London trip planner

Here are some Top 10 lists and example itineraries to give you a few ideas for your holiday. We’ve included a wide variety of different places, and also offered some choices within the itineraries themselves, so you can swap out any attractions that you don’t like. Plan to enter a maximum of three places each day (three places that you actually want to go inside). Four is doable if you rush, or if the final attraction stays open late.

Trip Planner

One of the best bits about going on holiday is sitting at home and planning it. That’s where our handy London trip planner comes in… 1)  Bookmark your favourite places Click the Add to planner buttons throughout the attractions, events, hotels, pubs, restaurants and train journey pages to bookmark your favourite places. Then click the View planner buttons or click the itinerary links to see your choices 2)  Personalise your planner There’s no need to sign-up to use our planner, but if you register on the forum then you can add your name, a title, and even your own notes. This will allow you to include comments next to each location 3)  Ask for some feedback Once you’ve created an itinerary a link will appear to post it on the forum. Craig can then give you feedback. He has personally visited over 200 attractions and reviewed them on his blog. He’s also written a London guidebook. Feel free to ask him whatever you want.
