    Hey guys,

    I'll be heading to the airport tomorrow to go to London. I'll be meeting up with some friends and family who are vacationing over there. The flight is going to suck! but then it's all happy time from there. :D

    I know there are many people here that have at least visited London so let's hear some suggestions. I'll be there for the next 2 weeks or so. So I'll have plenty of time to visit many places.

    I hope I don't get stuck with the guy from "Due Date". I JUST watched that movie :rolleyes:

    Is it really an 8hr flight though? Im getting mixed answers..

    I recommend visiting either Hackney or Newham boroughs. Lots to see and do.
    Maybe take a walk though East Ham or Plaistow on a nice evening.

    Can you tell me what there is to see in Hackney? Real talk you might as well tell him to go visit an estate in Peckham.

    It doesn't really matter if it's a tourist side of town or not. I just want to have a good time with kool new people that are actually from the UK. Most of the times that I go to a new place i go to where the tourists go which is pretty boring since i see the same people from here.

    Geezz you're telling an American to go to Thorpe Park and Alton Towers when they have the bets theme parks in the world. LOL

    Tower of London is a must.
    Houses of Parliament
    London Eye
    Piccadilly Circus
    Trafalgar Square
    Covent Garden
    Buckingham Palace if you like looking at big grey ugly buildings!

    All very popular for tourists.


    If you want to go out of London a few miles for a bit of history and culture go see Hampton Court, Henry VIII's residence and don't forget to try the Maze. Head on down the Thames to Windsor Castle, that's always impressive.

    Have a great trip, the weather is just about to hit 30c in London so your timing is just right.

    Oh damn I just told you all the tourist places to go. Well you need to head out of London as there's no English left there, just tourists .... ok I'm exaggerating a little but you know what I mean ;)

    I've been to London a few times and only the last time I went, I did the whole tourist tour and it was awesome. The Dungeons were super fun (watch out for that skeleton that spits on you) and I loved Camden market too. If you are going to take lots of busses /tube, get an Oyster card (I think it was called) and for six pounds, you can ride all day long.

    Holy crap guys, thanks a ton for the suggestions! This will be my first time in London so you can imagine what it's going to be like! What would be the best place to take my gf to? I know any place out there will be a good enough surprise but I want something unforgettable. Any of you guys have any experience in that "niche" :D

    I'm also going to pick up a few iPad 2's. I was going to order them a few weeks back but now that I'm going over there, I've decided to pick them up myself. At least I know I won't get scammed :biglaugh:

    Camden. If you like Bars, Bands a crazy time drinking with everyone from the
    stars to the eccentric that is the place to take your GF.
    Kew gardens is a great place to walk hand in hand and there are some nice
    real pubs down that way.
    Hit me up when you're coming I love showing off my town.
