    Tips for London visit?

    Hi All,

    This Wednesday I will go to London with my youngest daughter (almost 11) for a couple of days. While I've been there on business several times, this will be my first time in 20 or so years as a tourist.
    So what should I definitely see while there? Of course the famous stuff, Big Ben, St. Pauls, Buckingham Palace, Tower bridge, Millennium wheel, Harrods (girl, remember? ) but what else?

    Thanks,

    Martin

    There are lots of opportunities for going on the river these days, and the architecture facing onto the river has vastly improved in the last couple of decades. Most the boat services offer a commentary, pointing out old docks etc. Lot more fun than gawping at Buckingham Palace through the railings

    Tate Modern mostly seems full of bemused European teenagers

    I think that's a new experimental installation

    Combine your Thames boat tour with a stop off at the Greenwich Observatory.
