Does anybody fancy helping me with a London plan please?

3 full days
2 adults and 2 16 year olds

One day they want to go to the zoo; we will take them there and pay for them and leave them for the day with a picnic and then collect them. Meanwhile we'll probably go to Wahacca and to Sir John Soanes, plus maybe the National and Portrait galleries.

Any ideas for the other days please? I imagine it'll be a mixture of doing things together and them going off for a couple of hours. In the evenings, we'll stay together.

Thanks. smile

Don't 16 year olds just want to hang out? I would buy them a pre pay oyster card, give them some spending money and just arrange to meet again in the evening.

Thanks everybody.

DrWitch - I want a mixture of them going off together and us doing things altogether. If it was my two dds I would let them go off, as dd1 is v used to the tube. But dd2 and her friend are not used to London and don't want to just go off altogether.

Canteen on the southbank also sell fish finger sandwiches grin

smile That might work for fussy friend, I guess!

So far I'm thinking -

arrival day - Spialfields/Shoreditch maybe?
next day - dump them at the zoo for the morning whilst dp and I go to Primrose Hill and then meet them and go to Camden possibly. We could maybe fit something else in too then?
next day - the Harry Potter tour and something else?
Last day - National/Portrait/Carnaby Street for them and Liberty for me/Covent Garden / maybe China Town

I need an events manager now though to fine tune it all! smile

The cable car! You missed the cable car!

Hello! If you're in London for that long, then it'll be very useful to have this app that we use with you. It's called Haystacks and it's available for the iPhone. It is specifically for London and lists thousands of locations and hundreds of events searchable by area or what's near you. We use it and many of my friends do too. Hope you have a good few days!

Agh - can the cable car fit in there anywhere? I still need an events manager! We also need to do the tourist walk of Trafalgar Square to the river to Number 10, Buck Palace, Piccadilly I guess, for cheesy photo opportunities?

Thanks AnuC but no iphone (no phone at all, in fact!).
