    I could spend a lifetime in the British Museum.

    Second favorite place would be Stonehenge.

    Third would be Whitechapel where Jack The Ripper murdered all those unfortunate hookers.

    Stirling Castle and the Wallace memorial there. The Imperial War museum and the RAF museum at Hendon. The Shuttleworth Collection. The British Museum is pretty good too.

    Cambridge looks like a Mary Poppins film set.

    They drive on the wrong side of the road over there. Practice driving on the wrong side of the road with the steering wheel on the wrong side of the car is what I suggest.

    The Ace Cafe in London.
    In fact a walk from the Houses of Parliament to the London Bridge and back along the other side of the Thames is a pleasant stroll.

    Lakes District...specifically Coniston.
    There's a lovely wee 700 year old pub there called, I think, The Sun or something similar.

    There are loads of nice restaurants along the stretch of the Thames in front of the Marriott County Hall as well.

    Have to go to the Black Swan pub up in the North York Moors as well. The dart board is over 300 years old.
