What To Do In London Over A Weekend
I'll probably stay over a few days in London to rest up(!) after the Libya trip, as I have a flight change at Heathrow. I don't know London all THAT well, only been there twice.
Hovever, I've already seen the churches, art galleries and museums, so please send in some innovative suggestions:
- British Museum
- Tower of London
- The Tate
- St Pauls
- Some 2nd Hand market or other starting with a C, up North.
- Richmond Park
- Hammersmith Hospital(? It was a work trip last time.)
- 84CharingCross Rd (not so many 2nd hand bookshops left really)
Any famous cemeteries I should visit
OTHER MONKEYS SAID
Harrods? I love the food basement there. Be careful of pickpockets.
I know this is a bold presumptuous request, but could you please buy me a Lion bar? In London, I mean. Or a Twix. Incidentally you are in the Twix capital of the world. Twix tastes nicer in the United Kingdom than it does anywhere else on this planet.
Haven't we had this conversation?
Harrods food basement sounds very ME!
I wonder if they sell vegemite?
There's a cemetery in north London with the grave site of Karl Marx. Overgrown with weeds, and groundkeeper snarls at you "wadda ya wanna see this fer?.
Yeah Camden Market is not bad. Try also Portobello or Brick Lane if you have time?
- Tate Modern, not the Tate - much more dramatic, and cool. Impress your friends with your beatnik modern art appreciation!
- National Portrait Gallery. Less well known than the other big galleries, but very very good.
- Theatre in the Park for an evening performance of a Shakespeare comedy - check their website for their summer productions. Magical with a glass or 2 of mulled wine.
- London Eye. Naff but surprisingly good
- Houses of Parliament if you do Westminster. The hoe of democracy!
- Primrose Hill - great views. Don't go to the public loos unless you are into cottaging.
- London Zoo.
So much to do in London! Man I miss it at times...
47 Cromer Rd, Tooting
Do I like Tooting? I've never tooted.
the borough market is a must without the Harrod's prices. (An english vic market ).
