I posted a first attempt at an itinerary for our 10 night August trip a few weeks. I have made some revisions based on the feedback I got so I want to post it again. I tried to alternate sightseeing days in London with day trips outside the city. We are both lifelong Beatles fans and enjoy the theater and unique dining experiences (I still have a lot of research to do on restaurants). We also don't like having every second scheduled out and like to have some flexibility.
I also wanted to ask some advise on hotel location (budget approx £130/night) and what would be the best way to pay for travel (Oyster, Travel Card, Rail) based on this itinerary. Thanks in advance for your help.
