Continuing from Part 1 of my recommended itinerary for London, here’s what you should plan on doing for the second half of your trip.
While London is a huge city whose sheer number of sites and activities require multiple visits, you can get a lot of the major sightseeing done in a short time if you plan accordingly. In 2012, my family and I took advantage of a cheap round trip flight deal to London Gatwick Airport, so we flew there for six full days before returning home to Canada on the seventh day. If you’re the type of person who wants to see as many things as you can in the shortest time possible, and don’t mind a “go go go!” schedule, then follow this itinerary that I created for my family’s trip.
A lot of places have their “one thing,” the must-do for tourists even if they’re only there for a short amount of time.
I won’t lie, I didn’t know about the existence of Bruges until the release of the 2008 black comedy film, In Bruges, starring Colin Farrell. While the film’s dialogue contains a lot of demeaning words about Bruges, it is actually a delightful Belgian town to spend a few days in.
