      In London for a week at the summer - looking for ideas on where else to visit

      by sparkieplug24 Online Now Jun 4, 2014 at 9:02 AM

      We will be in london for a week end of July beginning of August we will be here for one late afternoon and evening (Sunday) and then 6 full days. I have been to London a number of times but tend to go to the same places every time as you will see from my travel pages. However my travel compaion has never been to London except for travelling through. We plan to do the london eye (in the evening) london dungeons, Madam tussauds, a Thames river cruise, London bridge experience, tower bridge, tower of london, churchill war rooms and monument. We also are going to a show one evening and possibly the Jack the ripper London walk and probably the zoo.

      I am looking for some ideas on other places that we could visit Ive already did St Pauls in the past more than once so don't want to do this again. Travelling companion has learning disabilities and has short attention span when doing things he dont like or hes not interested in so dont really want to be do loads of historic buildings, or museums as he will get bored of this quickly but if its something that interests him he could spend hours here like transport museum for example (not happening). although I think he may like the new exhibit in the IWM could we go and see this without touring the whole museum?? Im sure I have read somewhere you can but curious to see if we can as sites not giving out much info at the moment as its just closed for the refurb until July (typical lol). I have been looking at various sites including this one but to be honest Ive been overwelhemed at what Ive found.

      Travelling companion likes football, bowling, boats, swimming, animals (but not doing sealife I went last year and think he would not like it), action type films (most films actually), music, musicals, comedy, he loved Edinburgh dungeons and visits here frequently. He also likes things that are visually interactive as reading is a problem and he loves walking. He also likes shopping.

      Ive purchased show tickets and will be purchasing combi tickets in next few days for the london eye, dungeons and madam tussuads. Im looking really at doing the rest of it as cheaply as possible and looking into both 2 for 1, london passes and places that are free. We will have oyster cards with 7 day zone 1-3 travelcards on them.

      Ive got a few ideas of other places to visit was wondering what people thought of these. Royal Mews, Changing of the guard, HMS Belfast.

      Also was looking at the arsenal/chelsea stadium tours and was wondering if anyone thought one was better than the other and if so which one. Also can anyone recommened nice restaurants in covent garden, soho, china town that arent too expensive thinking around £30 - £40 for a meal and drinks (soft drinks) for two. Ive been looking and their are loads to chose from so any personal recommendations.

      sorry for the long waffeling post and thanks in advance for help

      We are getting married in London in September, and there will be 12 if our guests staying an extra night (Sunday 28th), and I was looking for something unusual / exclusive for us to do as a group. I thought I had the idea sorted, as an exclusive evening tour of buckingham palace, with champagne afterwards, but their last tour for september is 27th (which doesn't suit as its the day of the wedding).
      I want it to be something that we can do as a private group that wouldnt be something you could normally do without pre-planning.
      Any ideas?
