Sample London Itinerary – summer 2006
This is Day Three of a five day tailored itinerary created for a forty-something couple. It was the first visit to London for one and a return visit for the other. They were interested in full days with galleries, gardens, shopping and food all playing major roles in their plans.
day three - saturday
After two full days spent exploring the centre of London, today you will head beyond Zone 1 and discover ‘south of the river’. Given your relatively early night last night you will be raring to go this morning and the day is packed! This itinerary is filled with more ideas than you will be able to comfortably fit in a day so do what interests you most and fits your mood.
overview of the day:
Today takes you to lovely village of Richmond-upon-Thames in the morning, then over to the Southbank for the afternoon and ends with some classical music and a picnic in Hampstead Heath. Put on those comfy shoes and let’s get going!
After breakfast at your B&B walk up to Victoria Station and hop on the District Line tube going south to Richmond (please note that not every train goes to Richmond so be sure to confirm the final destination is indeed Richmond before you hop on). It will be the last stop and should only take about 20 minutes. Depending on which TravelCard you decided upon you may need to purchase a ticket for Zone 4 today.
Once you arrive in Richmond you will be surprised by the small village feel of this special place. It is picturesquely situated on the River Thames with many small cobbled streets and more green space than any other London borough. A town map is enclosed. If you feel inclined to stop at the Tourist Info Centre it is located at the Old Town Hall on Whittaker
