I’ve been excitedly perusing my new Fodor’s travel guide ever since my local UPS man left it on my doorstep Monday. I’ll have a few days in London before my residency at The Globe begins in June, and I’ll be using the time to explore as I adjust to eight hour time change.
I’ve only traveled to London once in my life, and I’m not sure if my stay really counts. I was traveling to Uganda, and had an eight hour layover on the trip over, and an overnight stay while heading home. I honestly remember three things:
- Being told to “mind the gap”
- Big Ben
- The tiny fan in my hotel room that tried so very hard to cool me down, but colossally failed.
That said, I’m excited to finally get a chance to really explore London. The question is: Where do I go? The British Museum is definitely on my list of places to visit, but honestly, I’m overwhelmed. With just three days completely to myself, how I do I even begin to choose what to do?
So I’m asking you: What are the “must see” places for a basically-first-time visit to London? I’m definitely taking suggestions.
