Touring London on a shoestring budget..

This coming week is going to be a crazy week for me 'cause two of my friends back home are visiting me in London. So it's up to me to plan their itinery. Having been told that they're going to bring only 600 quid for a ten day stay (gulp!), I would have to work round their not so generous budget. Considering that a 3 day stay in Scotland is included, it seems that we have to rely on parks and museums (those free ones) and of course the famed 2 hrs London Walks to fill up the days.

Below is the tentative plan.

Mon
In-Pro

Tues
Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Tate Modern, London Eye, Westminster, Westminster Abbey

Wed
Buckingham Palace, Camden market, Primose Hill, London Walk 1

Thurs
Borough's Market, Trafalgar Square, British Museum, National Gallery, Portrait Gallery

Fri
Leceister Square, Piccadilly Circus, Covent Garden, Plays

Sat-Mon
Scotland

Tues
Greenwich, London Walk 2

Wed
Oxford Street, Hyde Park, Harrods, Natural History Museum

Thurs
Out-pro

That and the sandwiches lunches. Who says London cannot be affordable? I am now busy congratulating myself.

Thanks! Getting abit tired of patting myself on the back. :)

@kyh
Sure thing! You can count on me for that. But with Eurostar, you can really get much more with a little boost in your budget. Might as well spend a bit more since you've come halfway round the globe. :)
