Hey,
My family and I will go for a short trip to London in few days......we will stay for two full days (the 12th and 13th of Feb.) and maybe you do have some ideas what to do.

We will visit Notting Hill to check out the market and the other day we will go to the Borough Market

We will stay at a Hotel in the middle of Oxford St. 50-100 meters close to Soho so obvious we will do some shopping there. We have seen the Thriller Show and the Mamma Mia musical, London Duck Tours (Cooooool) and London Eye, the Science and Natural History Museums + Madame Tussauds

My daughter would love to see a (dance) show with some contemporary choreography, but we can't find any....maybe there aren't anything like that....but if you do have some knowledge for some, please let me know

....let me know if you have some great things to see also maybe something less tourist-ish

Ohh yes, if you know any second hand record shops around Oxford St. I should visit  

thanks in advance

This is a bit of a long shot but on the corner of Oxford St/Charring Cross Rd there used to be a Burger King,downstairs they used to have a signed Abba-Esque poster hanging on the wall. That's if BK is still there,even if it is they probably have had a makeover since then and replaced it with One Direction.

London Eye

It's a great thing to try London Eye is really cool and We've been there twice.....we won't go this time, but thanks Mike

Going there anybody should buy tickets from home/online since the line there often is between 1.5 and 2 hour long....with pre-ordering tickets you can go to a separate desk and walk right in (anyway, we could)

Have you seen the old man? In the closed-down market? Kicking up the paper, with his worn out shoes?

How about a visit to Hampstead? The several times I have flown to London, I have tried to make it to Hampstead. It's a beautiful "suburb" of London. Plus Boy George's house is pretty cool to look at from the outside.

Looks like a love place, thanks I'll have that in mind if the weather is nice

A long time ago I attempted to go to Chertsey of Chertsey Endlos fame where vince had 37b studio. While just outside of London is very complicated to get to. I ended giving up.

Correct, I had one big London paper map and was staying near Paddington and saw it was near Heathrow. Problem is that it is all small English roads to get there and the motorways were too far out but I still attempted and only got halfway and gave up in an Indian neighborhood and had the best curry rice I ever ate

I bet the owner had a deal with the mapmaker.
