Greater London Comentários

If you like Castles and historic places and are spending a week or more in Londres and the rest of UK, then get the Great British Heritage pass before you leave home. You save heaps of money. For only around $80-$90 AUS you can get a pass for 15 days that gets you in free everywhere (except for Tower of London which is half price). Considering entry prices at castles and historic properties range from 8 - 15 GB pounds you save a lot. You can use it also at places like Roman Baths museum at Bath and at Stonehenge too. We used it in London for Hampton Court Palace, Kensington palace and Windsor Castle. You can also use it in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
The "Big Red Bus" and "Original Bus" tours are a great way to see Londres and top sights. Some routes have a live guide and some have recorded conmmentary. Busses are double decker, some with open tops. Pay one price for the day, hop on or off at any stop, Thames river tour included in price.
Be sure to take one of the Londres Walks tours - they're marvelous, cheap, and let you see and learn more about London than you could on your own!
If you are in Londres 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.
I suggest spending at least one week in Londres if it's the first time you go there. The best place in London for those who are keen on history (particularly the XXth century) is the Imperial War Museum on Lambeth Road (metro Lambeth North). The entrance is free. There are permanent exhibitions about the holocaust and "live" experiences of the trenches in the 1st World War or the bombings of London in the 2nd World War. Tanks, aircrafts, and guns are also in the hall. I spent there three days and I suggest it to everyone.
I strongly suggest if going to Londres that you buy an A-Z book. It is very helpful with traveling the buses and tube stations as well as other attractions to see and places to eat.
