We are going on our honeymoon Sunday to Paris for 10 days.
We were also planning on taking a day trip to London for one day only – not overnight. Is this worth it? I would love to shop and see some of the basic London sights and have lunch. I guess our only real issue is we are leaving in less than a week and as of now the EuroStar tickets are still relatively cheap. However, I know they go up fast the closer to the date you get. Darling Husband was hoping to just go the same day and buy the tickets, but based on the prices I’ve seen for a few days before, that’s not worth it at all. I guess the issue is, that we are pretty heavy sleepers and don’t generally get up before 10am on most non-work days and even have trouble getting up on work days. So we are afraid that we would buy the tickets and just flat out miss our train.
Also, if we do London, is it worth it to do any tours, or would that feel like stretching the day too thin? I’ve looked into Tower of London tours and Buckingham Palace tours and they seem like they would start to eat up a lot of time when you only have 12 hours max to spend (staying overnight is not an option since our Paris hotel is already booked.
