Dear TALF - first of all, many thanks for so generously sharing all your experience and knowledge. I have been reading your posts (somewhat feverishly) since January and have learned a great deal. I am wondering how you feel about the necessity of having a daily pre-planned itinerary to have a successful visit to London? Our inclination, since we are having trouble gauging how much time each destination deserves, is to just take things day by day. We have a solid idea of the things we want to do in our 8 days but at this point, no particular schedule. Any insights would be appreciated.
