Birthday Vacation in London!

Next summer, Mr. E and I are turning 30 and 25 respectively. E’s birthday is the beginning of [name_f]July[/name_f], and mine the end of [name_u]August[/name_u]. Since I’m a worrier, I want to use a Travel Agent, and start budgeting. I have a few questions for my [name_u]London[/name_u] based berries.

  1. Would [name_f]July[/name_f] or [name_u]August[/name_u] make a better vacation month. We’ll probably just wander around and do the usual site-seeing stuff.

  2. What sort of fun things would you recommend? Any small things that visitors might not know about, such as museums, bars, restaurants, etc.

  3. Are there any excursions outside of [name_u]London[/name_u] that you would recommend?

We’ll probably be there for just a week, because I earn crummy Paid Time Off, so unfortunately we won’t be able to tour all of the amazing places throughout the country. I’m hoping to hit some of the lesser known places as well as the big tourist attractions.
