Help out a poor American tourist

Post by Orb Master44 on Sun Nov 06, 2011 5:18 am

Hey team, been too long! Well, I'd like to say that I've stopped by because I love you all and wanted to catch up, but it would be a lie. At least in part. I've stopped by because I know several of your are native England-ers and I'll be passing through London for a day or two in mid-December. Any suggestions on what to do or see? Anything that's fantastic and cheap?

I'll actually be spending two weeks traveling all over Europe, and I'd ask for suggestions on that, but it's mostly already planned. Should be passing through Venice, Barcelona, Paris, Geneva, Munich, and a few other places. I'm rather excited Very Happy. The day or two in London is right at the end, since I fly out of the London ariport on the 15th.

Hope you're all doing well!

If you're into that kinda stuff, there are loads museums in London that are either free or very cheap. The Natural History Museum and the Science Museum would be my two recommendations, but then again, I am a science nerd.

Although not cheap, some of the theatre in the west end is well worth a visit.

Oh, and I personally think the London Eye is overrated.

Hope you have fun!

Morbius, cut it the f*ck out. Orbie is asking for some advice, and no one really appreciates you pretending to be a Mahjarrat. This is exactly why so many of us dislike you, you are incapable of keeping your own, totally unrelated, shit out of other people's threads. Give Orbie some helpful advice or get out of this thread for f*ck's sake.

Word of advice...

It doesn't take a great deal of time getting used to the travel system in London. In most cases, you'll get where you need to be very quickly and with little delay.

I'd recommend the natural history museum for a whole day trip. I went there once and stayed for the entire time it was open and still hadn't seen everything, it's that large. The Science Museum is also worth seeing, but it can be difficult keeping track of where you are.

I only saw one production in the West End and that was the Lion King, but you can see that anywhere. I am unaware if they are showing anything else, just keep an eye on the schedules and on your wallet, London can really take it out of your wallet. Then again, you can still just enjoy the atmosphere.

@Dark Avorian - No one likes you either. You seem to be a worthy sacrifice, moreso than Orb.

Good to see you, Orb. Keeping well? Smile

I've only been to London once, myself, but I suppose I can spare a few recommendations.
First of all, I agree with Slayer in that the London Eye's a little empty.
Sure, you'll be gazing over Big Ben, the Houses or Parliament and the Thames
one minute, but you'll spend a good few more staring out into the smudged,
motley sprawl that is the East End right afterwards.
Morb's got the right idea with plays, there's always a great selection in the
theatre houses. From playful tales like the Lion King to more esteemed ones
like Phantom of the Opera.
There's the Tower of London if you enjoy history. Eerie history at that.
And then there's Harrods’s, the massive department store. Honestly, it's a lot
more than just a shop; it's one of the grandest, most ostentatious places
you'll ever enter, filled with the most over-the-top things and gilded in
equally over-the-top decor... but it manages to be tasteful with it all. Even
if you don't buy anything, it's a great thing just to see. Meow

I don't know London, despite being a Englandee... I couldn't give you much advice. Sad

I hope you have a great time though!

I can't even think of any food chains that are decisively British, since one of my favourite things about holidays is the different foods. Wink

If all good things come to an end then we're living in a world where evil wins. 

If there once was love then maybe something survived. If we find a single diamond in the rough then it's worth it. Through a thousand tears if there's one drop of love then it's worth it.

British Food is a treat, mainly because decent examples of it can be difficult to find amongst the high street. A good English Breakfast is the best way to start. Try a few pubs.

Ah yes, pub food. Smile

Note that our portions are--so I've heard from English Tourists in America--half the size of your portions. Also, we don't typically have sweet-food for breakfast.

Dang, you actually gave helpful advice. Oh, and by the way, it's not that no one likes you, it's that you can be really annoying...that doesn't necessarily mean we dislike, it jsut means you sometimes make us want to flip a shit.
