Juditzu has indicated that this thread is about England

I would like some suggestions for activities to do early in the morning. Will be arriving around 7am on a Thursday and I am not sure what there is to do so early. Thanks in advance for any help!

If you arrive by flight, it will take you some time to get into London anyhow, so by that time it shouldn't be a problem finding stuff to do.

If you mean that you'll be in London at about 7, go to one of the markets, have a look around, then go have a real English breakfast. We did that last year, because our flight was terribly delayed, there was a snowstorm, the ticket machine at Stansted "swallowed" my credit card so we had to wait for my bank to open..... all in all terrible, but that trip to the market and the hearty breakfast and a pint did the trick ;)

That sounds like a good idea, thanks for the advice. :)

Sit in a decent coffee shop/pub depending on your preference/constitution and watch all the maniacally stressed commuters batter each other about with briefcases and laugh at their ridiculous urgency! it always entertains me when im hanging around in london waiting for friends. I've never understood why they have to run donw escalators elbowing you out of the way when you all end up on the same tube (every 2 mins) anyway?!
