i'd be lying if i said that i'm not completely obsessed with planning our october trip to england and scotland. it will be here before we know it, and there is just so much to see and do across the pond and not enough hours in a day! i am having trouble narrowing it down!

a few notes about our trip:
we are spending 4 nights in london. three nights at the sheraton park tower on knightsbridge and one night at the park plaza westminster bridge hotel. we lucked out with two fabulous locations!

so far, we have booked afternoon tea at claridge's and sunday lunch at hawksmoor. i am going to apply for tickets for the ceremony of the keys at the tower of london - has anyone done that?

after london, we are making our way to edinburgh, where we'll be staying at the grand hotel & spa for four nights.

thankfully, my friend alyssa has spent some time around the UK and compiled 4 pages(!!) of recommendations for us. i am referring to her notes religiously as i'm planning... but i wanted to check if anyone else had any travel tips/UK recommendations for us.

what should we see and do and eat and buy!?! 
also, what should i wear in october in london and edinburgh? 

your comments or emails would be much appreciated!

ps. wouldn't fun throw pillows make perfect souvenirs?

I really enjoyed just strolling through Notting Hill, the buildings and architecture there are beautiful, and Portobello Road has little outdoor markets which are fun to browse. Also would recommend Westminster Abbey, and picnic or bike ride through Hyde Park.
