Guys, I’m going to my 1st time LONDON!
Happy & excited, will stay there at least 2 weeks, but probably a month +.
Sure I’ll see all the “main” sights.
I know that there r many Londoners and English ppl on this site, as well travelers, student, etc – everyone who wants to share is welcome! I wait to hear about Your Personal London Favorites – could be a corner/ graffiti/ pub/ snack-bar/ museum/ building/ person/ just everything!. no limitations.
Thanks for advance,
Musems and Galleries:
1 - British Museum - fantastic collection of stuff nicked from antiquity

2 - Richmond Park - a nice wild park, love the deer
3 - Greenwich Park - with the observatory in the middle
1 - Gordon Ramsay at Claridges - get the £30 lunch offer. The food is sublime.

oh, guys, thanks to everybody!
i sure will taste London as much as i could get!
more advices are welcome!
you should go to the forum in Kentish, it's a famous place for gigs.
and kentish is a good district
I also enjoyed my visit to Tate Modern, it was very interesting. The National Gallery is worth a trip too, if you like art. It's just at Trafalgar Square. Covent Garden market has a nice array of stuff too, if you're into shopping.
Hello! Abbey Road!
Plus a walk along the Thames--you'll see everything from there.
