    So my plans for today have changed last-minute as my friend's little boy is poorly. We were supposed to be Segway riding in Swinley forest but we've had to cancel as a result.

    That means I'm free with nothing to do all day today. Any suggestions?

    Go to a museum or a gallery if you're feeling poor, or St Pauls or the Aquarium if you've got some spare cash.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Go home early and play games all day.

    Or failing that, erm... jebus. Dunno.

    Done St Paul's and the Aquarium recently. I meant is there anything specifically on now that isn't normally? I wanted to see the Bowie exhibition but it's sold out.

    Depends what floats your boat.
    Have a look at www.walks.com - they do loads of guided tours around London. Just show up at the allotted time, pay a fiver or whatever and you can see different bits of London. There's a good one that starts at Blackfriars Bridge and goes along the South Bank a bit. Another good one starts at Monunment.

    Or, do one of the open top bus tours - they are quite interesting too. But a bit pricey

    Or, go to Natural History or Science museum.

    Or, look on fancyapint.com and visit some of the 5 pint rated pubs.

    Not as nice as I used to be

    The Pompei exhibition at the British museum is worth a look if you can get tickets.

    There's a Michael Caine exhibition at the Museum of London which is free and pretty awesome (as is the museum).

    Hairy is probably just wondering around is a daze, amazed at the large numbers of people and all the big buildings. And the lack of whippets, ferrets and racing pigeons.

    Get yourself to one of those burger restaurants mentioned in the burger appreciation thread! Have a coffee and watch the London rat race.

    What about the shard?
    Then 5 minutes up the road you have the royal observatory

    It's 25 to go up the Shard, that buys you a three bedroom house in the North.

    Museum of London is a great shout, then maybe try to go up the dome at St Pauls? It's just around the corner.

    Indeed, the Natural History and the Science museum combined knock pretty much every other museum in the world into a cocked hat!

    In London maybe, I'm not sure about the world though. Most major cities have good museums like those.

    Fair play if that's your thing.
    Certainly, London has several utterly world class museums. I've been to 'Natural History' museums in other cities and that can't touch the London one.
