First time to another continent. I can find all the tourist traps easy, and while we'll do alot of that, I'm also looking for suggestions for some inside info (the stuff NOT in the brochures).
Two weeks, I hope it's enough to do London proper as well as quick hits of Liverpool & Manchester (and maybe Cardiff (if the Rift is in season)).
Most important of all to the Brit Outhousers... which pub can you be found in?
Wsa in London last year with mt girlfriend. It's a great city, i really liked it.
One word of warning though, if you're gonna be using ATMs for cash, make sure you take out enough to keep you going for a while, as they can be surprisingly hard to find.
Them and public toilets.
Oh and don't go on the Londoin Eye if it's a hot day. 45 minutes in a glass bubble in direct sunlight with 15-20 other people can get pretty uncomfortable.
