    Like said above hit up the local pubs and places. I really liked London it is one of my favorite cities over here, most likely cause I could read all the signs.

    Caffrey's Beer - look for "Free House" - lots of chain pubs
    And for god's sake, get some fish & chips wrapped in paper - awesome!
    London Eye, ride the tube - "Mind The Gap", Theater District, Jack The Ripper Tour at night, Hyde Park, Harrod's, Buckingham Palace, Tower of London, Thames River Boat Tour, Parliament,
    That should be a good start! Yep, lived there 3 1/2 years! Best experience of my life!

    The London Eye Ferris wheel is pretty cool if you have the time. Gives a nice view of the city.

    Try Shepard's Pie, Bangers and Mash, Fish and Chips, Blood Pudding (if you're daring enough) and Yorkshire Pudding. Best food IMO

    I was here in June of 2000, about 3 months after it opened. By that time there was already a 1 year wait to ride it.
