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?
