Myself and my wife are planning to visit London for first time during Jun-Jul, 2017 for 13 days. We have already booked a double bed ensuite room at International Students Hostel, Great Portland Street. We intend to visit all the major attractions of London and also nearby attractions of London during our stay.
We intend to buy 2 Standard Oyster cards (Pay as you go) at Heathorw Airport on the date of arrival. Then, we intend to buy 7 days paper travel card from King Cross Railway station to avail 1-for-2 offer for London attractions. On 8th and 9th day, we intend to travel to nearby locations by day tours from Victoria Coach Station through travel agencies. Last 2-3 days will be used for shopping and any other left out attraction.
Please comment on the above strategy for saving the cost. Please also suggest itinerary and any location which we should include in above visit.
We are Vegetarian. Your suggestion for vegetarian food on London will be appreciated.
