The bf is coming to visit me from Toronto on Thursday. He’s never really been to London before, except for about seven hours on either side of our European adventure in August. So, I tried to plan out a perfect week in London for him so that he falls in love with the city.
I thought I’d post it here in case any of you are planning a trip to London and need some ideas of things to do. I’ll be working during the day of his first two days here, so I only planned things for the evening.
Day 1 (Thursday) – Dinner at an English Pub on the Southbank and walk along the Thames.
Day 2 (Friday) – Ride on London Eye, followed by curry on Brick Lane
Day 3 (Saturday) – Traditional English breakfast, sightseeing around Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Piccadilly Circus, Oxford Street, Trafalgar Square, Hyde Park, Kensington Palace. Evening – Ministry of Sound
Day 4 (Sunday) – Borough Market, British Library to see the Magna Carta, and original manuscripts of many British classic novels – Beowolf, Alice in Wonderland and music scores (several Beatles pieces), British Museum to see some of the best artifacts in the world.
Day 5 (Monday) – Party in Camden (The part of town where Amy Whinehouse use to live.)
Day 6 (Tuesday) – Buy half-price tickets for a West-End Show from the TKTS booth in Leicester Square, show in West-End in the evening.
Any other things that I should work in?
