I'm going to visit my sister in England next month.  I'm flying into London but am only going to be able to spend a day or two there before heading to Norwich where my sister is going to school.  What are the musts in London?  Thanks.

Well, I was only there a night, but just walking around Picadilly Square, SoHo and Chinatown made the night for me. Unfortunetly that gave me a taste and now I MUST MUST MUST go back.

Try going to a show. Half price tickets are available at the kiosk in Leicester Square. I also loved the Tower of London. I know it is touristy, but I'm a sucker for that period in history. If you like Indian food, London supposedly has the best Indian food outside of India. I also really liked the Notting Hill neighborhood. Kind of a fun, hip area with great shopping, galleries, food, and a fun market on the weekend (Sunday?). Then, if you are willing to travel a bit and are a tennis fan, there is always the tube to Wimbleton.

Oh! There is SOOOO much to do and see there! I second the Brittish Musem and the Tower of London - those were our faves!!!

We also went on this double decker red bus tour. They let you get off and on all day long and provide lots of good info and you get to see so much on there -IMHO very worth it!!!

And don't forget the National Gallery, it's on Trafalgar Square and
has some amazing works of art and it's free!

Oh and DH just reminded me that a morning spent hanging out in
Covent Garden is a good time. Get your coffee at a street cafe, then
watch the street performers and go to the big street market where
they have tons of cool stuff to buy (food, jewelry, clothing, etc.)

Thanks everyone.  I'm definitely going to check out the Tower of London, British Museum, National Gallery, Covent Garden and Chowski.  My sister does want to go to a show so we'll try to fit that in as well.  I think we'll probably also just spend a lot of time walking around lost which is always fun.  We're definitely going to need 2 days I think.

We spent a week and it wasn't nearly enough time (and DH is from England and he thought so too). Another good thing is to take a boat ride up the Thames, you get a really cool perspective of the city and can see all sorts of cool places like Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament and all the cool Bridges, definitely worth a few pounds!
