THORPE PARK, IT IS AMAZING IF YOU LIKE RIDES
MADDAME TUSSAUDS
THE LONDON EYE
THE SCIENCE MUSEUM/ NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM(practically next to eachother!)
THE WARNER BRO'S STUDIO (if you like harry potter!)
THE LONDON DUNGEONS
BUCKINGHAM PALACE
WESTFIELD OR OXFORD STREET FOR SHOPPING!
TATE MODERN (if you like art)
THE GLOBE THEATRE
THE TOWER OF LONDON
BIG BEN
ALSO LONDON OFFERS SOME GREAT WEST END SHOWS, YOU COULD GO AND WATCH ONE OF THEM IF YOU LIKE SHOWS:)

CHESSINGTON WORLD OF ADVENTURES(slightly further)
IF YOU CAN, GO TO BRIGHTON PIER OR SOMEWHERE, WHICH IS SOUTH OF LONDON, IT HAS A LOVELY PIER&BEACH.

HOPE THIS HELPS!

    I think seeing a stage production is essential. I saw The Woman in Black last week which was great. A back row stall seat is only £18 (US$29). It is in a small theatre, so even the back row has a good view. But there is Wicked, The Lion King and a host more.

    Of course all the major sights. Big Ben, The Tower of London, Buckingham Palace etc.

    Churchill's War Rooms is a fascinating visit £16.50 (http://www.iwm.org.uk/visits/churchill-w...

    And there is a great exhibition running until late June on the history of the Brain. They even have a slice of Einstein's brain there. Macabre but interesting.

    and you can buy an excellent value for money Britrail Pass before arrival www.britrail.com
    I would suggest visiting:-
    Bath www.visitbath.co.uk
    Brighton www.visitbrighton.co.uk
    York
    Ludlow www.ludlow.org.uk
    www.visitsouthshropshire.co.uk
    The Forest of Dean and the Wye Valley www.visitforestofdean.co.uk

    What are you into?
    Go to the theatre I suggest to see a show.
    I would definitely plan for a day outside of London and maybe head down to Cornwall or somewhere and spend a day or book a B&B and spend a night. It's beautiful down there and if its warm go to the beach in Cornwall as they are beautiful!
    London Eye
    Greenwich Park/Hyde Park
    Brick Lane or Camden
    Westfields Stratford for some shopping if its cold out or Oxford Street if its okay
    Check out the museums and galleries if your into that
    Go on an open top bus tour and learn some history
    London Dungeons or London Bridge Experience
    The Jack the Ripper Tour
    Thames Boat Toar

    Your spoilt for choice in London and I can't name or think of so many things that are possible to do!!

    Check out http://www.timeout.com/london/ gives you a great selection of any events or any must sees in London.

    go and see a show in the West End...there are loads of theatres in a small area and then afterwards - go in to Covent Garden & watch the street entertainers & musicians...everything is open very late - we tend to see a Matinee (afternoon) show and then go to Covent Garden for a drink and some dinner....it's really entertaining.

    there are loads of shops, pubs, restaurants as well as the entertainment in the streets...you'll love it!
