Not sure what the 4x reference is about...

How long you staying for?
Where about in London are you staying?
Is it just you or family?

Too many unknowns to give you a real answer. I love London, uber expensive to live there... Easy to get around most of it on the underground & buses.

Not sure what 4x means? But there plenty to see I'm sure.

Worked in London city centre a few times never again. Too many people and traffic.

Enjoy your visit, don't forget the rest of the country.

Yeah, I find his post really hard to decipher. Kind of a combination of 'text-speak' and unknown abbreviations?

I think the 4x means he's been there 4 times before.

Hopefully he'll come back and clarify?

Jump on a plane and come up to scotland. Play some golf do some hillwalking and admire the amazing scenery.
If you must stay in London avoid things like Madame tusauds. If you've kids there's the Harry Potter studios.
You could tour some of the soccerball stadiums although the only one worth looking at is 200 miles north in manchester and its red.

We went to England last year.  I was amazed at how pub food had improved since ten years ago.  Many had fresh veg and meat that wasn't overcooked!

It sounds like Jesse got on the wrong train (TGV). Were they speaking French?

No way man.   Visiting London is like visiting Europe and Pakistan, afghanistan, Africa any third world country really.   Saves you a lot of money traveling.

Make sure you visit the Tower of London (free to walk around outside...) At the moment they have the most amazing display of poppies. I'll try and get a photo up later, we visited there a couple of weeks ago, and I was very impressed with the display. They are planting a ceramic poppy for every person who lost there life during the wars, approx 882000.

St Paul's is also a great visit, £16 entrance fee. Approx  500 steps to the top! No elevators...

'The Shard' is also quite impressive, but the lack of facilities at the top of the viewing platform doesn't warrant the £25 fee in my opinion.
