Greater London Comments

If you are in London in September you should go to Proms in the Park -- great day out and a chance to see the British at their most patriotic! take your flags and a picnic and some wine.
Don't go to London -- street art everywhere and stolen sh*t in the museums! The British are pirates, I tell you!
London is incredible. You should spend at the very least a week there. All the museums are free and the locals are all friendly and willing to help. Getting around is very easy when you use the underground. Go to Brick Lane and have some drinks. Also, for the ladies, go to Canary Wharf around 5 p.m. on a Friday -- there are loads of men at the bars who just got out of work!
I suggest to go to London for two weeks, visiting not only the central district but also suburban places like Hampstead, Richmond, Wimbledon, and Kew Gardens.
Luton airports sometimes have cheaper flights and there is an amazing hotel there called the Red Lion Inn that is super cheap and about a five euro cab ride to the airport or the train station. We took the train from London to Luton and then flew out from there.
Do the Red Bus trip around London. I gave it a miss because of the cost but someone else I knew did it and loved every second. It seems like it would be a great induction to the city to help give you a feel for where everything is and makes it a good way to pop in and out of some of the tourist attractions that you don't need a lot of time for.
