguards at some point today)
British Library in the am
Westminster Abbey - verger tour 2:30 pm
Considering a London Walks tour: Along the Thames or Westminster by Gaslamp
Hampton Court Palace Day!
(Maybe the London Eye in the am first.)
When back from HCP, if not exhausted, consider the Cabinet War Rooms or St. Paul's or the Globe or simply strolling...
Wicked - maybe eat at Jenny Lo's before?
Oxford Day - not sure whether to do on our own via Oxford Tube or go with the London Walks tour
National Gallery stays open late - peak at Sunflowers, etc.?
Ceremony of the Keys
Tower of London
Midsummer Night's Dream at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre
Caledonian Sleeper to Fort William from Euston Station that pm
I haven't made restaurants a big part of our itinerary. I've made a note of where interesting pubs, etc. are located so that we can visit them if in the area at mealtime. Don't care much about shopping but a market would be fun.
Am open to any and all suggestions. Thank you so much!
