Something to do in London tomorrow.
from my limited time (one day..) there, if you are near the south bank:
Burough marketPosted 9 years ago
Tate modern (really surprised with this place, could spend a week there!!)
The big gallery place up the river from the tate modern.
some nice pubs
the eye if it’s a nice day and the queues are short.
Ask rudeboy he seems like a london encyclopedia.
That is not entirely untrue, I’ll be honest.
Pends what you like; Art, music, museums, galleries, food, beer, markets, walking about, fighting, boats, trains, history, shopping, parks, running up and down steps, animals, engineering, other stuff.
As a quick Rude Guide to a Day Out in That London’s Famous London, I’d say, atm…
And then, you’ve got all the rest of the Nat Hist museum to look round, the Science Museum next door, the V+A across the road, Knightsbridge for posh shopping, Hyde Park, some good little eateries, and pubs, too.
Being that it’s winter, I’d say that’s a pretty good way to spend the day. Allows you to chill out and relax. You could just sit on a bench, in one of the museums, and people watch, if you want a rest. And you’ll have your mind fed with lots of good, nutritious visual stuff.
Head down to the River later (maybe a boat ride?), London Eye if you can be arsed queuing, but plenty of bars, cafes, restaurants etc. And it all looks pretty, lit up at night.
Enjoy!Posted 9 years agodjgloverMember
2 wildlife photographer exhibition
Go up st Pauls for the 2nd best view of the city
Go up to Primrose Hill for the best.
Go to the market porter for some real ales, then Borough market
The museum in Docklands to look at the jack the ripper / slavery exhibition
London transport museum is brilliant, geeky and full of kids, but I loved it.
Hormiman museum is next on my list, supposed to be Londons best kept secret in terms of museumsPosted 9 years ago
Well, for me, it would be a selection from the following;Posted 9 years ago
Tate Britain (Not Modern, although the building at Modern is superb, I just prefer to see some Stubbs, Turner and the like)
Lunch at Inn The Park in St James’s Park (British food, cooked in season and well priced)
British Museum (Byzantium, as mentioned above, is superb, as is the musem as a whole)
Dinner at Rules, Covent Garden. Everyone should eat there at least once in their lives!tomalsopMember
Gah! After all that!
Djglover Has some good ideas there. The Horniman is a little out of the way, mind. But I spose you could combine a trip there, with a visit to Greenwich, with the Royal Observatory, the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich Market and the Park. Some nice places to eat, and you’ve got the Greenwich union, for some proper nice beer.Then, a boat ride back into central London; time it right, and you may get a spectacular London Sunset.
IMO, the biggest disappointment is the Museum of London, which just does not do the Greatest City on Earth justice. OK if you’re mooching about near St. Pauls, though, and want to look at stuff like the bits of old Roman Wall, and Postman’s Park.
Let’s face it, you can’t really go wrong, can you??!Posted 9 years ago
You know, the more I think about it, and look at the other suggestions, the more difficult it becomes, to suggest a good single day out! There’s just too much!
I’ve lived here all me life, and still only feel like I’ve seen a little bit.
But I’d definitely recommend something visual, something historical, some nice grub, and seeing the River. Got to see the River; it’s what threads it all together.Posted 9 years ago

Yeah my bad, but when I go London I do quite like just wandering around all over the place, kinda like getting lost on purpose, as i dig the whole sprawling nature of the place. Unfortunately when it is raining like it is the whole experience is dampened. Weather looks better towards the end of the week/early next week so will more than likely take everyone’s advice then.Posted 9 years ago
It’s just a simple, friendly, unpretentious little place. I discovered it on a pootle one day, needing refreshment. Sort of place where I can just tell the people to sort out ‘whatever you recommend’, and they bring me a nice little selection. Always fresh and tasty, and never more than £5-6, with a large coffee.
London does the grand, the impressive, the spectacular, but people forget, that it also does the small, quiet and unobtrusive little hidden treasures, too.Posted 9 years ago
