OK, so I'm going to London for a week next month. I'm staying at a friend's flat, in Kensington off Brompton Road. Anyone familiar with the area? Any good restaurants?
Things I know I want to do:
The Tower (including a lot of what's inside, so possibly most of the day inside)
See the changing of the guard
Walking tours - especially ones that showcase architecture, royalty, or both
I will have most of the days to myself, as my friend has to work. But we're both doing the museum, so that'll be a weekend thing.
Things that I might do, depending on other factors:
West End show
Jack the Ripper tour
Victoria & Albert museum
Double-decker bus tour
So, what am I missing? Remember, I only have a week! If there's something you think I shouldn't miss, let me know!!
For any of you Londers out there: do I need to get advanced tickets to any of these events? Nothing is set in stone except arrival and departure from the airport, so a couple days in advance is no problem.
I am very excited about this trip!!
