Try to schedule your stonehenge tour to a weekday where you can visit the london market. Do note that change of guard is not a daily affair, do check their web for update, same goes for the market.

- Not going to the imperial war museum, british museum, natural history museum?
- Book in advance (FOC) for 360 view of london https://skygarden.london/
- Hype park is a big park, if can ride a bicycle, do rent one and trust me you will have lots of fun in doing that
- Staying in Bayswater, lancaster, queensway? From oxford street take bus 94, it stop at any bus stop along the hype park.

Thanks bro with your kind advices..

Try to schedule your stonehenge tour to a weekday where you can visit the london market. Do note that change of guard is not a daily affair, do check their web for update, same goes for the market. --- London Market is at ?? I have checked , till now dates are not confirmed for April for changing of guards, but it seems like Every Sunday should have 1, thus I planned it on a Sunday.

- Not going to the imperial war museum, british museum, natural history museum? -- Not really interest in museum though for both me and my wife, thus never plan. But might dropby to have a look if we happen to pass by.

- Book in advance (FOC) for 360 view of london https://skygarden.london/ --- FOC ? Nice ! Will take note of that. thanks.

- Hype park is a big park, if can ride a bicycle, do rent one and trust me you will have lots of fun in doing that -- Noted with thanks. Will definitely do that if able to find the rentals.

- Staying in Bayswater, lancaster, queensway? From oxford street take bus 94, it stop at any bus stop along the hype park.
--- Staying at Lancaster , my hotel name: Park Grand London Lancaster Gate

Market as in Camden, borough and brick lane market. Their museum is one of a kind, not to be missed especially the natural history and british museum (youtube for more info), nearby the sky garden will be the st paul cathedral where prince william got married and in front of the cathedral is the millennium bridge.

Most of the sightseeing place are nearby to each other, I ever try from tower bridge to big ben.

For chinese food wise, I recommend Four Season too on top of Gold Mine, their roast duck i feel that is much nicer than gold mine but do take note their a bowl of white rice cost alot, if i remember is about 2pound

What you and your wife are more interested in where we can provide you with more infos?

Many thanks bro for your kind advice. As this is my first time me and my wife heading to London and is quite a short stay, thus I am trying to plan as much as possible.

We are more to sightseeing, thus I try to plan to cover as much as possible within this few days. Luckily both of us are walkers, so to walk and walk shouldnt be a problem.

Will try to cover Camden and Borough Market if time permits , Brick Lane is at spitalfied ?

I have added Skygarden to my Day 2 Itinerary tgt with St Paul, really thanks for your intro of Sky Garden. haha

I think 5D4N for london is quite long. maybe u can consider taking road trip. I went to Cotswolds. A very beautiful small town. I also went to oxford for sightseeing.

If the stonehenge, windsor and bath tour is the same tour that I've been on, you will most probably arrive back in london night time. You can head over to old london side and join some jack the ripper tour if you like.

The tour of bath is too short to give the town justice as I went to bath by train the day before my tour and enjoyed the city! Went had the time to head to jane asuten museum which is amazing if you are a fan.

Btw.. any recommendations on how to use the 2-4-1 offers ?
Can I buy like (2way queenstown road to vauxhall) at Paddington station so that I can make use of the 2-4-1 offers ? Thanks

Cos after some calculation, I dont think is worth it for me to buy London Pass

To be true windsor castle is abit overrated, is much the same as any london castle, nothing much to see. If time is a concern, you might want to consider taking train to salisbury and from there take the stonehenge bus to stonehenge.

Salisbury is a nice country style small town, less crowded compare to windsor and bath
