    Nice post. South Bank is by far my favourite area of London and a walk along there is a must on a nice, sunny day – Maybe after visiting the London Eye? As a Londoner, I’d add that you always need to carry a pair of sunglasses & an umbrella in London as the weather is so unpredictable!!

    Here is yet another quirky sight in London: http://wanderingislander.com/travel-inspiration-london-the-dead-man/
