Afternoon fellow Arrsers, just a few questions for those with nothing better to do ;-)
On leave from the Stinky Pond, foot loose and fancy free. Healthy bank balance and staying a short distance from London til end of the month.

Done the flight from Dubai, the daughter visit, the uncomfy time with the Ex. Met and scuttled the saucy blonde, who is busy working tonight. Just chilling for the week and wondered what wealth of talent and information out there has got to suggest for a not too expensive week, apart from shagging, just a short ride from London?

Thanks, as ever

Imperial War Museum
National Portrait Gallery (which is free)
A "Duck tour" London Duck Tour Tickets - Duck Tour Tickets - London Sightseeing Tours 2011

When using the London Underground - Stand on the right!!
When using the London Underground - have your ticket ready, don't walk up to the barriers, then spend 5 mins fumbling through you "fanny pack" for the ticket. You'll only piss off the commuters.

National Gallery, London Eye, Jack the Ripper walk, Maritime Museum, Royal Observatory etc and on the way, pop into as many local pubs as you can .... and then there's Imperial War Museum, Churchill War rooms, V&A Museum .... and more pub visits.
Also, don't forget the theatres around - some great shows are on. I think Somerset House are also starting their outdoor movies festival.
Failing that, just buy the Time Out and you can find loads of things to do in there.

Imperial War Museum definitely.
Hit the west end mate. Start in Covent Garden. Go from there.

Cheapy comedy night is always a good crack..
1-find annoying prick offering tickets for a quid normally around leicester square outside trocadero
2-Buy two
3-find a troll
4-get drunk with said troll (see location below)
5-take credit for laughs provided by someone funnier than you
6-if troll is now pretty proceed to hotel if not repeat step 4 as nessecary.


Try to find Gordons bar! Wine and oak barreled port the boll*ks, good grub and no windows...good times if she's a horror

It's between embankment and charring cross.

Went to the Imperial War Museum yesterday with the domestic COS. We arrived just after 10 o#clock intending to stay a couple of hours and move on. We left at 5 o'clock without having gone all the way round. WW2 and the side exhibits will have to wait for another day.

BTB we saw War Horse in Drury Lane - good theatre and a good play.

On the grub front I always enjoy a pint of 2 at De Hems on Gerard Street followed by a meal at Wong Kei.

Buy an all day tube ticket - make sure it's in your "fanny bag" and spend 5 minutes fumbling at every barrier - it'll really piss the commuters off. GOOD - most of them are pretty nasty dullards

You can get a day ticket that will allow you to travel on the tube/buses all day (worth the money, as the tube is now a ripoff)
Travelcards also give a discount on the boats up & down the river.

Get yourself up to the City -

Wander around aimlessly (preferably find a large group to tag onto for maximum disruption), take photographs of large buildings (Gherkin, Lloyd's etc) that you will later wonder why you bothered and never look at again, stand at traffic lights until the light is just about to turn against you and then jump lemming like in front of a taxi, act gormlessly on the tube (per Smudge's post) and generally make yourself a pain to everone who works there, despite the fact that there is not much to see.

Go for it - every other fucker seems to.
