"Stephanie, Given that you've never been to London before, here are my suggestions. Additionally, you're coming from the East Coast, so you'll probably be arriving in London in mid-to-early morning -- if you can manage to push through that first day without succumbing to jet lag, you'll feel great the rest of your trip. As an aside, this list is mostly cultivated from my own loves in London -- it's by no means definitive nor necessarily the most popular. Just places I love! :) Day 1 (Day of Arrival) Grab breakfast at Regency Cafe, a classic place for English Breakfast Wander around near Buckingham Palace, cross Westminster Bridge, and enjoy a coffee (and unique view) from 2 Love Tea & Coffee House (!"  See More

"Hi, Donna, Not sure what your interests are, but I just happened to be helping a friend who was going there with a group of many different ages and interests so see if any of these appeal to you! For mainstream attractions: Tower Of London don’t let the high admission fee discourage you from coming here. It’s an absolutely incredible experience that will give you a sense of history like almost no other place in London. If you can, send away for tickets to see the Ceremony of the Keys—it’s incredible. It’s a nighttime ceremony that’s been going on for 700 years and it’s not easy to get to see (the tickets go months in advance but try it anyway). Here’s the link to apply for tickets:>"  See More

"But, walk along the Thames, visit The British Museum, Science Museum, Natural History Museum, Museum of London Docklands, visit Greenwich (picnic near the observatory for a great view over the city) and Camden Town, check out 'the scoop at more London', often free films and plays in the summer there (it's outdoors)."  See More

"The British Museum is another must, and you'll need a full day."  See More

"For example, I've found good non-touristy pubs right across the street from The British Museum London pubs are also going to have some interesting English food, so you may want to spend some time understanding what Brits like to eat."  See More

"As Colleen and Nathanel have mentioned, most all of the best museums are free - National Gallery, The British Museum, etc."  See More

"The British Museum & others are free to enter."  See More

"Oh, there are so many great ones in London!!! I'm envious that you get to see them for the first time!!! The history here is just insane and the museums are beyond incredible. Have a blast and try to check out as many of these as you can!!! Tower Of London –don’t let the high admission fee discourage you from coming here. It’s an absolutely incredible experience that will give you a sense of history like almost no other place in London. If you can, send away for tickets to see the Ceremony of the Keys.
