1. Get out of Waterloo station via the main exit down the steps (Eurostar side, not the Shell exit). Go through the underpass to exit on Stamford Street (runs parallel with Embankment, heading east). Half way along is the Stamford Arms, order a Ploughmans with Stilton.2. Go to Chinatown, enter Harbour City resturant. Bring a chinese friend. Order some nice dishes.3. Bank of England museum, Imperial War museum at Lambeth (2 stops from Waterloo via tub), HMS Belfast.4. Visit the church in Trafalgar Square , where 60-70,000 people were buried in 200 sq feet during mid 1800s, prior to the Burial Acts. Yes those numbers ARE correct.5. Get pickpocketed on City and Waterloo line, then have a tantrum. Hopefully break thief's fingers.6. DO NOT GO TO LEICSTER SQUARE.7. Cabinet War rooms, Number 10, Buck Pal, etc.

Okay, I'll do that QuoteVisit the church in Trafalgar Square , where 60-70,000 people were buried in 200 sq feet during mid 1800s, prior to the Burial Acts. I think you mean St Martin's. QuoteDO NOT GO TO LEICSTER SQUARE. What happened to Leicester Square? I think one should also add: Go and see Paul Wilmott.

QuoteOriginally posted by: sdwQuotewhen I'm in London, I buy a bunch of pills, drink a lot of pints, and search the red phone booths for the perfect one night stand. Doesn't everyone do this?It's amazing what people will try to sell in these phone boxes - electrical equipment, everything. I saw a '19 year-old TV' for sale once . . . .I think you misread it....surely it said "19 year-old for sale. no HIV" maybe you just jumbled a few of the last letters.
