I'm about to head over to London for three weeks, yay! But what should I see while I'm there?
Home base will be roughly near Mansion House tube station. This is terribly convenient on weekdays, but apparently that part of town is kinda dead on weekends.
So my question is, what can I do on my weekends off that will fill my brain with culture?
I'm mostly looking for cultural things - museums, bookshops, old buildings, and anything that's a little bit different, or off the normal tourist track. (Interesting photo opportunities would be cool, as well.)
There's the Tower of London nearby, sure; and the West End as well (although I don't know what specifically would be worth seeing). And having rummaged through some old threads, starting the day with a coffee at the London Review Bookstore
sounds kinda awesome. But is there anything I'm missing?
(And I'll be at the meetup
