Huge awesome museum locatedc on the Thames that houses a spectacular selection of Art. I was lucky enough to go during the Dali exhibition a few year back...it was amazing. Of Note...It's actually has 3 other locations.
If you're a history buff, especially of WW1 and WW2 then you absolutely must check out this museum. It's huge with tanks and fighter aircraft in it and some cool stuff on spy craft as well. The guns from a battleship make fir some great pics as well....more
This is one of the better aquariums I've been to. AThe shark tank in particular was very impressive and cool. When I showed people the pics they thought I went scuba diving...they could'nt believe they were from London not Carribean waters......more
Westminster Abbey is another must for history buffs. I almost didn't go till a friend talked me into it..but was blown away by its history. Though I usually don't like going on tours....you will do yourself a dis-service not going on one. The depth and breath of the tour guides knowledge...more

Great location in between Hyde Park, Green Park, Buckingham Palace and Piccadilly Circus. Rooms are small but nice. Right across the street from a slew of restaurants and pubs. Plus don't forget to stop by the Geo F Trumper on Curzon for the best old school British Grooming products...more
Great neighborhood that is loaded with tons of very good restaurants and bars. It's kind of a mix of NY's Soho and West village from what I remember. Great for couples, families and friends for a day about or a night out.
The River Thames is great to walk along and take pictures of all the amazing sites of old and new buildings that run up and down it. Just note that the big bridge is Tower Bridge...London Bridge is actually very small
Leicester Square is pretty much London's Times Square thought its not nearly as loud or garish. Plenty of shopping in the area...if you don't mind the exchange rate, shows, restaurants and more bars then pubs here
