    Hello, you might know that I'm leaving for London [vacation] on August 2nd. Now, we all know that there are many things to see, do and eat in London [and Paris for 1 day]. So I was wondering if people who live in London or England could suggest some things for us to do in London. We already have:

    London:

    -Big Ben
    -London Eye
    -Tower of London
    -London Bridge
    -Windsor Castle
    -Theatre (need suggestions)
    -Museums (need suggestions)

    Paris

    -Eiffel Tower
    -The Louvre
    -Museums (need suggestions)

    Other information that you might want to know about my trip to London:

    -We're staying in a hotel in Kensington
    -I don't know if the hotel has an internet connection (I hope it does)
    -Returning on August 12th

    Thanks in advance. :thumbsup:

    Have a nice trip man. I will also be leaving for Swiss tomorrow, so I guess we are both on the same holiday train. :lol:
    Anyway, have a nice time.

    For museums, I'd recommend either the Natural History, Science and Imperial War museums. They're all worth a visit.

    If your into football (soccer *sigh*) then you could try and get to one of the London teams games (depending on how long your staying), preferably Arsenal ;)

    Oh, I really wouldn't go to London, I think there's much more stuff in Liverpool, and it's a lot cheaper. I'm afraid you'll have to get used to extorsion and people everywhere.

    So, anyway, when I went to London I really didn't like it, the tube was full of people and it took us four times to get on a train, because there are floods of old people who come all the time, and you're obliged to let them in first, it's a cruel cycle of life.

    So, yeah, go to the Tate Modern, the art gallery. I've got the impression that it's really good, someone told me there were really tall slides there for an exhibition, but that would probably be gone by now. But, then again, with art you have to be prepared for being freaked out.

    Mentioning football, all the good teams are northerners, don't listen to Nicko :p

    Will you just be staying in London or renting a car or something? Because there's a lot more to see outside of London.

    - Westminster Abbey

    - The British Museum

    - Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

    - Windsor Castle

    - London Eye

    - Madame Tussauds

    Ermmmm.. as for shows 'We Will Rock You' is meant to be awesome, it's coming to my local city so I'm going to be seeing it ^_^

    Also The Lion King and Marry Poppins are popular =]

    Edit: Oh yeah, and you HAVE to do an open bus tour of London! When I went there with my sister a couple of years back we didn't have much time there so we did that, and I'm SOOO glad I did!

    Thanks for all the suggestions guys. Well, I'm leaving today at 7:00, so if my hotel doesn't have an internet connection, it's goodbye until August 12th. However, if my hotel does have an internet connection, then I'll be on only at night. This could be goodbye, it could not be goodbye, either way, see you later.

    Stay away from the emirits stadium.

    The science museum is great, check it out definatly.

    It kind of saddens me that no one visists the north of England.
     
  17. whats wrong with northern england? i know nothing about the bad areas or anything like that. if i was to travel internationally, id want to go to every aspect of the country, good or bad :)

    the US however cant be said the same....well...for obvious reasons

    To be fair though, can you actually name anything up north that would attract tourists? Fair enough Liverpool and *cough* Manchester *cough* are OK but what else apart from that? The only thing that would attract you to my area (near Sheffield) is if your looking for a fight with the swarms of rabid, inbred morons that roam the streets.

    Ah, Nicko, my favourite newbie who challenges what I say. Well, I've always lived in Liverpool and would much prefer living in cities, so I would only advise you really to go to Liverpool and Manchester.

    After all, we were totally set out to destroy the massive ego of Oxford:

    [​IMG]

    Well maybe all the things in Liverpool and Manchester can make up for... whatever else is in the north of England. Wherever I've went in England, usually the countryside, I've wanted to come back because I hated it.

    But my dear Nicko, what about lovely Newcastle? :p
