I'll be in London this upcoming weekend for about 24 hours. I haven't been in about 7 years, just curious...what should I do? Any one have any good pubs I should look for?

Go and find an English cricket fan, walk up to him, point, and laugh

Then run

Gaeity, frivolity, and fun for all

After being in Kuwait for 2 months, I'll take just about anything.

Go to Brick Lane for a Curry - Aldgate East tube and ask for directions, it's a 30 second walk. There is something like 80 Indian restaurants in this small street. Also close to St Pauls, the City Of London (ie old walled city, now the main financial district).

Tate Modern is always wicked, right now their main piece in the turbine hall involves sliding in a twirling tube down five floors.

Man, so much here, I can't think of a thing. Just chuck yer map away and start walking!

Enjoy, and welcome to our city.

In my trip last month went and had a look at the Tate Modern.



If its been 7 years then what about the London Eye.



Go and have dinner at an Indian restaurant, or maybe just a regular English pub that serves meals.



Why fly non stop when you can connect

The Christmas lights in Regent Street and Oxford Street are usually worth a look.
