My husband and I are visiting London in late October. I have been before several times, but this will be his first visit. we will have 5 days before heading north to see our daughter in Scotland. I have stayed in the Kensington and Paddington Station areas before but am thinking a more central location in the City for him. He is a huge history buff and I would love to step out the door of the hotel and have him see historic London. I love the area around St. Paul's, also Trafalgar Square, but I am open to anything, especially if a tube station is close.
Any suggestions of historic sites that we might otherwise not know about or miss would be appreciated as well- especially if they are military related.
