We're arriving in London early on Saturday which will give us three full days to see the highlights. While we know we'll be exhausted when we get there, we do have a list of places to see and things to do for our few days in the city. We are staying at the Renaissance Chancery Court ( http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/loncc-renaissance-chancery-court-london/ ) which seems like it will be a great location from which to explore.
In no particular order, these made the short list:
The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour - a guided walk including the Apple offices,and Abbey Road Studios, and yes, the Abbey Road crosswalk. www.walks.com
The Tower of London: http://www.hrp.org.uk/Toweroflondon/
The London Eye: http://www.londoneye.com/
Buckingham Palace for the Changing of the Guard: http://www.royalcollection.org.uk/default.asp?action=article&ID=492
The British Museum: http://www.britishmuseum.org/
And of course we'll be serious tourists and take a tour on the Big Bus: http://www.bigbustours.com/eng/london/default.aspx
