Planning for the British Isles Trip

We have been traveling with two other couples which will make just about every vacation so substantially far more entertaining. We’ll be using another excursion up coming yr in early spring. This time, they are planning to fly a couple days earlier to check out the Normandy region in France just before joining our Viking British Isles Explorer cruise.

Artwork and I expended a week on our have in Paris lots of (several, several) decades back and absolutely beloved it.

Having said that, remembering our initial trip overseas with the young ones to England and Wales in 1990, we made a decision to go there to revisit old recollections. We might expended 6 times in the British Isles when the young ones ended up nevertheless in grade and large faculty. We put in time in Wales, Oxford, and Bathtub but just 2 1/2 days in London. 

We even now managed to squeeze in a lot of stops in London and observed Starlight Convey and Cats throughout the evenings. Granted, the little ones were so drained they fell asleep observing Cats.

Substantially of what we did centered on the youngsters, so we believed it would be appealing to see sites with just ourselves in head. We will be flying in to Heathrow a few times early and Art has booked a tour to Stonehenge, Lacock and Tub the working day immediately after we get there. I am a minor nervous because our flight this calendar year was instead traumatic and we came in a working day late. Ideally, that will not likely occur yet again. 

Artwork and I will then have two and a half additional times to love just before our ship sails. So far, our list of feasible sites consists of Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Tower of London, British Museum, Imperial War Museum, London Eye (probably). Art has booked a area for us at the Montana Hotel in the Kensington spot. (Is Kensington Gardens a place we need to have to see?) We considered taking the prepare from Heathrow Airport to the resort, but do not want to deal with stairs with luggage even while there are no transfers alongside the way.

One particular area we are arranging to practical experience is the Tower Bridge that Art and I did not visit in 1990. We loved the Tower of London 32 decades in the past, but failed to imagine to check out the Tower Bridge. From there, we might consider the ferry to Greenwich (Key Meridian) and maybe go to the Maritime Museum. (Uuuummmm…. you know this is Art’s plan.) 

If any of you have been to or reside in London and have some tips, we would Love to hear it. Since our last vacation to London was a long time back, we know matters have changed and our recollections are foggy. Now there is the Oyster Card or the London Travelcard, the London Pass. Yikes! Which to get? What else is there for us to know? Sheesh! I am stressing out and it’s continue to far more than 50 % a year absent.

Thank you in advance.
