I like to think I'm pretty thorough when I plan a trip, but just incase I'm missing something, can anyone add anything good to this list of things were already doing/seeing?
Houses of Parliament
Fatboy's Diner (as seen in Sliding Doors...sad movie trivia)
I have deliberately avoided the tower of London and the crown jewels 'cos their boring.
sit on the London Underground with a large backpack at 5:30pm. it's an interesting experiment.
or in reality, go to Camden Market, on a Saturday. Packed!
also try and find a pub near camden called "dublin castle". it's a nice wee place and madness' apparent local/first show place.
Camden Market is awesome, would definately recommend it!
Southbank - Tate Modern etc.
The new Saatachi Gallery in Chelsea
Places to go at night -
Shunt Lounge [url]http://www.shunt.co.uk/[/url]
Notting Hill Art Club / Death Disco [url]http://www.nottinghillartsclub.com/[/url]
East end / Brick Lane is also worth a visit.
The national gallery,
the Imperial War Museum,
Shakespere's Globe theatre,
the British Library,
if you have time go to Greenwich do,
also try taking in a show in the westend.
Or try and see an opera in Covent Garden. The productions are usually breath taking. Well, almost...
Spitalfields Market is pretty cool as well. Some nice eateries there.
Is that the London Dungeon thing were you go in and there's actors and stuff talking about all the murderers and sordid things of London? If so I recommend that you don't go there, it's ridiculously overpriced and ridiculously disappointing. Everything else sounds great.
I also love Tokyo Diner near Leicester Square for the best Chicken Katsu Don in the world. Other than that, I think everyone else has got most of the great places covered. Apart from the Science Museum and National History museum. Free and really pretty amazing.

Dunno, we went to the Amsterdam Dungeon (same thing) and it was pretty good. The way the actors pick on people in the group and stuff, and get squirted with blood (water)... And the wee roller coaster at the end. Not bad for the money at all I thought.
The London one I'm sure is much the same, only with London based horror stories, and the 'Extremis: Drop Ride to Hell' at the end. Quite looking forward to that part of the trip actually.
try the "jack the ripper tour" always good to see people try to make ye shit yer munks.
