Some more questions to ask you. I'll be in London from May 1st to 5th, which is a Friday (arrive at 16h), a Saturday, a Sunday and a holiday Monday (may 4th). On Tuesday I'll leave. I was wondering, which are the best days to do what. We're two female friends on our late twenties, so tell me also if you think something doens't fit our profile. ; )

I was thinking.
- Friday - arrive and walk around covent garden and Soho. It'll be basically nightime cause I don't believe I'll be able to arrive much before 19h.
- Saturday - Morning: Parliement, buckigham palace, trafalgar square... Afternoon: some shopping on Oxford Street. Where can we go on saturday night?
- Sunday - Camden Town in the morning. Hydepark/knightsbridge in the afternoon. Anything more interesting (fun) to do on a Sunday? I heard about Brick Lane Market and UpMarket also. Are these better than Camden Market? What about Sunday nights?
- Monday. I was thinking walking on the southbank. Are things going to be open (stores, restaurants, cafes) on a holiday? Also go to St. Paul's Church and Tower of London. Should I do the Saturday on Monday and this day on Saturday?

Am I missing something unmissable?

Many, many thanks.

I have been to London a few times. One of the things you may enjoy on Saturday is the Portobello Rd Market over in Notting Hill area. Saturday is a big day, and there are all kinds of bargins to be found. Last time, my wife found a cardigan wool sweater for about 20 pounds. There are alot of antiques, and just very interesting folks.

In Hyde Park on Sunday, you will have Speakers Corner going, and that is always fun for a laugh or two, and some interesting "discussions."

Hope you have great trip.
