This is our way of saying the OP's question is too vague.

I would get http://www.tastecard.co.uk/ (send it to your hotel or where you stay) and then eat your way through London

Tate Modern, saatchi gallery, theatre in the evening...

Re: Going to London

In my opinion London has more to offer than any other capital in the world exhibitions are constantly changing. My family have to be out doing stuff all day, I am exhausted whenever I go. Mostly I enjoy cultural festivals- music, food dancing, art. So get fit, take a rucksack, a good pair of walking shoes/sandals, evening wear, rain coat, brolly and as much money as you can afford.
I would start with a river cruise and walk along the South Bank. Get the free magazines at the tube station, they often have loads of deals.
Remember there are day trips out of London too- Brighton, Oxford.

As above Time Out and the alternative- What's On, read those, get an A-Z street map, then plan your days.

Enjoy!

Just in case you are REALLY looking for something to do in London:
The Chelsea Physic Garden in London SW3 (Hospital Bridge Road) is beautiful at this time of the year and full of original medicinal plants.
There's the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy in Piccadilly (if you don't mind a queue)
The V&A, Science Museum and Nat. Hist. Museum are all v.close to South Ken. tube station, but you'll know that already.
Hampton Court Palace would also be worth a visit.
The Courtauld Gallery at Somerset House is wonderful.
I'll shut up now in case I'm missing the point and this is just all some secret joke-post that I'm too stupid to understand.

OK..I'm not english (sorry for the mistakes..) but here is a day out I really like in London : Spend the morning at the Camden Town market, especially the stable. Then, grab some food there (plenty of choice!!) and walk along the canal until Regent's park. Eat there and have a little nap on the grass. Then for the afternoon, you have plenty of choice between walk in the park, walk until Marylebone and Oxford street for the shopping or go in the Museum, like the Sherlock Holmes museum which is at the very far south-west of Regent's Park.
For the evening, book a ticket for a musical (Billy Elliot is quite good) or a play (I have just seen Much Ado about Nothing at the Whyndham's theater last week-end, very funny).
For a day out of London, the Kew garden are lovely and you can come back to London by a boat on the Thame.

Go here and ask for a speciality of the house - for a totally new experience.

Re: Going to London

Or for another weird culinary experience you could always try the Gasworks on Waterford Road in Fulham, SW6.

Re: Going to London

If the weather is nice, take a train to Cambridge (an hour by train) and check out the city's famous university and its surroundings. Also hire a student to take you punting on the river Cam; a student will tell you about the history of the buildings you pass as you wind your way down the river.
