Heading to London in a couple weeks...

Besides the ACE Cafe, what are some must do things? Buddy of mine recommended Carnaby Street and Covent Garden, but other than that I really haven't got a plan.

Going there with the bookkeeper (she's on the payroll) to see Jack White's last show of his tour at the 02 Arena.

Looking for pub and hotel recommendations as well.

Your Old Buddy,

YAHBO

The Mad Hatter hotel (I love the South Bank and can forgive it it's eccentricities); great breakfast too.

Whilst we're on the South Bank, the George Inn, Southwark, right next to Borough Market where you'll find some good food.

Some of the best Museums are in London or an alternative view would be Camden Lock. The place is full of music venues, every type of food imaginable but like all cities a bit on the expensive side. The open top bus tour tickets will save you lots of walking as you can hop on and off or the Oyster card is worth a look depending on your stay duration. A good bike custom scene about too depending on your tastes.

Brilliant.

Mad Hatter was excellent! Thanks for the recommendation, Wildman. We are hitting the Jack White show tonight at the 02 Arena and then gonna do the bus tour thing tomorrow.

Weather is 52F and kinda cloudy but way better than expected.
