    Ok kind of a ridiculous question seeing as London is massive hence billions of things to do but here goes anyway...

    I've won tickets to the iTunes live festival at Camden but train tickets/a travelcard is £30 so to make the most of this ticket I want to go around London before the gig to make a day of it, spreading the travelcard's cost so it's worthwhile. Apart from the standard touristy stuff like tower bridge/london eye/imax/history crap etc which I've all done before, what are some great things to do/see around London??:confused:

    Thanks for any help

    Take a trip on the DLR and sit at the front? :love:
    Or, er, Tate Modern? See something at Barbican or some free gig somewhere (check Time Out or one of the free papers...) Go to Foyles, a massive bookshop near Tot Court Road Tube station, or look around the antique book places in Soho, or the record shops, :love: Sister Ray...

    You're coming to C-town? Walk on Hampstead Heath! So many people miss it but it's a spectacular park only a bus ride away from Camden. When you go to the top of the hill just stare back at the view, it always takes my breath away but I only live round the corner!

    OP you should go rowing on the Serpentine in hyde park.
    go to the british museum? wander round south kensington or bloomsbury
    ummm ooo take a river cruise?
    actually, you should get the DLR to east india, walk to trinity buoy wharf, go to the "fatboy's diner" then go outside and watch the awesome views of the thames, docklands and milleniukm dome

    no through the facebook thing. I used 5 email addresses and applied for every single one to make sure I got tickets! although the same band are playing near me for £9 in October so I'm not sure I'll even go to London...

    Thanks for all the ideas!

    I like just going and sitting on the South Bank and people watching. The Design Museum is near-by or you could walk along to the Tate Modern.
    Covent Garden is nice for a wonder and Leicester Square, China Town, Soho are all within walking distance.
    To be honest I prefer just wondering around when I'm in London, you'll always find something interesting going on somewhere.
