...yeah, one of those threads again!

From the 14th I'll be in London for a week, so if you've got any recommendations speak up! Any must-visit places not mentioned in travel guides? Like abandoned buildings, a good pub or whatever really... How about stuff like London Dungeon or the London Bridge Experience, are they worth a visit?

I hear they have Jack the Ripper tours where they show you the locations of the victims. Don't know if it's worth it or if it's more of a tourist trap, but that is something I've always wanted to do there.

London Dungeon is shit. British Museum is where it's at.

And here:

Those aside, London is aways great to wander round late at night by the river and round towards St.Pauls- avoiding of course the tourist areas Leicester Square/ Covent Garden.

British Museum fucking rules. Set aside a whole day to check it out, it's huge. Enjoy drinking lots of good beer!

British Museum rules.

If you like great art check National Gallery.

Camden was terrible when I visited three like four years ago, the same second hand crap that you'll find everywhere and, if that matters, metal was scarse.

Worth it:
- British Museum
- The Whisky Exchange + additional specialist retailers (if you're into that sort of thing)
- Natural History Museum
- pubs in general
- some decent occult bookstores like Treadwells and Atlantis (again, if you're into that sort of thing)

Avoid the London Dunegon at all costs. I went back in 2007 and they'd taken out almost all of the wax figures and basically turned it into a walk-through haunted house/tour with some gay-ass ride at the end. I remember it being expensive, too.

I spent few days there and Hobgoblin was the best metal pub for my taste. In fact was the single one that I enjoyed.

The Hobgoblin is a cool place indeed.
Tried to go to the London Stone but each time : nobody, no music, nothing... like if it was down but still opened (a shame as the place itself is awesome).

Otherwise, National Gallery AND National Portrait Gallery are mandatory for anyone into Art. Westminster is worth a visit too.

Borough Food Market to pick up some good English produce and a decent lunch.

There a loads of decent pubs in London, but for metal then Cro Bar, The Intrepid Fox & The Dev (Formally Hobgoblin) are all good.

The Imperial War Museum is a must.

The Tate Britain Gallery has some amazing paintings, e.g.

Satan, Sin and Death:


The Deluge:


The Great Day of His Wrath:


And, as with any major European city, watch out for fucking pickpockets on the tube.
