"Hi Raine, You seem to have a nice grip on what to see and do but I would suggest a few tweeks to get the most of food and sightseeing, among the locals. I assume you are okay with walking?

"Katya, I love London! Great choice. In fact, we love all of the UK -- there is a ton to see outside London also. We lived in the UK for two years. So, the most important thing to remember is - there are two season's in England: Winter (rain) and July. You have to go prepared that it could rain a lot and then be pleasantly surprised when you have sunny days. Rain in England is all part of the experience. My favorite spring month in the UK is April. There is typically less rainfall, the temperature is on the rise, and things are in bloom more than normal. They observe good friday/Easter - which is 18-21 April next year. There are two bank holidays in May on the 5th and 26th, so you will want to miss those weekends if you want to avoid crowds, or plan around those weekends if you want to be part of what might be happening -- for example, Covent Garden Market will have a lot going on those weekends and can be very interesting, but at the same time theatre tickets will be hard to get. You may also want to avoid the heavy tourist crowds of the summer months: J-J-A. There are some great sites that will show you weather data in the UK - like !"  See More
