Planning a trip to London

Westminster Abbey

My wife and I are expecting our first child, so before he/she comes, I am trying to plan a trip to London with a few of my friends. Since the weather is nice in London during September, we have decided to plan a trip there. Here is our plan, for now anyway.

Thankfully, from Philadelphia, we have a few nonstop flights to choose from, on either British Airlines or US Airways. We wanted to stay somewhere in a good location, so we chose the Victoria Park Plaza. The hotel is located near Buckingham Palace, and the House of Parliament. Also, since we’ll go sightseeing, it is also very close to the Victoria Underground train station. Even though all of our meals are not included, it’s nice to know that breakfast is, so that helps. The hotel offers free wireless internet in the room, so that will make it easier to stay in touch with family at home.

Buckingham Palace

My friends and I have never been to London, but we’ve always wanted to see the Changing of the Guards at Buckingham Palace, so we’re going to book a tour for a day. The tour will go to Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace and a cruise on the Thames River. Also, while we are there, they are showing one of my favorite movies, “Back to the Future Part 1” at Greenwich Park. So we will definitely be going to see it at the Old Royal Observatory in the park.

Do you have any suggestions on what should I see and where I should go?

If you have ever wanted to travel to London or anywhere from Rome, Venice and Paris, I recommend looking on and see what Apple offers. In addition to hotels, we also offer sightseeing tours and transfers to all our destinations in Europe. Also, we offer escorted tours to Italy and Greece and also an Eastern Mediterranean Cruise!
