    Default That there London

    A bit of advice needed please

    3 nights only - Novotel Excel, it looks ideally placed to do the O2 by cable car on the first evening for a bit of a stroll around and a meal (Goblet age 9 - it's her treat really so I have to go with the Frankie and Bennys flow)

    She wants to do the Tower, the London eye and the Natural history Museum

    I thought London Eye by boat from Canary wharf?

    I fancy V&A and I want her to see the National Gallery

    any other must see's?

    any advice?

    any help really


    Things we've sussed - visitors oyster card for me (I had a normal one but gave it away) and she can travel for free


    Just to throw another random into the pot - 2 adults and Goblet for 2 nights, then just me and her for the third - but everyone is happy to do everything

    Hyde Park on a sunday morning, particularly Speakers Corner. Bayswater Art Market on Sunday is lovely for a mooch. If you are at the eye, wander across the bridge and grab the tourist bus, it's a great way to get about and see other things to do. If it's not too busy they will knock loads of cash off.

    I love the British Museum, and the British library is a thing of beauty.

    I get the feeling that 3 days just won't be enough

    we'll be so busy cramming in the essentials that all the little gems will get lost

    British library shall be on the list though

    The London Dungeon , which is next to The Eye.

    The Millennium Bridge , which was the one which got twisted up in 'Harry Potter'.

    Harrods , for a look see.

    And a ride on an open top sightseeing bus, for getting a feel of the place.When you need a bit of a rest :-)

    The Natural History Museum, always busy but fascinating. If you can do a night bus trip, I'm not sure if you live in a city or town but when you're from the sticks it's quite something. Victoria and Albert museum is another favourite. But you're right you won't have time to do it all!
