Hello Fellow Travel geeks,

I am planning to travel to London next year around April end and thinking of a solo but happy to meet any travelers who might be there around the same time. I love exploring all the main attractions, art galleries and night life.

Also, please recommend what could be the best itinerary for 4 nights there?

Cheers

I would recommend getting an Oyster Card . . http://www.visitlondon.com/traveller-information/getting-around-london/oyster-faqs/which-card-to-buy#y3BomtL4WevQcBzA.97

Super convenient for getting around & will probably save you money. London is a very walkable city but it is BIG .. you will need to take a bus or tube train at some point.

That site also has things to do that includes Art Galleries.

London has so much to see & do it is easy to make up your own itinerary. Maybe use Google Maps to center a day out on the National Gallery at Trafalgar Square & search nearby for art galleries
If you face the gallery, just around the corner to the right is the National Portrait Gallery which might be worth a short visit.

Walk down-hill & across Trafalgar Square, through Admiralty Arch & along the Mall .. pop into St James park on your left & feed the ducks .. on to Buckingham Palace .. say hi to the Queen. Take a right through Green park & pick any other gallery on the map & walk or hop a bus to it

Another day you could do a similar thing & center your day on The Tate Modern on Bankside .. walk along the river and poke your nose into the Globe Theater . . you are a bit late to see Shakespeare but this is a working replica of his theater .. open air, his actors did not have to contend with the sound of passing Jets as they do now.

Another day, take a boat on the Thames to Hampton Court Palace or Kew gardens.

That's three days .. day four you will need to nap.

For night life, you can google it. Then there will be some nice and popular places where you can have fun.
You said you like Art gallery and so on, then i strongly recommend going to the Great Britain Museum. you might have heard this since it is too popular. But it should be popular place. This museum deserves the worth of visiting.

I suspect bfeder is referring to the British Museum. Here is their web site if you want to check it. British Museum web site
