Pip Pip, Cheerio!

Remember how I told you guys that I would be accompanying Jon on a business trip? Well after many cancellations, re-scheduling and hemming and hawing we are heading to London this Saturday!

After so many cancellations and re-scheduling I had actually backed out of the trip but then Jon called me from work last week and said that we were a go for this coming Saturday through Wednesday...was I in? As fate would have it, my schedule fell in to place...and I'm in!

I have been to London twice before but only for about a day each time (it was a meeting place for the Contiki tours I went on). Needless to say I am thrilled about having a couple days to tinker around in London.

Here are some things that I am hoping to do while in London.

-Picadilly Circus
-Go on a tour of Downton Abbey (squee!!!)
-Go visit Bath
-Go on a tour of the Tower of London

Basically I am beside myself excited!
Do you have any suggestions for "must see's" while in London?

Have fun!! I was just in London last week and the weather was brilliant, warm & sunny, I hope it holds for you!
Suggestions for things to do:
See a show (there is a Tckts booth in Leicester Square with half price tickets for same day shows, it's definitely worth checking out!)
Go on a river taxi (you get to see Greenwich, the Tower of London, Westminster etc
Visit Kensington Palace & Kensington Gardens
Go on the Warner Brothers Harry Potter tour (20 mins by train from London then a 15 min shuttle bus ride)
Visit the Royal Observatory Greenwich and see the Mean Time line, then walk down towards the Maritime museum and the Cutty Sark.
Ride on the London Eye (book online first to avoid the queues!)

PS I think the Highclere (Downton Abbey)tours are fully booked already for 2014 but you could always try and get tickets online!

I would suggest that you check out the London Eye. I do not know much about London or ever visited there. I hope that you had a lot of fun on your trip and you enjoyed yourself and saw everything you wanted to
