Firstly, stay away from Trafalgar Square at New Years not matter what you hear about it. The police try to keep everyone away to avoid the crush, people are searched by the police entering the area and there are no ceremonies. Other than that, Im not too sure sorry :-) My gorgeous fiancee and myself will be stretched out on a beach in New Zealand.
You shold be able to get some cheap tickets to plays from magazines like "Whats on" etc. If you really like all the tourist things in London, then I guess the London Eye
would be a great way to see lots of London in one go :-) Do try to avoid the huge lines at Md Tusards and if you really want to see it, go in via the Planetarium. As for places to eat, well, thats a whole new can of worms. If you like quiet surrounds, nice food, a 100% lack of smokers, then you could try the vestry on the north side of Tower Bridge by the church. very nice. some of the places around Soho are nice but there are some real tourist traps as well. There is a fantasic place on Berwick street that I forget the name of sorry. If your going to go to Tower Bridge then you really should get on one of the tours, theyre free and give you so much more insight. I was severly disapointed with the London Dungeon
as well. After the long wait, the 8 pounds and the football like crowd conditions, i was happy to leave.
Pity shockheaded Peter has finished, that was great fun.
