So, i'm coming at the start of march, what should i not miss and go see?
Fireworkz saidHmm if you want a London that mixes the new not just the old here is my recommendation. It really depends on what you like.
-Tower of London
- Explore Trafalgar square, whitehall and green park
- Take a boat on the Thames. The clipper service which is for commuters is the most cost effective it will take you to most of the sites
- British Museum
- Natural History Museum
- Oxford st, Regent st
- Covent garden
- Tate Modern
- Tate Britain
- Royal Society of Arts - check to see what they have
Drinks and Food
Most of the fun stuff is in East London these days. West London is for old school bankers and posh people
- Covent Garden and Soho are great to hangout for drinks and restaurants
- The Shard at London Bridge- tallest building in Europe with great restaurants, bars and amazing views
- Hangout in Shoreditch - where all the hipsters, artists, tech entrepreneurs and tourists hangout
- go to brick lane on a weekend for the markets
- In the evening there are many food and drink places to visit
- head to soho
- Drinks at the Yard or Circa,
- Rupert street,
- XXL is a good club - is supposed to be a bear club but I think only 30% of the people are actually bears. It has 2 rooms. 1 is R&B and pop the other is house music
- Check QXmagazine for other clubs
Ex_Mil8 saidSome excellent advice above. If I were to recommend just one thing, it would be to walk the Thames Path from Albert Bridge to Tower Bridge (about 6 miles). You can also do the return walk along the South Bank.
The last time I was in London I walked the Thames Path from Westminster Bridge to Greenwich (did the Greenwich tour) and then walked through the Greenwich Foot Tunnel and all the way back via the Thames Path North. It's quite a hike.
Sounds like a good one to me. It's pretty flat, right?
BTW, I've always been a steam engine buff. Where are the old large piston pumping engines located in England? Near Bristol? In addition to a week in London, I'm planning on driving thru S. England, from Land's End to Margate, and about as far north as the Bristol-Oxford-Cambridge-Kings Lynn line. And, as you might imagine, I'm looking forward to seeing Chartwell and ... Finchley. "Can you direct me to the latter?"

I agree with you those extremists should be kick out of the country. Why do you hijacked everyone threads into anti-Muslim crap?
