oh boy! first of all: i’m so jealous !! i hope you have a fab time!!

favorites in general? or is there something specific you are looking for (art, theatre, food)? in general i would recommend 1 unless you are absolutely dying to see van gogh’s sunflowers at the national gallery or the rosetta stone at the british museum, i would opt for the less-frequented museums like the national portrait gallery, the v&a, tate modern, and the royal academy of arts 2 see something off the west end- theatres i love: jermyn street, royal court, trafalgar studios 3 try out a small plate/tapas restaurant like central and co (in carnaby) or picture (in fitzrovia) 4 if you are of legal age, check out a cocktail bar during happy hour; i love london cocktail club, which has multiple locations (i recommend the goodge st and the shaftesbury ave) 5 go to an evensong service at st. paul’s and/or westminster abbey - both have amazing choirs and it is the best way to see the interiors of the churches 6 catch a show at the globe (if you want a really authentic experience, try a £5 groundling ticket) 7 spend some time in the parks; regent’s park is my favorite running location and hyde park is great for people watching in the afternoon 8 enjoy an afternoon tea service (it’s super touristy, but if you like proper british scones and clotted cream it is a must); most hotels offer tea menus - i have had a good one at the bloomsbury hotel 9 experience fortnum and mason; i highly recommend purchasing some of their tea (wedding breakfast is my fav), or preserves and marmalades (esp the ones that are spiked like yes please put champagne in that), or their chocolates (EVERYONE TAKE NOTE: my birthday is in december and i am dying to try their new christening tea HINT HINT) 10 do all the walking you can, if you are sticking to zone one forget the tube; wandering the streets is also best for orienting yourself and you never know what you might encounter (but if you plan on needing the tube frequently i recommend buying an oyster card at the heathrow station)

i’m not sure how long you will be in the city? but i do realize i just recommended activities that could easily encompass a few weeks and aren’t necessarily the most touristy. if you are looking for the sight-seeing touristy, i advocate for self-led walking tours: you can be in complete control of where you head and it is much better than the alternatives of bus tours or things like the london eye (not worth the price btw)

please let me know how your trip goes!! i hope you can use some of this??
