London's oldest music hall might look like it's about to crumble about your ears but it has a very vibrant programme of music, theatre, magic, comedy and more. Recently saved from closure, phew!
Brush up on your trapeze, high wire and acrobatics, and learn knife throwing and lassooing. Special skills days for under 16s as well.
Want to learn tango or salsa? Hear lectures on political and moral issues? Listen to chamber music? It's all here in this hub of free speech and progressive thought.
The collected curios of Sir Henry Wellcome include death masks, fertility dolls, shrunken heads and chastity belts. Makes for a fascinating afternoon!
Something for the curious of mind and strong of stomach! All sorts of weird, wonderful and grotesque things here, and you'll learn so much about science and medicine.
Only open for the summer season and open to the elements, but one of the most atmospheric theatres in London. The park blends into the stage, the trees are the wings, every seat is a good one.
Exhibitions of contemporary art and cinema, talks, contemporary music events and a very cool café bar hangout. It's art right here, right now.
Distinctive traditional pub, rumoured to have been the Savoy Hotel's coal cellar. Gilbert and Sullivan performed here. Head down to the basement where it's a bit quieter.
Still a jaw-dropping sight, even after you've seen it nearly every day! Inside it's every bit an opulent cathedral. Do go up to the Whispering Gallery!
Extremely popular, and rightly so! Great views from the top (on a clear day). Worth booking in advance, especially on weekends and holidays.
Smashing pub right on the riverside at London Bridge, just by HMS Belfast and Tower Bridge. Great for drinks whilst gazing at London's great landmarks.
Located out in Shepherd's Bush, it's not the most central place to shop in London, but has everything you need for a whole day of shopping, eating and entertainment.
The Empire is London's biggest cinema and best screen. The many big film premieres it hosts are great for star spotting.
Just one of London's great parks (we're so lucky!). Formal gardens, wild bits, horse riding, playgrounds, tennis, outdoor swimming, the Serpentine Gallery... you could easily spend a whole day here!
Fabulous museum located in a corner of the Barbican complex. Excellent historical information on London. Then go outside and see parts of the old Roman wall!
Brilliant museum and displays, but best of all is the new (ish) glass covered atrium with the old British Library Reading Room in the centre. Wonderful just to sit in.
London's oldest and most varied live music venues was recently saved from closure (hooray!). Jazz, rock, classical, swing - dance the night away!
It's difficult to remember how this old converted power station used to be before the Tate moved in in 2000, so successful has it been! One of the best view of the river, and some fab modern art too.
Super-smart hotel on Liverpool Street, part of the Hyatt group. Treat yourself to a bit of 5 star luxury!
