    Default Things to do in London

    Going to be spending some time in London over the next few months, there is only so many Pot Noodles and Tissues I can use in my hotel, so looking for ideas for things to do on a weekday evening in London...
    Politicians are wonderfull people, as long as they stay away from things they don't understand, like working for a living!

    Default London

    Good time to be in London, during summer stuck in a city with only a hotel to call home is frustrating when you hanker for a game of golf or go for a beer with your mates.

    What I normally do is:

    Pop to the cinema once a week (occasionally a west end show)
    Some nights go shopping – Oxford street / Selfridges / Harrods, typical touristy haunts, though that gets boring after a while!
    I play golf so go to the golf centre in canary wharf one evening a week to practice / have lessons
    I have joined a gym here so attempt to at least show my face once or twice a week
    Often wander to galleries / touristy stuff is open late (recently went to the Titanic exhibition at the O2 which was very interesting)

    Enjoy!

    See what's on at the theatre - many mid-week tickets are reduced.

    Last year in London, three of us got together and did a culture evening most weeks - went to the theatre, ballet, opera, comedy.....

    Not sure whether it counts as culture, but I went to see Avenue Q with cojak

    It might also be worth looking at the Taste of London cards or getting on some email lists for restaurants for some good deals.

    The place is dead most nights. Don't even bother looking.
