When you're not into the royal family...
London baby, yeah! Explore London's streets including the Mall. Parliament Buildings and grey skies - it must be London! (Actually, the weather is great every time we visit. It was just a bit overcast this day.) The Tube stations have the best names.
Discover Brick Lane. The Ten Bells Pub. A quiet spot in Kensington Garden. St James's Park.
The Natural History Museum looking very grey but its loads of fun. The Tate Modern - try rolling a penny from the top of the ramp and see how far it goes. The Rothko room at the Tate Modern. Yummy lunch at Gail's Artisan Bakery behind Tate Modern.
Glorious, gorgeous Liberty. Plus Dover Street Market. So much good shopping...
The Battle of Britain Memorial. The Imperial War Museum and a piece of the Berlin Wall at the museum. Visit St Martin's in the Field church opposite Trafalgar Square for its unique window.
Tour Lord's cricket ground and see the teeny, tiny Ashes trophy. Van Gogh at the National Gallery. The doors of Westminster Abbey.
London icons: Abbey Road, fish and chips, phone booths and queues to get cheap theatre tickets in Haymarket.
The Cutty Sark in Greenwich, from above and below. The Museum also has a great collection of ship's mastheads. The Helter Skelter outside the museum.
A couple of photos of the Royal Naval College at Greenwich. Lord Nelson's jacket from the Battle of Trafalgar on display at the National Maritime Museum. The Prime Meridian in Greenwich.
Greenwich Park and the village. When you're done exploring Greenwich, head for this building and walk under the Thames to the Isle of Dogs. Then jump on the DLR back to the CBD.
Get out into the 'burbs (this is South Kensington) and stay at The Nadler. If you do just one royal thing, check out the Tower of London and join a tour with a Yeoman Warder (a Beefeater): it's fun, only takes an hour and is included in your ticket price.
